Hello

this is not a major issue, I'm very happy than xen nvidia drivers work. However, switching to text console does not work - the monitor goes to power saving mode.

The card is 8600 GT, xen 3.1.3, latest F8 xen kernel 2.4.21.7.sth (custom build), xorg nvidia packages 173.14.12-1 from livna, nvidia.ko from livna. Plus a parallel setup with 2.4.24 non-xen custom kernel, where switching to console works

There are no errors in Xorg.0.log, there are warning about monitor modes that are contradictory according to Xorg. There is this is dmesg during startup:

Is the problem with text console a known issue?

Thanks,
