A couple of observations.
1) When I just had the xen kernel, I installed the original non-xen kernel
using rpm -ivh, and booted to it. This gave sadc errors on bootup.
With the newly installed normal kernel there are no longer any sadc errors
2) I measured the frame rate for both the xen and non-xen kernels in this
laptop using glxgears....
For the xen kernel it was originally about 1100 fps - and when I installed
the non-xen kernel as well it reduced to about 850fps when running the
With the newly installed non-xen kernel after a re-install of the OS,
glxgears also gives about 850fps.
