Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457763
System shows random ascii art instead of login screen (drm-modesetting?)
Last modified: 2008-08-05 16:00:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting kernel-2.6.27-0.186.rc0.git15.fc10.x86_64 I get a garbled ascii display instead of gdm when booting without rhgb on the cmdline (I get the same garbled ascii with rhgb on the cmdline).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot amd64 system with ati X1950pro and kernel-2.6.27-0.186.rc0.git15.fc10.x86_64
The ascii always show the same "pattern"
Note, the latest rawhide kernel (from today) does work when I remove rhgb from the cmdline, I haven't tried yet with rhgb, I'll do that tomorrow and if that works too, I'll close this.

Any luck with this Hans?
Yes and no,
Yes: the system no boots fine with rhgb parameter present on the kernel cmdline
No: plymouth still runs in ascii mode
As the no is not what this bug was about, I'm going to close this.
