Display problems on Geode LX netbook

Postby billaj » 2018-12-06 17:24

Hi everyone,

I am trying to use Debian 9.5 on a netbook but run into display problems during boot.

I have a netbook with the following hardware :
AMD Geode LX800 CPU
AMD CS5536 chipset/graphics
8" display with 800x480 native resolution / 1024x600 interpolated / even 1024x768 interpolated and cropped IIRC

I installed a standard i386 Debian 9.5 with xfce, no problem during installation

No problem on GRUB 2, the display is fine
No problem during the first phase of the boot either
During boot, the screen changes resolution (still on the console) and then only a 0.5" wide stripe is visible on the left hand side, which displays what it should nonetheless. The rest of the screen is black. When reaching the graphical login screen, same thing : 0.5" stripe on the left (where it should be, confirmed by checking the corner's position with the mouse), the rest is a handful of grey/white/black stripes.

I tried forcing the resolution with the gfxmode/gfxpayload but that didn't work - if I get it, the problem is probably later anyway, when switching to KMS mode ?
I also tried to disable KMS with the "nomodeset" kernel option, that didn't change a thing. Ditto for "radeon.modeset=0" and "geode.modeset=0" (not that I am sure of the actual driver name since the display problems start before I get a chance to read it in the boot messages)

What I have/don't have :
Unfortunately no external screen
I have a USB/RS232 adapter that might be of some use to get a login from my other computer (if I can configure the adapter + getty almost in the bind)
Perhaps I could boot a live ISO of another distro and have a decent chance of it working (to get a shell and mount the HD/edit files)
I have a xorg.conf from a former NetBSD installation with the proper ModeLines (is xorg.conf still used ? Not for the console anyway I suppose ?)

What can I do next ?

Are there any settings in BIOS for video/shared memory, UMA or such?

Code: Select all
# dmesg | grep "Memory usable"
[    2.909408] [drm] Memory usable by graphics device = 2048M

Is the kernel driver loaded (`lspci -k`)?

Have you installed the non-free firmware?

Nothing with "Memory usable"
Code: Select all
# dmesg | grep "Memory" :
[    0.00000] Memory: 467344K/499000K available (5736K kernel code, 644K rwdata, 1704K rodata, 720K init, 452K bss, 31656K reserved, 0K cms-reserved, 0K highmem)


No setting in the BIOS for shared video memory, but IIRC it should be 32M for the graphics.

Code: Select all
cat /proc/mem
MemTotal: 485100 kB
MemFree: 300016 kB
MemAvailable: 419808 kB
...

I'll try to find a better way to get more info out of this machine (serial terminal, SSH, cat >USB stick), for now it's cat >file, vi file, and erase characters at the beginning of the line one by one so I can read them in the first three columns...

lspci -k gives me these relevant lines :
Code: Select all
00:01.1 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Geode LX Video
Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Geode LX Video

I haven't installed the nonfree driver.

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/xse ... ideo-geode

check the bug reports also, something about ddc pins and serial console

So there is no "kernel driver in use" line, then?

Is this new hardware? You may need a newer kernel, see my guide in the HowTo section for details if this is the case.

I haven't installed the nonfree driver.

I think you need to install the non-free firmware but the ampgpu open-source driver should be preferred for supported hardware.

Remember: firmware != driver.

Okay, I managed to make my life a bit easier.
I succeeded in logging in on my old serial terminal, which of course will make further testing way more manageable than scrolling on a 3-column display.
So here is the result of "dmesg" :

It seems to select the proper framebuffer driver, the 30x80 characters size is what it should be on the screen too
Nothing looks strange to me except maybe for the amount of video memory used, still pretty sure it should be more...I will try to find another (working) bootable system and compare the RAM allocated.

For Pete's sake, just install the non-free firmware already!

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/fir ... d-graphics

https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo

If it doesn't work, you can always remove it.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.5 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc1, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0
