problem with 2.6.0 kernel


I just compiled kernel 2.6.0 on a Slackware 9.1 box and I have some problems. First of all how could I compile the kernel with framebuffer support: I selected console framebuffer in the configuration file but when I boot I see just a black screen and nothing else(in old 2.4.22 kernel it works fine). My lilo.conf looks like that:
Code:
boot="/dev/hda"
lba32
prompt
vga=792
default="Windows"
timeout="50"
root=/dev/hda5

image=/boot/bzImage-2.6.0
	label="Linux(2.6.0)"
	append = "video=atyfb:mode:1024x768,font:SUN12x22"
	root=/dev/hda5
	read-only

image=/boot/vmlinuz
	label="Linux"
	append = "video=atyfb:mode:800x600-16@75,font:SUN12x22"
	root=/dev/hda5
	read-only

other=/dev/hda1
	label="Windows"
My second problem is that I have a ATI Radeon 7000 video card and it works terrible in X (low refresh rate). How can I fix that?
And the last problem is that I have no sond with this new kernel. What is wrong with it?

Thanks!

In 2.6 things are handled a little differently.

For sound, you can use alsa and OSS emulation that you can compile in the kernel or as modules when you are doing menuconfig.

To correct the refresh rates I have found it alot easier to manually edit your XF86Config file in /etc/X11 to include the refresh rates from your monitor.

*NOTE: asking "what is wrong with it?" and saying "I have no sound" is very vague, to say the least. If you gave your sound card and the way you had sound setup in your prior kernel we could, most likely, give much better help.

For now, comment out the

vga=792

and put just below it

vga=normal

and comment out the append section for your 2.6

Then, take a look in the General forum - there's a sticky thread about kernel compiling and also, check out the sticky thread on 2.6.0 kernel in the Distributions -> Slackware.

The info there is not specific to Slackware and there is some info on the blank screen issue.
