#1975 closed bug (fixed)

Boot splash doesn't show with intel i865 and CRT

Description

Ever since the new boot splash was added, my Dell Optiplex GX270 no longer shows a boot splash using a Cornerstone Color 50/115 21" CRT.

The video chip on the GX270 is an integrated Intel 82865G

Tested with hrev24615 (serial log attached)

If I manually specify a video mode using the boot menu, it shows up just fine.

In hrev24615 it appears to be choosing 1600x1200x8bpp - will test hrev24608 next.

hrev24608 with TRACE_VIDEO on

Went back to hrev24608 (and also made sure to revert video.cpp) - then re-enabled TRACE_VIDEO and re-tested.

Still apparently chooses 1600x1200x8bpp in the old rev.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Thanks! TRACE_VIDEO was very helpful indeed: what happens is the following:

  • EDID information could not be read for your monitor.
  • unlike most (all?) other cards I know, the VESA resolution table is ordered differently than usual. This broke the code that choose the right standard mode.

In hrev24619 I've changed the way this mode is found.

Confirmed fixed - now chooses 1024x768x32bpp in hrev24660
