Not a big deal though.

Did you configure fbsplash appropriately in /etc/mkinitramfs.conf ?

Well, I think this is because that file effectively isn't there. The darch theme by default only supports 'standard' resolutions like 800x600, 1024x786 etc. I had to make a cfg file and scale the background images myself to get it to work for 1400x1050.

Will shfs be available again in the beyond-patchset? It has been in archck...

I'll consider entering it back in again, however it hasnt been maintained for a while, and fuse has since been merged, allowing you to use fuse' sshfs instead.

Yeah... i created my own config and scaled the images.  Like i said, it works fine after udev loads and it switches to the silent mode.  The file it quotes as missing '/etc/splash/darch/1280x800.cfg' does exist.

Sorry, didn't see your post at first.  You were right, i had configured the theme, but made a typo in my resolution setting.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction after my bonehead mistake.   big_smile

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

pacman -S testing/kernel26beyond testing/mkinitramfs

You need testing enabled in your pacman.conf. If you dont want to convert to testing, enable it at the bottom.

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Hi there
I would like to that you for the great work with archck, which i first started to use because of my ATI graphic card. Is there any plan to make an ati-fglrx-beyond package? My latest tries to compile one have failed...

http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=20118 didnt help

Has anyone got a PKGBUILD that they would be willing to share?
cheers

Hi,

Are there any benchmarks that compares the -beyond kernel and the "vanilla" one? smile

What should I expect from this kernel? smile

Kind regards // Mathias

It is working very nicely here. Great work.
(I switched to the xorg ati driver with DRI/DRM - also working great!)

Will the pkgbuild for the current ATI drivers work for Beyond?

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

mkinitramfs seems not working with a lvm2 root partition. mkinitrd works fine.

anyone got this working ?

update:
seems to be related to bug http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/4188, but i already tried 1.4-3, and there is no newer version.

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

hmm, there seems to be some bugs in new mkinitramfs (1.4-3)...

these varibales are empty on booting: $HAVE_LVM, $ROOT_DEVICE

if i set it in the init script:
HAVE_LVM="1"
ROOT_DEVICE="/dev/vg0/root"

i got arch booting :-)

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

Thanks notz for pointing that out, it should be fixed in 1.4-5 which is uploading now. Ensure you have LVM_ROOT set in your /etc/mkinitramfs.conf

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

thanks iphitus, but reiser4 detection is not working. first i thought it was my fault, because i didn't have installed reiser4progs, but also after installing that tools, it is detected as ext2.

but the same command after boot works but not in initramfs.

[root@kairo ~]# /sbin/fsck.static -NT /dev/vg0/root | awk -Ffsck. '{print $2}' | awk '{print $1}'
reiser4

it also works if i remove reiser4progs and touch /sbin/fsck.reiser4
but i don't work in initramfs....

Re: 2.6.16-Beyond1, ArchCK, mkinitramfs update.

To everyone still having problems with the ati-fglrx driver:
iphitus made/uploaded a package that you can pacman in Extra:

pacman -S ati-fglrx-beyond ati-fglrx-utils

If it's not updated in your mirror yet, it should happen very soon

Sorry, the details slipped my mind.

mkinitramfs 1.4-6

Just tried using the full initramfs image but it doesn't work either.
