[Xen-users] Xen and ATI Radeon 4200

Hi there,

I've been trying to find out why my X server is not working with xen and my ati radeon driver, this is what I've got

uname -a
Linux netwarrior 3.2.4-debian #1 SMP Sun Mar 11 22:50:18 ART 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Driver      "fglrx"

grub config
menuentry 'Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.2.4 Debian' --class debian --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
    insmod part_msdos
    insmod ext2
    set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 633a6cf2-a395-4721-8c94-d18b3824e32d
    echo    'Loading Linux 3.2.4-Debian ...'
    linux    /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.4-debian root=/dev/sda1 ro

Not working configuration
menuentry 'Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.2.4 Debian and XEN 4.1.2' --class debian --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os --class xen {
    insmod part_msdos
    insmod ext2
    set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 71003eb6-abaa-49bf-99a0-c4fd2a85d773
    echo    'Loading Linux 3.2.4 Debian ...'
    multiboot    /boot/xen-4.gz placeholder
    module    /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.4-debian placeholder root=/dev/sda1 ro

If I boot without the hypervisor I can run X without any problem, booting up with the hypervisor xdm halts with the following
(EE) fglrx(0): V_BIOS address 0x0 out of range
(EE) fglrx(0): Invalid video BIOS signature!
(EE) fglrx(0): GetBIOSParameter failed
(EE) fglrx(0): PreInitAdapter failed
(EE) fglrx(0): PreInit failed
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Now I found this thread:

So, based on the thread above, does it mean that there is no way I can make it work? I thought the kernel itself was responsible for managing
the devices, not the hypervisor.

Thanks for your time and support
