SubjectWeird thing happening with kernel 2.5
Date

Hello,
I wanted to check on the kernel 2.5 last day and something weird
happens with every version i have checked (2.5.60 61 and 62).

I use grub to start the kernel, he wrote the correct size etc for the
boot image and then said Loading Kernel...
after that i only show disk activity on my systems led and no messages
from the kernel.
But if i reboot under a stable kernel (2.4.20-ac2) and that i look on
the /var/log/messages i can read the previous boot process of the 2.5
kernel, the only erroneous message i show is the 'Warning: unable to
open an initial console.' followed by modules loading messages and
EXT3-FS mounting lines.
The vga=ask option work as he should but after switching mode nothing
more appears.
I have tried with and without the RADEON_FB.

best regards,
Benoit Plessis

Ps:
.config:
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
CONFIG_FB_RADEON=y

CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_PCI_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FONTS=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x8=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

Let see a sample boot sequence: (sorry for the size, i striped it a
max.)
