I have this issue with this green screen that comes up in my boot process.
Here is what happens:
After I compile my kernel I boot up into GRUB (in place of Lilo)
I hit the LFS selection and it proceeds normally
The normal kernel message start flying by, then about 4
second after I hit the enter key this green screen of death
pops up. I can't do anything after that but press the power button on my computer
I assume it is in the kernel startup procedure (before it gets to my inittab)
since none of the init-script messages come up (though I did choose to use BSD-init from the hin though).
I have a Nvidia Riva TNT2 16mb graphics card. I don't have vga= in my kernel parameters.
Right now I am trying to compile the kernel without optimizations hoping that will work. I'll tell ya if it does.
Re: Green Screen
This is what I did
...I re-compiled Red-hat's 7.2 kernel (2.4.9-13 I think) with reiserfs support built-in (since that is what I made my /). Then, I copied it to the LFS system and it worked. I assume it is a kernel problem related either to how I compiled it (I'm willing to bet that was it), or there is something wrong with the kernel (i.e. a bug, but I doubt that).
I'm gonna continue testing the kernel until I get it right.
Thanks for your support with LFS Beekmans, I appreciate it.
