Knrl 2.6.5 black boot screen - can log in
 
I have just compiled kernel 2.6.5 - my first kernel compile. Everything seems to be in order, except, after the LiLo screen, Slackware boots with a completely black screen. After a while, I can log in and start KDE with startx.

How can I get my console back? I am using Slackware 9.1 with swaret upgraded to slackware-current. I have a Sapphire Radeon 9600.

Cheers,

Beard

The following was copied verbatim from a post by jymbo somewhere on a
linuxquestions.org forum (maybe this one):

1.) To prevent the "blank screen" that most new 2.6 kernel users often get on their first build, make sure that the following options are enabled:

# Graphics support
#
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
#
# Console display driver support
#
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_PCI_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

#
# Logo configuration
#
CONFIG_LOGO=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_MONO=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_VGA16=y
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_CLUT224=y
