In desolve, it is possible to specify (for a second order ODE) two different types of initial conditions i.e.: y(x_0) = y_0, y(x_1) = y_1 and y(x_0) = y_0, y'(x_0) = s_0.
Is it also possible to specify initial conditions of the form y(x_0) = y_0, y'(x_1) = s_1?

The relevant part of the docs is:
So the first to boundary conditions you gave are ok. But the mixed boundary conditions don't work - you'll have to get the general solution and enforce the boundary conditions semi-manually. Here's a sage notebook with examples.
