Re: ibm server black screen console



Looking at the messages above, you have an ATI Radeon-based video card.
'lspci' should confirm that.


Thanks for your quick response ...i got the following back -

01:06.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc ES1000 (rev 02)

But do not know where to go from here.
People are working on the server right now - so can not reboot it.

my current grub line is this:

linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-amd64
root=UUID=8f86f3f1-b453-4801-ac5c-a5a86135256f ro quiet

you would like me to change it to:

linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-amd64
root=UUID=8f86f3f1-b453-4801-ac5c-a5a86135256f ro quiet
video=radeon:off

am I right ?


But I have googled the issue - it is out there - there are some
suggestions about doing stuff with Xorg.conf file - but do not
understand at all.

Can you or anyone give me some pointers -- if your earlier suggestions
does not work ?


thanks
mjh
