When I boot into the dom0 kernel. The system is not able to find the

I switch the virtual console and install the

But I am not able to do similar thing in the case of pvops kernel.
How can I keep this video driver installed across the kernel updates.
Note that this driver is a proprietary driver from NVIDIA.


I would think this would not work.. but you never know. Did you run the
package? Did it install/compile the modules? Did it change your Xorg
file? Did you crank up the verbosity of the kernel and Xen to see what
is happening.

Please do look at the PVOPS Wiki (just google for it) for how to set
those verbosity functions.

As far as I know, the nvidia installer explicitly tests for Xen and does
nothing/fails if present.

This can be handled by setting the shell variable


before starting the installer.
