I still get a kernel crash using vesafb:tng. Here is part of the trace that I can see.

Same here. I have yet to get any kernel with vesafb-tng to boot on my machine. I get the same error msg, but I think mine is .... vesafb[34]... but I could be wrong.
Removing bootsplash,initrd,video=*** have no effect on this error :(
Just out of curiosity, what video card are you running?
I'm using an SIS (650 I believe), with 64MB used for video mem.
(P4 non-hyperthreaded if it makes a difference)

Edit: the error above is what I was getting before I reconfigured. I think the main things I changed were turning off SMP since I only had one processor, and changing the processor from Pentium 4 to pentium M (since it has a pentium M I don't know why all my past kernels have been configured to pentium 4 0o )

vesafb seems to be failing. When I set it up originally I wasn't able to boot my computer, vesafb gave stack and call traces. I deleted the config and configured it from the defaults, booted the second time around. My kernel command line looks like:
Quote:
root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024@62 splash=verbose initrd=/boot/initrd-1280x1024

the lines from vesafb loading in dmesg look like:

@SATA problems:
there is a new option in mm:
Device Drivers: ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support: Support for SATA (deprecated...) etc etc.
If you don't enable this, SATA won't work with normal ATA drivers (not SCSI). Happened to me on my boot drive (-_-)

the thing to add to your config would be:
Code:
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_SATA: y


cheers.

I can't get bootsplash to run either. It doesn't even try. I even did rc-update add bootsplash default and it shows, but it doesn't even try to start. Below is my dmesg for vesafb and below that my grub.conf.

On a good note, I finally got / on reiser4!!!!

for all those with:

1 segmentation faults
2 sensors problems

1. This has been a running theme since mm4 was brought out.

Some ppl get seg faults with the same setup and other ppl don't. we are not sure why. It happens (we also don't know of a fix).

2. Reverse the bk-acpi.patch, this will fix the sensor problem, again, this has been happening since mm4 when it was put in the mm patch set.

HTH :D

for bootsplash to work try to explicitly state 16 bit color depth so that your kernel command line looks like

How can I patch this kernel to use the StairCase scheduler? Staircase gives me much better results than Nick's.

Anyone?

Like we said to you yesterday in #love-sources, you need to reverse nick's scheduler (fix the rejects) and then apply the staircase patch from con (fix the many many many rejects).

Not an easy task I'm afraid.

just:

make oldconfig is ugly.

Just do make clean, then cp the .config to the dir, and say make menuconfig.

It will use the default values of the already present .config

A quick question with love 7:

I can get bootsplash to work but when I log in as any user (either to text or graphics) the bootsplash screen refreshes itself (is that the right term?) and the system hangs

I am left looking at a lovely bootsplash theme but a non functioning screen...
Disabling bootsplash the system works perfectly (and very quick :) )

So is there a solution or do I give up on bootstrap for the time being ?

PostPosted: Thu Jul 08, 2004 9:16 am    Post subject: vesa-tng && bootsplash Reply with quote

There seems to be many people having trouble setting up new vesa patch and/or getting bootsplash to work. There has been a lot of coverage about this subjects in the forums already. The best I can do is to point out to the right directions

vesa-tng thread:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=71570

bootsplash setup thread:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=49036
warning: it has some info relating to old vesa setup, so be sure to use vesa related setup as in previous thread

example lilo.conf would be:
image="/boot/bzImage"
root="/dev/hda2"
label="2.6.7-love-7"
read-only # read-only for checking
append="video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr splash=silent"
initrd=/boot/initrd-1024x768

INSTEAD OF: (OLD WAY)
image="/boot/bzImage"
vga=0x317
root="/dev/hda2"
label="2.6.7"
read-only # read-only for checking
append="video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr splash=silent"
initrd=/boot/initrd-1024x768

vram:16 -- this option limits amount of memory video card would use for framebuffer to 16 MB, old patch use to do it by default, this one may create problems if this is not set
mtrr -- speeds up graphics drawing, always use on desktop, very recomended
ywrap -- speeds up scrolling, use this or "ypan" (slower). I have Riva TNT 2 which is quite old this days and faster method works for me without the glich, so I recomend it as well

My personal advice would be to try to set up each one by one. May take little more time that way, but eventually would lead to success.

GOOD LUCK ALL 8)

yep, it also happens with the Latest Stardust Themes (haven't testet any other release)

here is my config

http://home.arcor.de/collinso/config

Edit:

here is the exactly Error:
Quote:

nForce2 SMBus 0000:00:01.1: Error probing SMB1.

Hmm i didn't even notice, sinse I dont even remeber when is last time I started gkrellm to see my sensors readings, but yes there is a problem and it would be great to fix it. It works, shows all the readings, but takes up 99% of CPU time...
I would reverse bk-acpi.patch, but my question is why it breaks bootsplash :?: I do not really fell as trying to fix something, breaking something else.


Other issue is segfaulting of some apps. Cause of that is using new nvidia-driver. Examples are mplayer, xine, xmms, wine (if using opengl).

EDIT : To solve problem with new nvidia-driver all that is nessesery is to do cp /usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.1.0.6106 /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib

No restart of X serwer, or reloading of drivers is nessesery

P.S. New java form Sun works great :) jdk-1_5_0-beta3-bin-b57-linux-i586-23_jun_2004.bin
if someone needs I can provide them with an ebuild for it

But I don't get more than 60Hz using this line:

When bootsplash is initialized it is resetting the vesafb so you're getting the same resolution and color depth but reverting to the default refresh rate for your card :(

This doesn't happen with 2.6.7 + vesafb-tng + bootsplash
but it does happen with 2.6.7-mm6 + vesafb-tng + bootsplash

I've been tearing my hair out for hours trying to track the problem. If anyone has a clue of precisely which of the framebuffer changes in mm6 is responsible please let me know.
