Boot logo but no text?

Hi everyone,

I've followed the 2.6 kernel upgrade thread and upgraded the kernel with no problems. However my boot logo is a little odd. The screen is definetly in the res I want, with a decent level of colours, but only the debian logo shows - no text - which is obviously a pain.

I *did* compile in VGA 8x8 font and VGA 8x16 font and have tried vesa and vesafb. Both give me the debian logo but no text.

I'm not sure where to head next with this one, any ideas?

I my experience, I have always either gotten all or nothing. I have never seen the boot logo appear with no text. The fact that you see the boot logo seems to indicate that the frambuffer is working.

That's why I wasn't sure where to start from!
