New kernel blank screen
I've just compiled the new 18.104.22.168 smoothly. Yet when I reboot the new kernel the screen goes blank. After some humming from the hd I type in the login name and password (with a blank screen). Startx blam the xwindow manager with no problem and everything seems to work fine and faster then with 2.4.31. Dmesg | less from a terminal returns a blank terminal as well i.e. no echo.... Exiting from the kde desktop gives back the blank screen but halt stops the pc with no problems. I included support for usb webcam which turns on at boot and ATI radeon 128Mb. Perhaps I messed a bit with the fb configuration in menu gconfig? How could I get this sorted out? If not which option should I be aware of in the config process in kernel compiling to avoid this weird behaviour?
Thanks for any help,
