kernel-2.6.0-test7 boot problems


I compiled kernel-2.6.0-test7 but when I boot it I get some errors. Please help me with solving these.
1. When I start linux with vga=791, I get a black screen (the screen is not as black as normal, its when you show a black image at full-screen ). Did work in 2.4.22.
2. After dhcpd messages, the boot pauses some time. Did work in 2.4.22.
3. I get some dhcpd messages, I don't remember them from SuSE. Did have these in 2.4.22.
4. The system tries to load ALSA-OSS compatibility although I disabled it. Didn't have ALSA in 2.4.22.
5. nmbd doesn't work. Didn't work in 2.4.22.

My syslog:

I have two comments on your problems:

Linus recommended that you not start with your 2.4.x config file when configuring a 2.6.0 kernel. You should start with the default 2.6.0 configuration and type every setting in by hand. This could be why the configuration seems to be different than what you specified.

The black screen with vga=791 may be a problem with the way that you have configured frame buffers.

I didn't start with my 2.6.0 config.

So how should I configure it then?

"So how should I configure it then?"

Here is how I configured frame buffer support in 2.4.22.

Console drivers
Support for frame buffer devices: y
VESA VGA graphics console: y
Advanced low level driver options: y
8 bpp packed pixels support: y
16 bpp packed pixels support: y
24 bpp packed pixels support: y
32 bpp packed pixels support: y

I think it didn't work because I compiled console framebuffer support as a module :/.

i use test7 but am having some trouble getting my hd mp3 player mounted, even after editing modules.conf and modprobe.conf so I switch between test7 and 2.4.20. Test7 is absolutely wonderful otherwise.

In my rc.alsa file is:
# A function to load the ALSA OSS compat modules:
load_alsa_oss_modules() {
echo "Loading OSS compatibility modules for ALSA."
modprobe snd-pcm-oss
modprobe snd-mixer-oss
}

As this gives the error, I think this is an old method. How can I get it working with 2.6.0-test8?
