  1. Bug#481485: linux-image-2.6.25-2-686: nVidia driver fails to compile due to active Xen support

    Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-686
    Version: 2.6.25-3
    Severity: important


    After upgrading to debian kernel 2.6.25 the compilation fo the nVidia
    driver (from nvidia-kernel-source package) fails saying it's a Xen
    kernel.

    Xen appears to be active in the "normal"
    (linux-image-2.6.25-2-686) kernel:

    $ grep XEN /boot/config-2.6.25-2-686
    CONFIG_XEN=y
    CONFIG_XEN_BLKDEV_FRONTEND=m
    CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_FRONTEND=m
    CONFIG_HVC_XEN=y

    I'm not sure if this is a kernel packaging issue or a
    nvidia-kernel-source package issue but with kernel 2.6.24-1-686 the same
    didn't happen.

    This is incorrect. It have Xen support enabled but is no special Xen
    kernel. This is a bug in nvidia-kernel-source, reassigning.
