 matroxfb blank screen
Hello,

I'm trying to use matroxfb just to see a logo at boot time :) But I'm
sorry y couldn't managed to do so and thought I need kernel gurus opinions.

I'm trying 2.4.19 gentoo 1.4 rc2 kernel on a p3 450 512mb ram HP vectra
using a mga200 on board. When the system boots i get normal  video.
After the screen fulls and tries to switch fb mod to  put the shiny logo
( :) ) the video signal goes (I see yellow no signal led lit on the
monitor). I've tried many of video=matrox:vesa:... kernel parameters.
Sometimes i get "refresh rate out of range" and sometimes "no signal".

The thing thats strange (and which means I am doing something wrong) is
with movix distro I can watch movies on the same pc.

Any opions?

(And I am new to this list if this is the wrong place to ask I'm sorry)

I ve compiled my  kernel with the following config.

Am I doing something wrong?

Try 2.4.21-preHighest-acGreatest (or 2.4.21-preHighest and enable all

was still wrong in Marcelo's tree).

Problem is that your onboard G200 uses 14.318MHz XTAL, while all other
G200's use 27.000MHz, so you are getting 32Hz vertical refresh instead
of 60Hz... As a temporary solution booting with
'video=matrox:vesa:....,fv:113' could give you picture, but accelerator
will run at 53% of its nominal speed and so on.

Or you can replace 27000 with 14318 in drivers/video/matrox/matroxfb_DAC1064.c
and rebuild your kernel. But upgrading to latest Alan's 2.4.x is preferred
solution.

P.S.: Of course this assumes that your G200 has connected BIOS to it.
If you'll get "matroxfb: Your Matrox device does not have BIOS" or
"matroxfb: BIOS on your Matrox device does not contain powerup info",
you are lost and I'll have to find another solution for Vectra owners.
