Boot messages and resolution

Postby shaurz » Fri May 04, 2012 12:42 pm

When I booted the latest SD card image I got all the regular kernel log boot messages, but after running "pacman -Syu" I only get the Raspberry Pi logo with a flashing cursor until the login prompt appears. Also I get no messages when shutting down. Was this an intentional change? Is there any way to get my boot and shutdown messages back?

Also it seemed to use the correct resolution for the monitor (1280x1024) with 4:3 aspect ratio but now it seems to use a different resolution (720p?) with 16:9 aspect ration since the top and bottom half of the screen are not used.

My messages booting or halting stayed the same after updates.
I have been wary of cache and sync before reboots.
If you eventually get to return img, try that

Think you will have to search raspberry pi forums for all the config.txt settings on video settings

I found the solution for the resolution problem here: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting

Still don't get boot messages though. I have been syncing before reboot.

It seems to be running at the right resolution now (1280x1024) but the borders of the screen are black. xdpyinfo says the resolution is 1184x928 (!)

Fixed by copying the cmdline.txt from latest image:

Code: Select all
dwc_otg.dma_enable=1 dwc_otg.dma_burst_size=256 dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 dwc_otg.dma_enable=1 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 loglevel=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 rootwait


(But I changed rootfstype to ext3 because the old image used ext3)
