12:58 sugarmiceAfternoon chaps.  We've encountered an interesting issue installing a  ProLiant M370 with FAI; it works, but the console goes irreversibly blank when it tries to load the radeon framebuffer
12:59 sugarmiceIs there anything I can do to stop FAI from trying to change the console video mode?
12:59 sugarmiceAnd just stick with normal VGA?
12:59 sugarmiceI'd guessed that vga=normal on the PXE command line would do it, but it didn't...
ErKa (~keryell@m13.wifi.enstb.org) joined #fai.
13:02 MrfaiThe default FAI kernel does have fb support enabled. So maybe try a custom kernel without framebuffer support.
13:03 sugarmiceHmm - will try that if I can't find a kernel option to switch it off.  We're just about to try adding text nofb to the kernel command line
13:08 Mrfainofb sounds good
13:23 sugarmiceDidn't work though.  :-)
13:25 Mrfai:-(
13:25 sugarmiceI'm currently looking through the log on the machine to see if I can work out exactly where it happens
13:27 sugarmiceAha - it looks like 20-hwdetect.source is the culprit

14:07 sugarmiceYep, it definitely is.  Think I'm going to have to hack it not to probe for display devices on this class of machine
14:08 juri_for portability's sake, you could use dmidecode to detect that type of machine, then use that detection to logically decide not to probe radeonfb.
14:09 Mrfaisugarmice: I guess it's one of the discover calls
14:11 sugarmicejuri_:  That's what I'm doing; I have a script 15-dmidetect which emits classes based on the type of machine it finds it is on, using the Vendor and Product entries
14:11 sugarmiceifclass didn't seem to work within 20-hwdetect.source, though
14:26 sugarmiceIn a sourced class script, are the already-defined classes available somewhere?
14:32 MrfaiIMO ifclass should work, because the classes are defined in $classes
14:55 sugarmiceHmm
15:27 sugarmiceBingo.  Success.  Just added skip="radeonfb" to the discover-modprobe.conf in the NFS root
