Hey guys. I was trying to play around with Xen some time ago and gave up because I was using NVidia drivers and they aren't supported in Xen, so when I would boot the xen kernel, video would never work and I would get a blank screen. I want to try again now but I still want my default non-xen kernel to boot with the nvidia driver.
I figure I can create a boot script (or add to an existing one) that unloads the nvidia modules for that particular boot if it recognizes the xen kernel. The problem is I don't know where to do this and at what stage in the boot process video modules are loaded/configured.
Does anyone know what a good place to start is or if there is an easier way (like an extra boot parameter added to xen section in grub)?
KDE 4.1 Factory (SUSE repo's)
I plan on submitting a 'how to' for this problem if I can get it working.
Thanks for your help.
NOTE: There is a way to compile an older version of the nvidia drivers to work with the xen kernel, however, I do not want to do this.
