Thread: Broken Video Display

  1. #1

    Broken Video Display

    Hi,

    I have created a couple of "Applications" with Studio and have a problem with the video. The initial "SuseStudio" splash screen and the "Loading Linux Kernel" box is displayed correctly but then the video get corrupted (It looks like a snow storm At boot time I have changed the display to 1024x768 and 800x600 with no improvement. Anyway, if I boot with "Fail Safe" and then at the # prompt I run "startx" the video display comes up correctly.

    Any ideas how to kick the video into place before creating the .iso file ....

    Regards
    John

    Hi,

    I did this stuff which seemed to fix the problem ....

    From the prompt I ran "sax2 -r -m 0=vesa"
    and then ran "cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install"
    then rebooted the device and all is good again.

    I hope this helps someone..

    Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I am not a SuSE Studio user.

    Still, with respect, if one wishes to force the use of the 'vesa'
    driver, which is what you have done with your use of the sax2 command
    and copying xorg.conf to xorg.conf.install, would not a cleaner way be
    to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf file, and change it to:

    Code:
    --------------------

    # Having multiple "Device" sections is known to be problematic. Make
    # sure you don't have in use another one laying around e.g. in another
    # xorg.conf.d file or even a generic xorg.conf file. More details can
    # be found in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32430.
    #
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Default Device"
    #
    # #Driver "radeon"
    Driver "vesa"
    #
    # ## Required magic for radeon/radeonhd drivers; output name
    # ## (here: "DVI-0") can be figured out via 'xrandr -q'
    # #Option "monitor-DVI-0" "Default Monitor"
    #
    EndSection

    --------------------


    Also, I note that one's PC typically takes a performance 'hit' using the
    vesa driver so that may not be the optimal solution.

    If you provide information on your graphic card it may be possible for
    one of our forum graphic gurus to advise a better way to get rid of the
    corrupted video and still keep a superior performance graphic driver.

    .... but glad to read you made progress with the vesa driver.

    Re: Broken Video Display

    Hey, thanks for your input.

    The folder and file you suggest I change does not exist (/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf) Should I create this manually?

    The directory is not /xorg.conf.d, but rather it is
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d.

    Assuming that you just abbreviated your typing, and you did look for the
    correct directory location, then my answer would be no. I don't think
    you should.

    This suggests to me that my lack of SuSE Studio knowledge may be leading
    to an inappropriate suggestion on my part.

    Nominally every installed recent openSUSE version will have an
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory with an
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf file. I do not know enough about
    SuSE Studio to understand why it does not have such.

    Re: Broken Video Display

    Hi,

    I checked again but no such folder or file. I built this application in SuSE Studio from a "Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 11sp3" which may account for the missing files. Anyway the video is working so I am sort of happy. Thanks for your input.

    Regards
    John

    Please try http://forums.suse.com , these are the openSUSE forums. SUSE
    is different, the people in their forums will be better equipped to help
    you

    Re: Broken Video Display

    It would seem that the SuSE Studio forum is linked to both OpenSuSE and Suse so it does not matter where I post this ......
