2.6.1 and the graphical boot-up


Ok, I just installed the 2.6.1 kernel on my FC1 system. I have everything going. I have the sound going after reverting back to the OSS instead of ALSA. The only thing that is wrong now is that the graphical boot up that I used to have is the old-style text-only. Has anybody else had this. I had to update my NVIDIA drivers to the lastest version (5336). Can I get this back or is it just a side effect of upgrading the kernel? Anybody else had this experience?

I just recompiled the kernel again and chose the OSS modules instead of the ALSA. Then I had to go back to my modules.conf and modprobe.conf files and clean them up to reflect the way it used to be. I know that OSS is depricated, but if it works then I can't complain.

Well, you have your distro currently listed as RedHat. The graphical boot up was something new that came with Fedora. Fedora's stock kernel is of the 2.4 series and it does/can have the rhgb option already in there. If you are using regular RedHat (like 7.x - 9.0, or whatever) then you can't use that.

So, yes, it will work w/ the 2.4 Kernel, but you need Fedora Core 1 to take advantage of it.

Are your using Fedora, Neomaster? If not, then you can't use it even if you do upgrade your kernel. It is a Fedora Core specific feature. It won't work in the older Redhat releases.
