Linux for Tegra release 12 alpha 1 XServer Problems
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I just tried to get the Linux for Tegra release 12 alpha 1 on my Harmony running. Flashing, setting up the rootfs and also booting the system works well!

However, I am unable to show anything on my HDMI attached Display. The reason for this seems to be known: Login via console or ssh and start an X session. Here comes the problem: I could not get the X server to launch;( I attached the log from the X server.

Hope anybody could help to solve this.
Thanx in advance...

You're using the wrong kernel and/or kernel config. First, you need to compile the kernel with support for consoles. I think the relevant config options are
CONFIG_HW_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_VT=y
CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE=y
and maybe
CONFIG_VT_HW_CONSOLE_BINDING=y

Second, you need to use a kernel that has the CONFIG_TEGRA_DC_EXTENSIONS option. Are you using the recommended chromeos-2.6.38 kernel and config provided in the L4T release package?

Hi,

thanks for the answer! I flashed the kernel provided in the package and did not build my own. I followed the instructions provides by the pdf document in the L4T.ER1 release.

Anyway, I just re-compiled the kernel (chromeos-2.6.38 from GIT) with all config options you recommended. Still the same problem...:(
Find attached a kernel log (don't know if that helps).

By the way: there seems to be no support for the onboard ethernet controller!? At least in both kernel I've tried...

Thanx.
