Xen, OpenSuse 11.3 and propietary Drivers.


Hallo:

I'm trying to install Xen on Opensuse 11.3. Tried with 2 computers:
1- Laptop AMD with ATI HD Radeon HD 4650
2- Desktop Intel with Nvidia.

Both computers are updated with last pacackages and propietary drivers for graphics cards.

After installing Xen and restarted, if start OpenSuse, no problem.
But if start with Xen, Desktop is unable to start X and laptop hangs.
So I supponse it's a problem with graphics driver.

Can any tell me how to install Xen in OpenSue 11.3 when using propietary drivers?

Thanks

I've looked for more information in the forums.

It looks like proprietary drivers (Nvidia/ATI) don't work with Xen.

So the only way is to use opensource drivers.

Can any confirm me this?

Is there an easy way to install/configure Xen in OpenSuse 11.3 when proprietary drivers are already install?

Thanks
