The PVFB is not a PCI device, so it won't show up in lspci.

From the screenshot it looks like xen-fbfront is setup correctly since you
have a text console on it. But do you have a /dev/fb0 device node in the

Do you have the xorg drivers for "fbdev" (which is the driver part of the X
server which knows how to drive a /dev/fb0 device)Âinstalled in your domU?
Does the Xorg.0.log log file referenced in your screenshot have any further
information? This should be the first place to look for more clues. I
suggest you post the whole thing to the list.

I don't know but I suspect the use of "vesa" in your xorg.conf is wrong. In
fact I understood that modern Xorg was capable of auto probing most things
and that an xorg.conf wasn't often needed, but this may differ from distro
to distro etc and I don't know if it applies to Ark or not.

http://wiki.xen.org/old-wiki/xenwiki/VirtualFramebuffer.htmlÂis very out of
date, but at the bottom it has an example xorg.conf which looks more like
the sort of thing I would expect to be needed (in the case where anything
is needed at all).
