All of these:
Framebuffer in xen works.
Switching between virtual consoles and X works.
Those work fine on my Thinkcentre P IV running Sl5, and on my HP DC7700
running F8, but SL5 is a basket case.
On the Thinkcentre, "modprobe intelfb" gets framebuffer,
I don't recall what, if anything, I had to do to f8, I'm running f9 and
that lacks a dom0 kernel (but I have kvm).
Switching works as one would expect on the Thinkcentre (but "fbset
--all" is advantageous).
Switching on SL5 gets various, somewhat random, video corruption in VCs
and in X.
