Boot stops writing half way but boots ok


Hi.
I have a problem with my initial booting sequense. I have recently compiled a new kernel 2.6.4, and everything seems fine. It all works. However, every time i boot, it gets to a point where it writes:

..................
Linux Plug and Play Support v0.97 (c) Adam Belay
Linux Kernel Card Services
options: [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver hub
PCI: Probing PCI hardware
PCI: Probing PCI hardware (bus 00)
PCI: Using IRQ router PIIX/ICH [8086/7110] at 0000:00:07.0
tridentfb: Trident framebuffer 0.7.8-NEWAPI initializing
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 0000:01:00.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:02.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:06.0
tridentfb: framebuffer size = 4096 Kb

then it stops writing, but keeps loading. After 30 sek, it gets to gnome login screen, and i can continue using linux. Im running Debian dist.

Any idea, what this bug is?
When I run dmesg, no errors are found, so i dont know what the cause is.

"tridentfb: framebuffer size = 4096 Kb"

You probably have frame buffers set up wrong. During the period when boot is using framebuffers nothing seems to actually be printing on your screen.

"where do I maka changes?"

When you configure your kernel source there is a section with framebuffer parameters.
