u-boot menu text is not displayed correctly (GTA01Bv4)

On recent u-boots built from the "openmoko_svn.bb" recipe, the text in the
u-boot menu is not displayed properly and is almost unreadable. Please see the
attached screen capture. The menu itself works OK, and there are no problems
with the boot messages from the Linux kernel or with the OpenMoko? GUI (so it's
not a physical problem with my screen).

The screen capture was taken with a slightly older build of the program, but I
have confirmed it on a fresh build of
u-boot-gta01bv4-1.3.1+git20071220+svnr3692-r1.bin . My only modifications from
the standard recipe are a patch for #799 (SD-booting) and a fix for the
"localversion" string, and I can't see any way that either of these could cause
a video/font problem.

Confirmed the fix -- thanks!

Hmm, I wonder if we shouldn't just simply turn off HWSWP in LCDCON5
(board/neo1973/common/jbt6k74.c) and adjust the splash screen image instead.
Not only would this avoid the SHORTSWAP32 kludge, but it would also make
console output a little faster.

Drawback: splash screens will look a little funny (until updated).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

My proposed fix (disabling HWSWP) is in r3774, along with an update of

The latter now needs to be invoked with the option -swap to produce a valid
image. I didn't update the devirginator yet, because there's a larger set of
changes coming that still need verification.
