Hi all,

i am having trouble booting an ibm rs/6000 44P-170 from any gentoo livecd. its booting fine so far, the problem is i cant get a clean video picture out of it. for now video it totaly garbage and not usable.

how do i append this "video=ofonly" to the kernel on a pSeries / rs6000 livecd ?

i guess thats my main problem for getting a clean video out of this box. or is there another reason i dont get a clean picture outof the gxt4000p card (its working fine on AIX 5)

any help is appreciated !

thanks a lot ;)

just for the record:

gxt 4000p isnt supported in linux. so for now serial console is all that works.

searching for a pci card to replace the gxt4000p now ;)

cheers

another one for the records:

i tested a few pci graphic cards in the rs/600 7044-170 now. the ATI RAGE 128 PCI MAC-Edition (16MB VRam) seems to work nice ! even in ibm´s openfirmware !
