/dev/fb0 Not found when first running X


I recently finished my LFS system (6.5) and today I've been installing the X window system according to the development build of BLFS. When running the Xorg -configure command my computer freezes completely. When running the 'X' command the log complains about not being able to find /dev/fb0.


I tried to create the framebuffer node with 'mknod /dev/fb0 c 29 0', still it says it cant find /dev/fb0 even when it shows up when listing the contents of the /dev directory.

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support

 for help. 
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
In another thread it recommended adding: vesafb:mtrr,ywrap vga=0x318 to the grub menu.lst file. This didnt seem to work.


Thanks for your help!

Hi,

First 2 things that come to mind:

1) Do you want/need frame buffer support? If not: disable the support. You probably need to add/remove a line from the device section in your xorg.conf file. Can't help you with the nvidia setup (I use ati myself).

2) If you do need/want frame buffer support: Is it enabled in the kernel?

Device Drivers -> Graphics support -> Support for frame buffer devices -> <your card>

BTW: Remove the self created /dev/fb0 before changing the kernel (or at least before the first reboot after that). /dev/fb0 should be created automatically if I remember correctly.

Hope this helps.

Ah, thanks for the reply, to be honest I don't really need framebuffer support, however I haven't been able to create the Xorg.conf file. Whenever I try to create it with Xorg -configure the computer freezes.

Log from the Xorg -configure command:

Would the best thing be to re-compile the X system and see if the problem persists?

You can create one yourself if the Xorg -configure doesn't work for you (partially explained in: X Window System Components and Additional X Window System Configuration).

The above is a reference only!!!
A lot of these options are hardware specific and you do need to change those to your specs. I already left out most of the ATI specific stuff.

One of the first things you probably want to do is to get the correct driver for your graphics card (the device section in xorg.conf). This should get you going (as root): lspci. Look for the line that mentions your graphics card and then lspci -vs 08:00.0 (the 08:00.0 being the numbers in front of the graphics card line). Now you should have the busID, make, model and the amount of memory it uses.

Do take a look at the (graphics specific) kernel options, nvidia has provided some (linux) drivers if memory serves me right.

And get the specs for your monitor and graphics card, you will need them.

Hope this gets you going again.

xorg -configure will freeze if you do not have dbus working / installed. If your like me you don't run dbus or HAL you have to create one manually. There not hard to make from scratch and there are tones of examples online and alot of stuff can be omited if its not being used or you have the kernel setup the rez like mine does .

P.S. My kernel only does this because I am running GEM and KMS with intel stuff.
