Re: [Xen-devel] Re : Re : Re : Re : Re : Re : Re : Re: Patches for VGA-Passthrough XEN 4.2 unstable

Hello, I'm trying vga-passthrough with an nVIDIA card.
I am at the end of the way, I have applied the patches without problems. I
have configured my winxp DomU as follow:

kernel = '/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader'
builder = 'hvm'
memory = '512'

#Number of CPUâs
vcpus = 1       

# Disks
disk = [ 'file:/xen/domains/win01/disk.img,ioemu:hda,w',
'file:/home/WindowsXP-SP2/image.iso,ioemu:hdc:cdrom,r' ]

# Hostname
name = 'win01'

# Networking
vif = ['type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0']

pci  = [ '01:00.0' ]*

acpi = 1
on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'

I have read that it is not possible to use VNC if I passed-through-VGA Card,
as Tobias says here:

So I have two probems, 
I don't know how to attach a Monitor to the passed-through-VGA Card,
how can I do this in the cfg file?
Should I use another option to disable the cirrus emulated card in the cfg

Could anyone with an nVIDIA card passed-throughed post his config file here? 
Thanks you very much to everyone in advance
