I'm at hour about 15 in trying to get this to work.

Stage 3, blah blah blah, when in genkernel, The only kind of stuff I changed was disabled ISA support and then selecting my CPU. Also I selected (*) S3 graphics support with the two options below that.

When I go to boot, the first couple seconds looks fine untill it wants to go to that screen with the pinguin on the top left. I see the pinguin kinda, but everything is scattered colors and i cant make anything out. I have no idea what is going on.

helP?


------------------
Solved:

I had Enable Console Acceleration enabled, which is what caused the problem

Start reading: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-49036-highlight-bootsplash+framebuffer+howto.html
If that doesn't get you al the way, search the forums yourself first. Then ask questions about where you got stuck. Good luck!

Ok, I tried using Vesafb, and then I could specify my own mode, like vga=0x317. This seemed to work, and all of the messed up colors were gone, and the pinguin looked normal.

result!


cept,


the cursor line, just stays at the top of the pinguin (TOP? its not even suppose to be onTOP of the pinguin) and moves around a bit up there and I see nothing but black on the screen where it is suppose to be spitting out text.

Anyone encounter anything like this?

It just shimmies back and forth like its writting invisible text on top of the screen, then the pinguin moves up as if the txt was written to the screen and a scrolling action was require to fit it all in.

As in not having the extra kernel param vga=0x317? It does what it did with vesafb-tng. Colors everywhere, except for the pinguin. Like maybe Its in a display mode the LCD cannot handle or something.

Did you enable both the VESA framebuffer driver and the S3 one? I think you should not enable both.

Ok, I tried disabling VESA VGA graphics support and just enable S3 Savage Support, Enable DDC2 Support and Enable Consule Acceleration. And I get the same scattered colored screen.


I'm gonna try only having S3 Savage support without the latter two.

Maybe, that'll work..



I also have Support for framebuffer splash enabled.

turn off DDC console acceleration under the Savage support in the kernel. I'm loading the kernel with
