Hi
I installed Gentoo 2005.0 few days ago but remove it because of framebuffer error. No matter I install Gentoo with or without framebuffer support, it gives this error;
vesafb: monitor limits: vf= 120 Hz hf= 54 KHz clk= 70 MHz
vesafb: scrolling: redraw (and then system hangs)
I tried a lot but unable to solve the problem. Then I uninstall Gentoo and go back to RedHat. Now I am using RedHat but I am missing Gentoo very much. I want to install Gentoo but I know that that problem of framebuffer will happen again. So I want to know that is there any utility which can find the correct value of vga=xxx and can also find other options of my vga, so that I have every option before re-installing Gentoo.
Thanks

I'll try to help. :wink: First of all, when you configure your kernel you might want to add the --menuconfig option to the rest of the command line and check to make sure that FB support is compiled into the kernel (found under Graphics) and that mtrr support is also compiled into the kernel (I think it defaults to that, actually).

When setting up grub.conf, try the following:
Code:

kernel (hd0,2)/boot/kernel-2.6.11.7 root=/dev/ram0 init=/boot/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr vga=0x317 hdc=ide-cd splash=verbose

...all on one line, and adjust the (hd0,2) & /dev/hda3 to suit your needs.

This is working really sweetly, thanks to some kind poster in this forum. 8)

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads in favour of Kernel doesn't boot, stops with "vesafb: scrolling: redraw".
