Kernel Problems (sound/network) FBuffer *FIXED*


First off, I followed the instructions of this thread, although I may have missed something. Everything seemed to work out without a problem until a I booted into the new kernel. When it starts, its kinda of hard to explain, but the top half of my screen is a bunch of penguins although they are all cut in pieces diagonally and strewn across the screen and the 'text' is just a bunch of white lines all over the place (they aren't symbols, just a bunch of lines). Looks odd, but it looks like its running through the basic startup stuff. I can actually log in and view files and everything (although all the text, like I said, is just a bunch of lines) but I can login, cd to /mp3 and when I do ls, the colors show that the files are audio files (I have audio files highlighted yellow on my computer). So I'm just having problems with the framebuffer, I think. Could it have anything to do with AGPGART? I didn't think that would cause problems until I installed the nVidia drivers (I couldn't find the AGPGART part in the kernel config, I did gconfig, although that shouldn't make a difference). Any ideas?

try a different vga mode in /etc/lilo.conf. AGPGART shouldn't matter at that stage

You have to compile support only for VESA framebuffer. Remove all other framebuffers (also for NVIDIA) and it will be OK. I experienced similiar problem and that helped me.

Well unfortunately no. I have all the APCI enabled and the sound is exactly as it has been. I mean, I don't have a laptop, but I have the exact same audio configuration as you do. I find it strange, although I could be doing something wrong as far as setting things up are concerned. I'd like to give OSS a try, but it doesn't have anything specific for my card, I don't mind that it's deprecated, I'd just like my sound to work perfectly . Perhaps I'll just try it without anything of the sort, I mean, I'm on a desktop so it shouldn't matter should it? Unfortunately, I don't have it working perfectly, but it's too early to say just yet. Also, my network isn't working anymore. Normally I would see messages about DHCP, but I don't see any of that. Anyone have similar problems? And one more thing (wow too many questions in one thread >_<) I downloaded the latest nVidia drivers pre-patched by minion.de, if I install those, will I still be able to get into X on my old Kernel? Or should I wait until everything else (internet, sound) is in order before I install the new drivers? Thanks for the help everyone.
