Hello,

I've installed XEN on my laptop (Dell Precision M6700 with a Nvidia Quadro K4000 video card). XEN works (I can reach my computer by SSH and all the parameters seem to be fine) but, locally, my screen turns to blank.
"Pre-boot" is fine and the start of OpenRC init process too : I can see messages on the local console. Then, in the middle of the process, screen turns blank.

My computer works in full EFI mode (EFI stub), without GRUB. The FB driver is the EFIFB. All is OK in a non XEN mode.

Informations :


XEN is installed with efi useflag. Kernel version is 3.10.5-gentoo-r1.

I probably missed something... Thanks!

UPDATE : seems to be a nvidia problem when Optimus is disabled : console is OK when Optimus is enabled.

Did you fix it? I have similar problem now with my Asus laptop after installing 3.10.7 kernel. It's Optimus capable laptop as well. Any help would be much appreciated.
