-image.2.6.32...686 to 3.2.0-4...486 on upgrade-->vsync, hsync, refresh screwed...


On Advantech PCM-9387, -9587, & -9582, Pentium M models, upon upgrade from the stock kernel to this iteration of 3.2, the system boots grub fine, then preliminary four or five lines if some usb device is plugged in, at the new term or when i915 takes over-->>>>looses sync. I can log in blindly and initiate a reboot or startx. Furthermore, this has also happened with 2.6.39-bpo. I decided to remove the repository and wait for a more streamlined approach. This also happens in Debian proper.

At startx-->>
What is so odd, is that in trying to get the monitor to work, I switched it with a nearby old school one. It synced better but not perfect. I was running XFCE or something at the time (like in gparted) and could change the refresh to 75Hz. Voila! Hey, but this sux! I need the new kernel to get some of the new features of the wireless stuff. Tried to get the gui to remember the settings as to make the installs at least functional to something could be found.

Am I missing something?


I'm already about to roll my own 686-non-pae kernel in schroot for these little debian and mint boxes with some help after this!

Done from 64-bit lmde gnome3 with the XFCE removed and replaced with gnome-session-fallback or something like that plus some more gadgets. Now let's get the little work horses rollin.

Thanks.

Please help.

This link is very close to the behavior:

How did you get this kernel going? Did you compile it?

Regards

apt-get install linux-image 3.2.0-4...

after an apt-update && apt-get upgrade

Again, booting from the old kernel, no problem.

With the 3.2 kernel, after the initial 4 or 5 lines of code, maybe udev populating,
the screen clears going to a higher resolition term but is corrupted.

Also, these motherboards are like laptops, having an lcd output as well as coventional vga crt output.

If I switch midway to a 4:3 old school monitor, it gets better and I can use the tool to tailor the resolution and refresh rate after a partially blind login and startx.

Nothing fancy. If it installs and runs correctly, I'll use its config and just change the processor parameters for a general 686 non-pae up to 3gb memory kernel.

Thanks for responding.

P.S. would this be better n debian forum or some kernel or software sub-forum?

Would be better to recompile the kernel, that way you can set for just for the hardware your computer have, generic kernels have lots of things that you don't need, because of that its is slower than custom kernel. Give it a shot on kernel compilation.
