No Login Prompt On Ultra 10 Using atyfb
I'm returning to this after a few years in the wilderness playing
with NetBSD and have a wee problemo with my Ultra10.
I'm having issues getting the atyfb driver working for the onboard
2MB Mach64 framebuffer in the machine. At first the machine would
display nothing at all after loading the kernel (OBP displayed fine).
Now I've got the atyfb drivers compiled into the kernel properly and
the display comes up with all the boot information and gets as far as
telling me that it's loaded the cron daemon and stops, never giving
me a login prompt. Leaving it for 10 minutes blanks the screen and
hitting a key brings the display back and <alt>-<Fx> combinations
appear to switch to blank virtual consoles. Also, I can login to the
machine quite happily via SSH. I've also got
in my silo.conf.
The machine had a Creator3D card in it as well which I took out to
try and simplify matters to get this working. I'm not too bothered
about getting the Creator3D working as a) I don't have a sun-to-vga
convertor so I'd be stuck using my old 19" Sun CRT that draws more
power than the rest of my house put together and b) the Mach64's VGA
output drives my TFT quite happily and I've no intention of running X
on this at the moment.
I'll hold off posting my entire kernel config file unless someone
asks for it as it's quite large, obviously.
Thanks in advance for any help.
