I have the following problem regarding Framebuffer-issues with gentoo:

When I use the Live-CD to install the OS on my laptop (which has a "built-in" resolution of 800x600 pixels), gentoo chooses to use a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. When I boot the CD by commanding "gentoo vga=xy" (dont remember the value) at the bootloader-prompt, it works - gentoo then uses the right resolution, but there is no cool background-picture anymore...

I assume (and this is my question) that this is because the live-CD provides the background-picture just in this one resolution, right? This would mean that I could fix it easily after completing the installation.

I'm just asking because I'm waiting over 30 hours now for the completation of the bootstrapping-process (!) and I CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER... *grr*

airflow

Well, I'm beginning to think that there's something going wrong... It is not a mobile phone, but a Compaq Armada Notebook with a Pentium MMX Processor at 166 Mhz.

I started the bootstrap-process on sunday at about 14:00 (CET), and now it's 1:20 in the morning... So it's already running 35,5 hours! No end in sight (just tons of lines wandering across the screen). The machine is definitely compiling something, no lock-up... :)

As I have no idea what's "normal" when installing gentoo (it's my first gentoo-experience), I accept it. I searched on this forum for what's normal for this process, but I only found numbers for much more modern CPUs.

airflow

my Pentium MMX 266MHz laptop took bloody ages, worth it though. i'd actually think that would be correct

and most mobile phones are more powerfull than our laptops :-(

ah now i see. but i still don't understand why you are installing from stage 1???? why not using a pentium optimized stage 3 installation? cause after bootstrap, to emerge the system it will last as long as bootstrap.
so i really suggest not to install from stage one with these slow computers. you won't notice any speed advantages compared to pentium optimized stage 3.

There doesn't seem to be a bootsplash-patch for the 2.4.23 kernel, is this right? The only possibility to get the bootsplash to work (with 2.4) is downgrading to 2.4.22 (i'm talking of the vanilla sources) or using the gentoo-sources. The problem with the gentoo-sources on the other hand is that 2.4.22 is the newest version there (and even this is marked as unstable).

It's now working on my machine, too, after a sleepless night.

System: - Kernel 2.6.0-test11 with patch from first post
- baselayout 1.8.6.12-r2

The problem I had was the progress bar, but it started to work after a short addition to /sbin/functions.sh, to find in
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33589. Just add the changes from the attachment, and everything should be working fine.


P.s.: I don't know if somebody posted this already, if so, well, doesn't matter ;-)

that .diff didn't work for me...

Code:
gentoo init.d # patch -p1 < functions.sh.diff
missing header for unified diff at line 3 of patch
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|--- functions.sh.orig  2003-12-08 02:31:06.000000000 +0100
|+++ functions.sh       2003-12-08 06:57:19.965855016 +0100
--------------------------
File to patch: functions.sh
patching file functions.sh
Hunk #1 FAILED at 220.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 245.
2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file functions.sh.rej


What did i do wrong?

Use gimp to resize the images to 1400x1050. I use vga=0x342 on the kernel line in grub to get 1440x1050, I found a bootsplash-1400x1050 config file and managed to edit it to show the bootsplash correctly. Admittedly I haven't got around to getting the silent version working.

My framebuffer and bootsplash never get succeeded....:(
I followed the howto, but screen is always blank (no output at all)
while booting until X starts. I am using gentoo-dev-kernel-2.6.0
Anything special for 2.6 kernel? My video card is radeon 9000.
Thanks.

I have a radeon 9000 also what I had to do was uncheck the ati radeon framebuffer support and go with the vesa framebuffer only.

also found that using the vga=0x31A works better then specifying the actual number 794.. wouldnt work for me with 794 but fired right up with 0x31A

Same here, I haven't tried the final 2.6 kernel with the radeon driver but the test version were all screwed.

Is the patch built into the 2.6-final kernel, or do I need to still patch it?

My favourite grub-splash-image is the one delivered with the Live-CD of gentoo. It is the one with the light-blue background and the white gentoo-logo. Does anyone know where to find it? Yeah, it should be on the Live-CD itself - but I can't find it there... When I boot with the Live-CD, and look in the /boot/grub directory, there is a splash.xpm.gz - it's strangely just not the right one...

Not on the vanilla 2.6 kernel which is what I am using, I believe the gentoo 2.6 kernel already has it patched though.

I discovered patching a 2.6.0 kernel breaks it. 2.6.0 has it built in anyway.

I've been upgrading to 2.6.1-rc2. I've had some problems with the framebuffer in 2.6.0, but now everything seems to work fine. everything but the splash. the problem is that /proc/splash doesn't exist! Anyone knows why?
Btw, it's the first time I'm trying bootsplash, so I might be doing something wrong.

How are you supposed to know if your kernel has the bootsplash patch?

I am running the "gentoo-dev-sources" 2.6.1-rc2 and have been trying for several days/compiles now with no luck.

EDIT:

I just went to 2.6.1-gentoo

I am getting so close to a bootsplash that I can taste it. I am getting a thin blue line about 1/8" at the top, with some lines below on a mostly black screen. This is my grub lines:

Quote:
timeout 10
color black/cyan yellow/cyan
i18n (hd0,6)/boot/grub/messages
keytable (hd0,6)/boot/us.klt
altconfigfile (hd0,6)/boot/grub/menu.once
default 1

title Mandrake
kernel (hd0,8)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda9 devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda8 splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,8)/boot/initrd.img

title Gentoo
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc real_root=/dev/hda7 devfs=mount acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda8 vesa=vesafb:800x600@16 splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd.img 800x600


BTW, I am using the grub in my Mandrake distro but it shouldn't make any diff....I don't believe.

And, here's the relevant parts of my kernel config:
