Hi peeps.

I'm having a weird problem with my new (to me) s754 athalon. it boots up to modules, then goes to this. this box is meant to be headless, so i wouldn't care about video, except I can't ping the box. I don't get the flashing keyboard leds of a kernel panic, but with the messed up output i can't tell if I'm at a prompt or what.

I used system rescue cd to install, stage was hardened-nomultilib. grub-static is boot loader, with baselayout 2.0 and kernel is zen stable 2.3.35.

I'm currently sshed into live system last entry into /var/log/kernel/current is:

/etc/conf.d/modules:
Code:

Due to it's large size I won't post /usr/src/linux/.config, but can grep for any sting requested.

this box is my fileserver, so it being down has crippled my entire network. any assistance in getting it to complet the boot cycle will be greatly appreciated.

well, I tried commenting out all modules except net. still did it. so I used the "interactive" feature of the startup script manager, and it looks like udev is the problem. no solution yet, but at least something to search for.

Appending 'nofb' to the grub line has solved the problem. I've been advised that indicates my in kernel framebuffer is at fault.
