Title: Display output only in the left top corner ?
Post by: halma on May 23, 2016, 09:33:28 AM
Hi,

i am asking me why the output of TC (6.x x64) is only in the upper left top corner, i mean the screen is not fully (fullscreen) used for displaying output as you can see on the screenshot.
What can i do to use the whole Display ?

Thanks

How are you booting - with legacy bios or uefi?

What graphics hardware do you have?

Are you loading either of the Xfbdev or Xorg-7.7 extensions?

Hi Juanito,

i have an legacy bios and i just using the bootpromp after the boot is done, (console), no X-Server started after boot is done,

and this is how i boot:

cat extlinux.conf
DEFAULT xen3
PROMPT 1
TIMEOUT 1

Code: [Select]
LABEL xen3
MENU LABEL xen3
KERNEL mboot.c32
#APPEND /tce/boot/xen-4.7-unstable.gz --- /tce/boot/vmlinuz64 waitusb=5:root=$BLKID tce=$BLKID nodhcp noutc showapps syslog tz=Europe/Berlin host=xenbox kmap=de --- /tce/boot/corepure64.gz
APPEND /tce/boot/$(basename $BUILDDIR/fs_mount/tce/boot/xen*) --- /tce/boot/$(basename $BUILDDIR/fs_mount/tce/boot/vmlinu*) waitusb=5 root=$BLKID tce=$BLKID nodhcp noutc showapps syslog tz=Europe/Berlin host=xenbox kmap=de pause --- /tce/boot/$(basename $BUILDDIR/fs_mount/tce/boot/corepur*)
EOF

even i can use the comment bootline too, to boot up

Thanks

sorry my mistake, xen* is a wildcard, so here is the right boot parameters:

cat extlinux.conf
Code: [Select]
DEFAULT xen3
PROMPT 1
TIMEOUT 1

LABEL xen3
MENU LABEL xen3
KERNEL mboot.c32
#APPEND /tce/boot/xen-4.7-unstable.gz --- /tce/boot/vmlinuz64 waitusb=5:root=UUID="6a608b93-5055-4afb-8207-3827177498b9" tce=UUID="6a608b93-5055-4afb-8207-3827177498b9" nodhcp noutc showapps syslog tz=Europe/Berlin host=xenbox kmap=de --- /tce/boot/corepure64.gz
APPEND /tce/boot/xen-4.7.0-rc.gz --- /tce/boot/vmlinuz64_6.4.1_3.16.6_xen waitusb=5 root=UUID="6a608b93-5055-4afb-8207-3827177498b9" tce=UUID="6a608b93-5055-4afb-8207-3827177498b9" nodhcp noutc showapps syslog tz=Europe/Berlin host=xenbox kmap=de pause --- /tce/boot/corepure64_6.4.1_3.16.6_xen.gz

We cannot support forks or derivative distros.
You need to get support from the supplier of that xen distro.

Not that it changes anything but isn't Xen a Hyperviser for the linux Kernel?

You would need to drop the xen part of things and boot using corepure64.gz and vmlinuz64 to know if this is a xen or corepure64 base issue.
