    Question S3-Gen6 getting an all gray screen!

    Hi all, been out of the scene for quite awhile but getting my feet wet again with an S3 gen6, I begged a prom which seems to work fine on an unhacked drive but when I use kill initrd or install a custom kernel I get a solid gray screen after the initial power up message. I left it on over night to see if it would reset to the original image but it does not. I can dd the original kernel back and it boots ok again.

    My question is could this be a prom issue or am I just goofing up the kernel swap? One other bit of info, my old prom was 1.04 where the new one was 1.06 (both gen6 in the header info).

    Any help is greaty appreciated,
    J

    Ok, I found another mod'd 1.06 prom and everything is good now, I think the other one I had was a virgin (would that make the gray screen??)

    Anyhow, on to the fun,
