During the booting process, everything is dandy. The console is correct at the resolution I wanted it to be. But after I start xorg, the CLI console switches it's resolution from 1280x1024 to something much lower. And the screen gets messed up as well. You can no longer see any text, and it's all different colors.

I can't post a screenshot because fbgrab captured what it should be (1280x1024 console), it's like my moniter catching a different signal from the computer rather than the real signal the computer is sending out.

Anyone else had this problem, and know how to solve it?

ALSO, anyone would happen to know why I am getting a font error when I boot the system with fbsplash? The error is:

putfont: PIO_FONT: Invalid argument


Thanks in advanced.

I noticed some similar effects when updating from kernel gentoo-sources-2.6.10-r6 to gentoo-sources-2.6.11-r4. It happens now sometimes that the monitor cannot correctly display the text screen when I switch from X to a virtual console (with ctrl-alt-F1). It seems like I see the same screen two times, one above the other.

However, the signal seems to be more or less correct. If I switch off my monitor and then back on again it displays the screen correctly.

When I tried to go back to gentoo-sources-2.6.10-r6 the problem did no longer occur. So I guess it has to do with the new kernel.

I am using media-gfx/splashutils-0.9.1.

I think it happened to me even on 2.6.10-gentoo-r6. *shrugs* But I'll try it anyway.

Edit: Nope, changing kernels did not solve the problem.
