[Xen-users] openSUSE-13.2 boot/graphic issues


this is a new installation of openSUSE-13.2 with xen-4.4.2_06-27.2.

When booting openSUSE-13.2 with XEN hypervisor the boot logging on the
console shows only the the upper part of the lines.

When switching to graphical login the screen is messed up.

Booting openSUSE-13.2 w/o XEN works fine, so I assume its the graphic card.

The graphic card:
~ # lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Core
Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0042] (rev 12)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:8383]
Kernel driver in use: i915
~ #

xen-4.0.1_21326_08-0.7.1 was runnung ok with openSUSE-11.3 with this

The same installation, openSUSE-13.2 and xen-4.4.2_06-27.2, runs well on
another machine with this graphic card:
~ # lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
[AMD/ATI] RV710 [Radeon HD 4350/4550] [1002:954f]
Subsystem: PC Partner Limited / Sapphire Technology Device [174b:0e13]
Kernel driver in use: radeon
~ #

Another attempt was booting opensuse-13.2-xen with dbg,
Command line: root=UUID=435aff07-87b5-4961-a729-5a99c3ade4b7 ro
resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/... splash=silent quiet showopts vga=normal

The console output is still halfline only and the Xwindow login screen
is distorted.
Keyboard entry is not possible.
It is however possible to login over XDMCP.
But after some minutes the system hangs.

Hints and suggestions would be very much appreciated.
