6.0_BETA Dom0 does not start X any more
First of all, I sent this twice to this list already but it never
showed up -- I am guessing that this is because the other mail
contained MIME attachments. I am sending them as links instead.
I am running a NetBSD Dom0 with several HVM DomUs on a Dell Zino HD,
which has all AMD/ATI components. The setup was working fine under
5.99.51 with Xen 3.3. I had a custom Dom0 kernel that included an alc
network driver and used no ACPI drivers. The xen and NetBSD kernel is
loaded from grub2.
Now I upgraded to the latest xenkernel33 and 6.0_BETA. Contrary to
5.99.51, the kernel only boots _with_ ACPI (even GENERIC). So my Dom0
kernel only contains alc in addition to XEN3_DOM0.
However, when booting this kernel, X does not start, while it does
The DMESG of the two kernels can be found at:
The error message from X is:

Does anybody have any ideas? Are there known problems with X under a Dom0?
The first essential in chemistry is that you should perform practical
work and conduct experiments, for he who performs not practical work
nor makes experiments will never attain the least degree of mastery.
