Description of problem:
Tested with this kernel in rawhide, and also with a few ones from
Arjan that I have tested in the past, with all, radeonfb module simply
does not work. Means that 'modprobe radeonfb' do not give me the
framebuffer. No oopses, no errors, it seems to be loaded, but does
not do anything. Trying to unload it once crashed my system, never
tried anymore. With vanilla kernel it works well and gives me a nice
200x75 console. With Arjan's, once I compiled radeonfb builtin and it
worked, recompiled as a module, and does not.
BTW, with my 2.4, loading radeonfb after X has started make it hang,
so I do not try it after X anymore. It may be problematic as you
cannot put the modprobe line in rc.local. Should add it in the very
first lines of rc.sysinit. Oops, nonsense...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. init 1
2. modprobe radeonfb
Actual Results: nothing interesting happens
Expected Results: a framebuffer console appears
I can confirm this bug for 2.6.0-1.109 and 2.6.0-1.23,
altough I've never tested with a vanilla kernel.
I build radeonfb into the kernel and pass the following
command line parameter:
Used to work fine with earlier 2.5.x kernels.
still a problem with current kernels ?
Works for me with latest FC2 kernel. Closing.
