[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-06-13 Thread Joseph Salisbury
Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report on this issue.

However, given the number of bugs that the Kernel Team receives during
any development cycle it is impossible for us to review them all.
Therefore, we occasionally resort to using automated bots to request
further testing. This is such a request.

  With the recent release of this Ubuntu release, would like to confirm
if this bug is still present. Please test again with the newer kernel
and indicate in the bug if this issue still exists or not.

You can update to the latest development kernel by simply running the
following commands in a terminal window:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If the bug still exists, change the bug status from Incomplete to
Confirmed. If the bug no longer exists, change the bug status from
Incomplete to Fix Released.

If you want this bot to quit automatically requesting kernel tests, add
a tag named: bot-stop-nagging.

 Thank you for your help, we really do appreciate it.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-04-24 Thread Thomas Schweikle
With my laptop the problem is gone using my self compiled kernel or the latest 
one from Ubuntu. It is there using some older kernels. I had to carefully 
adjust vga=xxx to switch to the very same mode than gfxpayload set to 
1280x800@32. Took some time and playing around until it worked as expected.
After compiling in all deprecated mode-switching stuff into the kernel I didn't 
have any problems any more. Looks a lot like bugs in mode handling with the 
kernel and/or grub2. Even access restrictions may be the case, because I saw 
some non fatal warnings about write restricted warnings hushing by while the 
kernel initialized.
But the main point was to keep all deprecated mode-switching stuff in to have 
graphics work as expected -- seems there are a lot of parts within all the 
graphics code depending on these, breaking if they are not available.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-04-24 Thread Stefan Bader
As far as I remember we changed CONFIG_DRM_VMWGFX_FBCON to 'y ' now. Generally 
it is getting more complicated nowadays. Grub2 initializes some framebuffer 
graphics mode (unless console mode is enforced in /etc/default/grub), hands 
this fb over to plymouth and that hands things over to X. And somewhere between 
grub and plymouth starting, the kernel may start a gfx device specific modeset 
driver which may have its own fb driver. Many opportunities for things to go 
wrong. Btw, I think I mentioned it before but the vga= argument may be becoming 
more a problem than helping. Grub sets a gfx mode already and that is kept if 
no modeset driver is not changing it. And all newer modeset drivers use video= 
for specifying the preferred resolution. (like video=1280x800@32). But in 
theory that should not be necessary at all when the gfx mode is set ok by grub.
Anyway, I tend to declare this bug as fixed and have people with other gfx 
cards/drivers open individual bug reports. Mixing things in one single report 
will only cause confusion.

Looks like since the later updates the bug seems gone -- at least for vmwares 
graphics drivers.
On an other system running on real hardware the bug seems gone too.

I'll check later today on my laptop -- hopefully it is history there
too!

I have the same problem. On hardware.
LTS 14.04
GeForce GTX 750
If I enter grub menu choose Advanced Options For Ubuntu
Then doing nothing and normally load the system resulting ctrl+alt+F0-F6 
becomes working and I see login prompt on text consoles.
Text consoles worked before with the same ubuntu distributive and same 
hardware. The bug appeared probably after ubuntu reinstallation.

I had the same problem, but I fixed it by commenting these lines:

#  if ([ $ubuntu_recovery = 0 ] || [ x$type != xrecovery ])  \
# ([ x$GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX != x ] || [ $gfxpayload_dynamic = 1 ]); 
then
#  echogfxmode \$linux_gfx_mode | sed s/^/$submenu_indentation/
#  fi

in /etc/grub.d/10_linux.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-01-23 Thread Stefan Bader
Ok so with those there seems to be some resolution lines which get
repeated three times with the Ubuntu kernel (which is odd) and compared
to the self-compiled kernel there seems to be no action to replace the
framebuffer.

Could you try to boot the Ubuntu kernel with vmwgfx.enable_fbdev=1
added to the kernel command-line in grub and report back whether that
changes behaviour (also adding the dmesg from that run)?

2014-01-23 Thread Thomas Schweikle
With this kernel-option I'll get a console prompt, but various kernel
log lines are never prinited on screen.

Printing stops at about [   54.811735] [drm] DMA map mode: Using
physical TTM page addresses. and then starts again after a screen size
change at about [   57.317174] intel_rapl: domain core energy ctr 0:0
not working, skip.

With the self compiled kernel all lines are printed.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-01-23 Thread Stefan Bader
Not sure which errors are gone now. The line related to drm and vmwgfx are like 
the previous no blacklisting and no setting fbdev dmesg to me. Again repeating 
the resolution and FIFO line and not replacing the framebuffer.
How the user-space tools would influence the kernel boot I cannot explain. The 
dkms package that goes with it does not seem to replace anything gfx related.
So loosing a few lines while switching framebuffers is something I would not 
worry too much about. Though that should be the same with the Ubuntu and your 
own kernel... We probably should make the default enabled here.
Aside that, something else to try: most newer framebuffer drivers (especially 
those related to drm drivers) will understand something like video=800x600 
instead of vga=789 (maybe video=simplefb:800x600 but according to dmesg it is 
already using that resolution). The resolution would be set by GRUB_GFXMODE, 
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD is not used when generating the real grub config file.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-01-22 Thread Stefan Bader
Blacklisting simple-framebuffer for the Ubuntu kernel will have no
effect because it is built-in. But I am interested in the two dmesg's
without any blacklisting to compare the output. Somehow those labelled
as own kernel seem to be from a boot with the normal Ubuntu kernel, too.
Just the wrong dmesg or where were the different kernels installed?

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-01-21 Thread Thomas Schweikle
#12: yes this is true, but does not explain why this leads to blank
console using the ubuntu supplied kernel and not using one self
compiled from plain vanilla sources. I've tested since: 3.12.8,
3.13.0-rc8 and 3.13. All show the same result: working console at
expected 800x600.

The ubuntu supplied kernel does not show a working console: only black
blank screen. It does not matter if within VMware, VirtualBox or on real
hardware -- it is all the same: console working if 640x480 but not if
set to 800x600 (or even higher -- I just do not set VMs to use higher
resolutions because my monitor isn't large enough for more).

Even the working kernel show this conflict -- IMHO it isn't the cause
Ubuntu supplied kernels do not work. I've tired to compile an Ubuntu
supplied kernel, but failed miserably (I gave up, because I *can*
compile plain vanilla ones -- why should I crop with applied patches?).

Within the fb-subsystem there are differences in kernel compile options.
Ubuntu kernels use a slightly different setup then I. I'd expect to find
the source of this problem there.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1270656] Re: Ubuntu 14.04 boots to blank console

2014-01-20 Thread Stefan Bader
The apport data from comment #11 shows a virtual machine on VMWare.
Looking at the first dmesg log, there seems to be some kind of resource
conflict between the simple-framebuffer driver and vmwgfx. For testing
you could probably try to create a file like /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-
testing.conf with a line blacklist vmwgfx in it. That should give some
console (maybe not the most performant).

  Removing deprecated vga=768 from kernel commandline = doesn't boot into 
800x600, keeps 640x480
  Settings
GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=800x600
  are ignored.

  Grub boots up with 800x600, switches back to 640x480 (setting
  GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD to keep it is the same) kernel doesn't switch back
  to 800x600.

  Adding deprecated vga=768 back in:
  Grub boots up with 800x600, switches back to 640x480, kernel switches back to 
800x600, but doesn't use this console. No output at all. Keys are accepted (you 
can login, but you'll have to guess what is going on on the screen).

  Exactly the same error is found with debian. Switching to a self
  compiled kernel solves this error. Looks a lot like some necessary
  stuff for console resolution switching is missing in the debian
  -/ubuntu-kernels.
