I'm using Debian/lenny, i.e. Xen 3.2, with kernels 2.6.18. I'm running all of this on a HP nc8430 laptop with hardware virtualization enabled.

The trouble comes on dom0 with the fglrx driver (the proprietary driver for ATI graphics card Mobility Radeon X1600). This driver works perfectly when running without Xen.

With Xen, if I don't use the kernel module fglrx, it is ok, but I do not have hardware accelerated 3D graphics. When I load the fglrx kernel module into the kernel, the screen shows dumb stuff : a square for the mouse, the rest blank, no greeter, and I cannot do anything.

Is there a chance someone has this configuration runnig? (Xen with ati 3D)
Is it possible? Am I doing something wrong? Or should I complain to ATI?
