You have passed an undefined mode number.
OK.. I know this topic has been brought up several times in this forum but despite my efforts i cant seem to get my framebuffering to stay working.
I am using a Gateway Solo PII 333mhz, 128mb, Trident video, Slack9, default 2.4.20 kernel and the 2.4.21 kernel.
Problem seems to go like this:
-chose for lilo to boot 1024x768x64k
-install lilo to MBR
-everything boots/runs pefect including framebuffering
-after about 1 or 2 reboots, it gives me the You have passed an undefined mode number error and remains fucked up no matter what i do
I have tried this several times, reformatting each time as i go. I also have tried the newer kernel and that gives me the same crap
I have had a little luck however, everynow and then it DOES work (for some odd fucking reason) but it will promplty go back to not working once i reboot. X doesnt work either in the text mode.
I have tried using hex, i have tried vga=scan , all , normal , etc. nothing works. However the first time i tried putting the hex it, it did work. But again, only for one boot. I have all the stuff enabled in Console Drivers.
my lilo.conf currently looks like this: (and i get the error)
image = /boot/bzImage
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux
the only thing that gives me something other than the error message when i boot, is using a 800x600 resolution, in which case it makes my screen flash blue lines. Not exactly working either ...
Anywho, any help would be much appriciated.
Just a little note, now i cannot the other kernel to boot, it gives me the flashing blue lines.
