You will need XEN_FBDEV_FRONTEND in kernel for that and a running getty on tty1 to see anything and get a login prompt.

the pvinstaller xcp triggers on vm installation run with vnc enabled, so it is possible.

i have just tested it myself right now, it works.. you will probably see not much on hvc0 console then.

i used

vfb = [ 'type=vnc,vnclisten=ip,vncunused=1' ]

in my xmdomainconfig.cfg
