Booting Haiku R1/alpha2 with Radeon 9800 drops you in kernel debug land

I have a problem with running haiku on my older computer. It is equpped with a Radeon 9800 graphics card connected to a AGP 4x bus. I read here that radeon 9800 should work well with haiku, but it does not for me. When booting i can see the graphical boot splash in high res, but directly afterwards, the system drops me to kernel debug land, and i can't use my ps/2 keyboard, so I guess something hangs. However, I see a traceback to the file /boot/system/add-ons/accelerants/radeon.accelerant.

Holding shift while booting and selecting fail safe vesa graphic works, but it is really slow and I have to set these parameters each boot.

I don't know if there is anything to find in my syslog when I have booted with vesa graphic, but I'll include it anyway.

had a look at the syslog.

there's nothing obvious. Can u take a photo of the stack trace ("sc" i think from the debugger).

There is a lot of noise in the log about MTRR setup, and USB hardware issues, so I wouldn't be surprised if either two were responsible.

Have you tried booting without safe mode but selecting a vesa mode? try setting a low resolution.

try also disabling USB from the bios config if you can just to test it's not a USB issue.

First of all, mr3d please attach at least the KDL output you get -- probably some panic message, ideally with stack trace.

@euan, the last radeon specific output is:

5589	KERN: Radeon - Radeon_MapDevice: device: 010000
5590	KERN: Radeon - Radeon_MapDevice: old PCI command state: 0x00000087

5621	KERN: loaded driver /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/graphics/radeon

I.e. it seems everything is unmapped (though device is still published?). And following that output we get:

5623	KERN: vesa: init_hardware()
5624	KERN: vesa: init_driver()
5625	KERN: vesa: publish_devices()
5626	KERN: vesa: find_device()

5787	KERN: vesa: vbe_set_mode(): BIOS returned 0x014f
5788	KERN: vesa: vesa_set_display_mode(): cannot set mode
5812	KERN: vesa: vbe_set_mode(): BIOS returned 0x014f
5813	KERN: vesa: vesa_set_display_mode(): cannot set mode

Looks like VESA is being used and something doesn't work correctly.
