Our open-source software development group, Platon SDG, created a patch for 2.4.29 vanilla kernel.
It does work for us.

Hi,
I have the following problem:
xserver running at 1024x768
fbset says it cannot set mode 1024x768 so I have to live with 800x600

I suspect it has something to do with the monitor... (which is very old)
Is there something I can do?

dmesg:
Code:

vesafb: NVIDIA Corporation, NV34 Board - p162-1nz, Chip Rev    (OEM: NVIDIA)
vesafb: VBE version: 3.0
vesafb: protected mode interface info at c000:f0c0

vesafb: hardware supports DCC2 transfers

this is also funny:

Could this guide be updated with the following information?

1) How to disable vesafb-tng from kernel-line when a default resolution is specified in Kernel
2) How to change among the compiled-in fonts from the kernel-line

PostPosted: Mon Feb 07, 2005 9:47 am    Post subject: disable vesa-tng Reply with quote

As far as I know the framebuffer is switched on by he video kernel command line option. If you don't specify anything else then the default driver will be used. Vesa-tng will try the default mode compiled into kernel BUT will downgrade silently to the next best mode available. To see what mode is being used type
Code:
fbset
into the console.

Btw, if you use themes, there is only 1 RESOLUTION compiled into the initrd image, so make sure it MATCHES what fbset says the resolution is.

Code:

miro@miro2000 / $ fbset

mode "800x600-60"
    # D: 40.000 MHz, H: 37.879 kHz, V: 60.317 Hz
    geometry 800 600 800 1200 8
    timings 25000 88 40 23 1 128 4
    hsync high
    vsync high
    rgba 8/0,8/0,8/0,0/0
endmode


Code:

splash_geninitramfs -v -g /boot/fbsplash-emergence-800x600 -r 800x600 default

Use the -r parameter to specify the resolution.

The initrd image is only needed for a background up to the
*setting console image* boot message, then ALL RESOLUTIONS are available. This was the reason I had background for console but not during boot:(

Dunno about the compiled, but to change the font in console use
Code:
 setfont <font>

Available fonts can be found in /usr/share/consolefonts.
To set a default font for all consoles edit rc.conf and change the line #CONSOLEFONT=default8x16
to
CONSOLEFONT=<your font>.
I have mine set to
CONSOLEFONT=drdos8x14.
Looks really nice.

How can I disable vesa-tng when it's using a default mode like this? I find FBDev in Xorg very slow, and I like to have a Terminal runlevel. I can't, as far as I'm aware, have the module load in the Terminal runlevel unless I hack up a script myself. I was hoping there was a faster way.

To disable, just edit your grub/lilo config and remove the video command line parameter (and reboot:).

DON'T copy paste the following, it is my config and WILL NOT work for you.

For grub I have:
Code:

title Gen 2 (2.6.10)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /bzImage-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda6 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr splash=verbose,theme:default
        initrd /boot/fbsplash-emergence-800x600


to disable framebuffer
Code:

title Gen 2 (2.6.10)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /bzImage-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda6
        initrd /boot/fbsplash-emergence-800x600

(notice the video stuff removed)
(the initrd is also useless)
Now you get the default 80x25 ASCII console with no graphics.

I maybe don't understand what you are trying to do so please
say whats the current state and how it you want to look it like.

Hey, I'm reiterating two problems I've got here.

1) I want to disable the compiled in default resolution for vesafb-tng.
Here is information to help the suggestions.
Code:

# cat /proc/cmdline
root=/dev/hda2 udev nodevfs video=ywrap,mtrr


Code:

# uname -a
Linux Aenthelles 2.6.11-rc2-nitro0 #2 Mon Feb 7 22:01:01 PST 2005 i686 Celeron (Coppermine) GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

PS: These framebuffer issues are not unique to this kernel version.

Code:

# more /boot/config-`uname -r`
...
<snip>
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
# CONFIG_FB_VESA_STD is not set
CONFIG_FB_VESA_TNG=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA_DEFAULT_MODE="1024x769@60"
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
<snip>
CONFIG_FB_RADEON=m
<snip>
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
# CONFIG_MDA_CONSOLE is not set
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONTS=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y
CONFIG_FONT_6x11=y
# CONFIG_FONT_PEARL_8x8 is not set
# CONFIG_FONT_ACORN_8x8 is not set
CONFIG_FONT_MINI_4x6=y
CONFIG_FONT_SUN8x16=y
# CONFIG_FONT_SUN12x22 is not set
<snip>
# Logo configuration
#
# CONFIG_LOGO is not set
# CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_LCD_SUPPORT is not set
# CONFIG_FB_SPLASH is not set


Code:

# lspci | grep VGA
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R100 QD [Radeon 7200]


I'm not using the Radeon framebuffer module.
I do not wish to have vesafb modularized.

Even when having no kernel commandline at all, I run in 1024x768 as one would expect.

Is there any way to disable this behaviour and revert me to a 80x25 non-framebuffered terminal using a commandline parameter?
I want to be able to pass softlevel=withx (which already is set up) as well as such a parameter to disable FB so that I do not need to use XFree_FBDev (Is it now called Xorg_FBDev, rather? Looks like some documentation in the kernel tree needs updating soon) with Xorg. The reason that I don't want to use XFree_FBDev is that it seems slower; however, this could just be my sillyness. My Xorg logs appear to say that I'm running a standard DRM + DRI Xserver ((II) RADEON(0): Direct rendering enabled, (II) RADEON(0): Render acceleration enabled, etc). Is it necessarily a speed increase to not have a framebuffer on the console? This whole problem might not even be a problem at all.

2) In addition; As the .config above shows, I have multiple fonts compiled in to the kernel for use with console framebuffer. Is there any way to change which is used? I presume, again, that this would be a kernel commandline parameter, as the fonts are contained within the kernel rather than utilized by some userland application.

Can I get some help or suggestions from someone who knows what they're about?

What is the current status of Bootsplash? With the current kernel (2.6.11.6), which one is supported: bootsplash or fbsplash?

i'd like to know too, as I tried boith teh bootsplash tutorial and the tutorial in GWN about the livecd-2005.0 splashutils
none of them worked, I only got to set teh framebuffer on w/o bootsplash and in hte 2.6.11-gentoo-r6 kernel I cant find the bootsplash option :(

As far as Gentoo is concerned, the only 'bootsplash' solution that is being actively developed and de facto the only one that is supported with the recent kernels is fbsplash + splashutils. If the short tutorial in the GWN wasn't precise enough, you could always try the excellent fbsplash guide at Gentoo Wiki.

I followed the 2005.0 nptl gcc 3.4.3 guide a while ago and set up the framebuffer acordingly. The framebuffer shows up fine and I've added splash to boot so it shows up earlier but there are some devices that are behaving weird when booting in framebuffer mode. My ethernet won't work and usb behaves very unpleasent (for ex my usb keyboard won't work). I've also checked the wiki howto recently for alternative options. I've tried radeonfb, vesafb and vesafb-tng. They all behave different, vesafb is the best though.

vesafb - no corruptions, usb and ethernet not working
vesafb-tng - corruptions, usb and ethernet not working
radeonfb - color messup (text nearly unreadable), usb and ethernet not working
no framebuffer - working normal

here is my grub.conf

Code:

#
# Boot automatically after 5 secs.
timeout 5

# By default, boot the second entry.
default 0

# Fallback to the first entry.
fallback 0

# Use default Grub Splash image

Trying to install gentoo 2005.1, by stage 3 networkless install, on Compaq Evo N110 laptop:

I tried the fb-no-splash solution at the top of this topic, and can't yet get it to work:

Using the kernel config points as closely as I can (the gentoo 2005.1 tree has slighly different kernel cfg options), along with the grub kernel boot params for vesafb and vga, my laptop (has trident cyberblade graphics and 1024*768 screen), gave a loud click on boot and lost all display and kbd control. I tried other permutations involving vesafb, and they all gave problems ranging from 'big bang' at worst, down to screen split vertically into from 2-5 identical repeated columns which wrote simultaneously (multiple login prompts on the same line, etc).

The closest I have got to fb success yet, is by disabling vesafb in the kernel config, enabling tridentfb, and for boot params in grub, using video=tridentfb:... and vga=791 kernel boot parameters as suggested by the documentation. That gives a full-screen hi-def small-font console result which matches vga=791 and would be ok _except_ that the screen doesn't clear, neither on 'clear' nor on '^L'. (The same hardware works perfectly in Suse 9.2, Knoppix 3.9 and also in the Gentoo 2005.1 install-CD boot-up environment itself, so it doesn't seem to be to blame.)

So far, I have a choice between a screen that writes in one chunk but doesn't clear, or a screen that writes in from 2-5 repeated vertical strips (but sometimes clears)!

Any ideas what kinds of kernel-config point or grub boot param might be responsible for these effects?

Thanks in advance

Have you tried using vesafb-tng? If you try this framebuffer, you need to specify your grub config similar to using the other framebuffer vesafb with a line similar to this:

Quote:
Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda4 append="gentoo=nodevfs udev devfs=nomount acpi=on softlevel=network hdc=ide-cd" quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1 video=vesafb:1280x1024-32@60,ywrap,pmipal splash=silent,fadein,theme:Cynapses


Notice the use of 'vesafb'. This is not a typo.

As it's been mentioned before, the HOWTO_fbsplash guide on the Gentoo Wiki is an excellent source of guidance.

Your grub config looks fine. The problem will be what version of fbsplash you are using and how your kernel config is setup.

Check out how ferret is setup here. That's a pretty good summary of what you need to do. If using udev, be sure it's at least 058.

BTW, Here's an example of what I use:

Code:
gundam ~ # grep -v '#' /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep -m1 -A5 title
title GNU/Linux 2.6.12-suspend2-r4-20050813-011259 IDE-CDRW VESAFB-TNG Cynapses
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-linux-2.6.12-suspend2-r4-20050813-011259 root=/dev/hda4 append="gentoo=nodevfs udev devfs=nomount acpi=on softlevel=network hdc=ide-cd" quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1 video=vesafb:1280x1024-32@60,ywrap,pmipal splash=silent,fadein,theme:Cynapses
initrd /fbsplash-Cynapses-1280x1024-vesafbtng

Hello All,
i will do a silly question. how can i change the background image of my grub size? (/boot/gub/splash.xpm.gz).
Because i have a 19" monitor and the image seems to be in 640x480 so it sees nasty.

Thanks in avance.

Does the latest patch work with the 2.6.13 kernel? Any issues to be aware of?

EDIT: Ugh, a bunch of "hunks" are failing, even though I got the right patch. Any ideas?
