Strange. I get the same messages during boot, I've been getting them for over six months now, across numerous kernel upgrades and different versions of splashutils.
Thing is, fbsplash still works perfectly for me in spite of these messages.

I had the font error messages too for a brief period of time, but I don't know why they disappeared.
I think it might have something to do with splashutils' use flags.

I've never experienced any kind of screen corruption with this.

You could always revert to an older version of splashutils, but I think the 2.6.12 kernels require the latest version.

I think with the new version you need to add "quiet" to the grub.conf entry, and/or compile splashutils with the kdgraphics use flag set in order to suppress these messages.

my grub config looks like this:

Code:
kernel /kerne04 quit root=/dev/hda4 video=vesafb-tng:1400x1050-32@70,mtrrmywrap splash=silent,theme:emergence CONSOLE=/dev/tty1
initrd (hd0,1)/emergence_splash


so far i can tell its right..

how do i compile splashutils whit kdegraphics use flag?

Hi.

You seem to have two typos in the kernel line quit and mtrrmywrap. I think it should be
Code:
kernel /kerne04 root=/dev/hda4 video=vesafb-tng:1400x1050-32@70,mtrr:ywrap splash=silent,theme:emergence CONSOLE=/dev/tty1
initrd (hd0,1)/emergence_splash

I could be wrong, but I think you should just be using video=vesafb:1400-etc rather than video=vesafb-tng, regardless of which you are actually using (remember you can only enable one or the other in the kernel anyway).
Also, until you get it working, I would advise reducing the refresh rate to 60 Hz instead of 70.

If by vesafb you mean vesafb-tng, I think it'll use whatever resolution you tell it to (within reason).
I use it on my notebook with a 1400 x 1050 screen, and never had any trouble with this resolution.

alright i will try to explain a bit better what i mean.

in my kernel i have chosen vesafb-tng, and set my resolution there.

Now, when i make my grub file, dont i have to do vesafb-tng there also, caus i put that in my kernel?
or can i do vesafb:1400x1050 even thought its vesafb-tng in my kernel?

Exactly!
Vesafb-tng is really a new version of (or even a replacement for) vesa.
You use the video=vesafb: with the tng version.
In fact, I've never seen video=vesafb-tng: used anywhere, so it is certainly not needed, and may be what is causing your problems.
Did you read about using "video=vesafb-tng:" elsewhere, or did you come up with it yourself?

StarF,

you have a simple problem.
Code:
radeonfb (0000:01:00.0): ATI Radeon NP
vesafb: ATI Technologies Inc., P11 , 01.00 (OEM: ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600 )

You have enabled both radeonfb and vesafb-tng. You can't do that. Reconfigure your kernel, remove the support for radeonfb, recompile, copy and try again.

StarF,

from the previous output I'm led to believe that you have both radeonfb and vesafb enabled. You can check by doing
Code:
/home> grep RADEON /usr/src/linux/.config
CONFIG_DRM_RADEON=m
# CONFIG_FB_RADEON_OLD is not set
# CONFIG_FB_RADEON is not set
/home>

Well,

in that case, where does this come from?
Code:
radeonfb (0000:01:00.0): ATI Radeon NP
