Add patch to kernel - xorg-X11-server/video-driver to disable boot flicker

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed

Description

Please add patch to openSUSE kernel and xorg-x11-server including xorg-x11-driver-video to disable the boot flicker during start up of openSUSE.

It could remove the light-to-black transition between openSUSE bootsplash and the kdm login

User benefit:

This should finally resolve the boot-flicker without using Plymouth.

Can you please be more verbose? Which commits (upstream)?

Btw. you can also use home:jobermayr which contains development kernel modules, libdrm, Mesa, xorg-x11-driver-* and much more ...

I have been complaining about this since openSUSE 10.3. The reply was always that I had a glitch in my graphics card.
Right now. I am using the kernel provided in the stable release. However, I can always switch kernels.

I would like to offer my services for testing.

I think the requester means the kernel patch mentioned in point no 1 of this email from Egbert Eich on opensuse-factory@
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2010-04/msg00339.html

I don't think he ever sent it over opensuse-kernel@ or applied his patch to the kernel-source in factory though.

You are correct. However, I did not want to provide the link to your last comment in the openFATE Plymouth feature:
https://features.opensuse.org/305493 Otherwise this request would be a duplicate.

The patch that was originally submitted by Egbert Eich but somehow got lost when people were concentrating on the openSUSE 11.3 - July release.
