I have a virtual machine landscape consisting of a CentOS 5.3 Dom0 with
Xen 3.1.2, some PV CentOS DomU's with PCI passthrough (same versions),
and I'm trying to implement a F10 DomU with PCI passthrough. I set
everything up for the passthrough, and the F10 guest can't see any of
the devices with lspci. If I boot a CentOS PV machine with the same PCI
passthrough configuration, the devices show up with lspci. I've seen
some posts in various places about this issue, but no solutions. How do
I implement this?
I have been using Michael Young's Xen Dom0 kernels. With kernel 2.6.34
in Rawhide, what is keeping Xen 4.0 and a DomU kernel from being pushed
to Rawhide? My understanding was that kernel 2.6.33 would provide the
pvops features required to make a Dom0 kernel palatable to Fedora. Did
this feature not make this release?
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/XenPvopsDom0 has not been updated
in a while, but I suspect that a Xen Dom0 kernel will not be in Fedora 13.

Should we update Xen version to 4.0.0 (-rc7) for F13? All the new pvops dom0 kernel
trees require the new IOAPIC stuff from either Xen 3.4.3 or 4.0.0 anyway.
xen-4.0.0-rc7 src.rpm from M A Young seems to work OK for me:
Xen 4.0.0 is expected to get final soon, so we could then update the final release
What do you guys think?

I think the fedora-xen can be upgraded to the 4.0.0 now right ?

I just tried kernel-126.96.36.199-1.2.92.xendom0.fc12.x86_64 from Mike
Young's repository on my MacBook and found that the video driver does
not seem to work. Lspci reports:
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 9400M (rev b1)
The system boots fine until X is supposed to start. Once this happens,
the console freezes. Otherwise, the system continues to operate and
respond to network traffic.
The last thing I seen in Xorg.0.log is "(II) NOUVEAU(0): Opened GPU
channel 2." In a *working* configuration, the next message logged is
"(II) NOUVEAU(0): [DRI2] Setup complete."
There seems to be some related work here:
I have seen that other people are having some video problems and wanted
to add my own (on the mailing list until we are in Rawhide / Bugzilla).
