Subject: [gentoo-user] kernel with DRM = blank screen
Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2013 08:18:37
1 Hi,
3 I have an old HP 625 laptop with an ATI RS880 HDMI Audio [Radeon HD
4 4200 Series]
5 chip on board.
7 The xf86-video-ati driver needs DRM (direct rendering support) in the
8 kernel.
9 Unfortunately, if (and only if) I enable DRM (built in or as module) in
10 a recent kernel
11 like gentoo-sources-3.10.9, the kernel freezes with a blank screen
12 during boot, i.e.
13 long before xorg-server is started (only by hand in my case).
15 So, what can I try to fix this (some IOAPIC switches on the boot
16 command line)?
18 Many thanks for a hint,
19 Helmut
