It's been a while since I tried, so I decided to upgrade my system
again to the latest Xen (3.0.2), and see how far I can get with a X
session on a dom1, using a second graphics, usb and audio card.

After reading about Bernhard Kuhns configuration I got optimistic
about getting this configuration running.
(see http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/CoolConfigurations )

However, I don't seem to be able to get passed the console tty
issue, which X somehow still seems to be needing:

   Fatal server error:
   xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open /dev/tty0

I tried creating the device with mknod, but although it now exists,
X is still not able to open it. (tried a cat /dev/tty0, didn't work either,
so I guess the device really doesn't exist in Xen dom1 ).

Bernhard seems to have managed to get it to work somehow...
Anyone know how?

Since I do have the necessary hardware available in dom1, is there a
way to get the console working in dom1 with my second graphics card
and the usb keyboard? I would not mind hacking the console driver
a bit to fix this (although I'm not familiar with it, so might be a while
before I get anything usefull).

Warm regards,
