Console not displaying after new kernel
I just compiled the 2.6.7 kernel on my laptop. When I reboot I can't see anything. I wait until I see the harddrive LED stop flashing and I put in my username and password. Then I can type startx to get my window manager. I know I can get it to boot into one of the graphical logins, but what I am wondering is what I possibly changed in the kernel configuration that made the console go away. It looks like it is going to boot into a hi-res console, but I don't actually see any text. I did CONFIG_LOGO=y if that matters. I am not sure what else you may need, but I have the .config file here.
Thanks in advance.
