That IS creative but...

Why on earth would you want anyone to think that?

Now I've done it I'm not quite sure. I just wanted to do something other than take a rendered 3D image, darken it and stick a box on it. I might try to make it look like an Atari ST desktop instead, I think that would be cooler.

well, after reading this tutorial over, it is fantastic! I'm really mad though, since I spent a whole day recompiling kernels trying to get this to work (I really liked how the LiveCD used this, so I found it in portage and started messing around). I've managed to get it all working on my own, for the most part (I didn't use this manual, I did it all on my own, probably messing things up along the way.

I have it using the Gentoo LiveCD 2004.1 theme. After GRUB boots Linux, it appears perfectly like the LiveCD. However, the last line it gets to before it brings up the KDE Login Manager, nukes it. "Setting Console frame buffer images..." erases it with some other Gentoo theme I don't want. I tried to remove console frame buffer support from my kernel (remember, I was using trial and error and *wasn't thinking*) and that made nothing show until KDE started up...

so...is there a way to make it not overwrite that??? I really like the LiveCD theme better, and I don't know how to make the default Gentoo one stop. Since I did this completely out or order, I wouldn't be surprised at all if there is something I did wrong (and in fact, I know something is wrong ;)). Any suggestions are welcome, and I can post .CONF files here as necessary.

For those who can't get into the bootsplash menu or can't activate bootsplash by hand be sure you have the following in (or not in) your kernel config:

Code:

Processor type and features  --->
  [ ] Use register arguments (EXPERIMENTAL)
Device Drivers  --->
  Graphics support  --->
    [*] Support for frame buffer devices
    [*]   VESA VGA graphics support
    Console display driver support  --->
      [*]   Video mode selection support
      <*> Framebuffer Console support
    Logo configuration  --->
      [ ] Bootup logo
    Bootsplash configuration  --->
      [*] Bootup splash screen


bootsplash themes

I should probably add some more stuff to my earlier post (it was really late when I typed it up). I'm running Kernel version 2.6.5-gentoo-r1 on a PIII 733mHz. And, as for what I'm talking about for the switching back to default gentoo theme, it switches the console background from this (Gentoo LiveCD 2004.1) to this (default Gentoo Bootsplash theme). Is it an improperly formed initrd file? Some .CONF file I missed?

Thanks for any help :)

Thanks for the link. I tried patching my gentoo-dev-sources (2.6.7-gentoo) with this but it looks like it was a reverse patch and I lost the "configure bootsplash" menu. Is there a recommended patch for the gentoo-dev-sources?

Thanks,

Dave

I can't get bootsplash and framebuffer working on my system.
I have an Abit IS7-E motherboard and a GeForce 4 MX graphics card.

On boot time I get the message:
You passed an undefined mode number.
Press <RETURN> to see video modes available, <SPACE> to continue or wait 30 secs

My grub.conf:
title=linux 2.6.5 with fb
root (hd0,0)

I have taken some screenshots of my framebuffer with bootpslash support. I'am playing the matrix revolution's trailer with xine using libcaca.

Here is some fun with Mplayer and Framebuffer

Try changing vga to 0x318 and if your initrd-1024x768 is in the same directory as your kernel you might have to change it to:

Code:

initrd=(hd0,0)/initrd-1024x768

For those interested in listing all their VESA modes for framebuffer support, I've found a program that will do it. This is a more convenient method than the one previously posted since it doesn't require making an MS-DOS boot floppy.

See the sixth post on this thread for details

i'm running 2.6.7-mm2 and successfully aplied the patch mentioned above. still, bootsplash does not work. it simply hangs after read in the kernel and does nothing - i.e. i get a black screen and the disk does nothing neither. my card is a VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (i810).

i tried both 0x317 and 0x305 according to
Code:
    | 640x480  800x600  1024x768 1280x1024
 ----+-------------------------------------
 256 |  0x301    0x303    0x305    0x307   
 32k |  0x310    0x313    0x316    0x319   
 64k |  0x311    0x314    0x317    0x31A   
 16M |  0x312    0x315    0x318    0x31B

Code:
image=/boot/kernel-2.6.7-mm2/bzImage
 vga=0x305
 root=/dev/hda3
 label=2.6.7-mm2
 read-only
 append ="apm=on acpi=off video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr"
 initrd=/boot/initrd-Emergance

you see i now have the vga set to 0x305 as this is the only mode which the kernel at least boots (unfortunately without a bootsplash).
vbetest shows:

I have stiil problems with i810 + gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.7-r6.

framebuffer seems to work now (tux is shown), but no bootsplash. On other PCs with standard vgafb it works.

For booting GNU/Linux
title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,1)
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 video=i810fb:hsync1=31.5:hsync2=48.5:vsync1=50:vsync2=70:xres=1024:yres=768:mtrr:bpp=16 splash=verbose
initrd (hd0,1)/boot/initrd-1024x768

can anyone help?

regards
Stefan

this sound interesting as i do have a intel i810 graphic card too. so this may be the issue. have you ever achieved getting bootsplash running with the i810?

I don't know if it's the intel integrated graphics, but I'm using a Geforce FX5200 with an Nforce2 motherboard, and I just upgraded my kernel to 2.6.7-mm2, applied the bootsplash patch and bootsplash stopped working for me. It just hangs with a black screen when trying to boot the kernel.

I ended reverting back to 2.6.7-r3-mm2 due to the bootsplash problem with 2.6.7-mm2 and due to an audio problem.

I can't get my personal splash image to load on boot(before the rc script loads it on boot), it uses the generic ugly gentoo bootsplash with the cow. How can I fix that? I followed the guide carefully.

Hi there i have bootsplash working fine with development-sources, but i have emerge gento-dev-sources, linux-2.6.7gentoo-r6. And i can open bootsplash configuration --->

I have made all the steps.

With development-sources, linux-2.6.6 i can do that, and i have bootsplash working fine.

With gento-dev-sources i can't do it ;( , How can i enable the menu ?

Hi.
I have the gentoo-dev-sources2.6.7-r6 installed and i'm now trying to get the bootsplash running. The problem is, that none of the patches linked in the forums work. It alwas says something like "previously applied patch detected". But i didn't apply any patch before. And i can't access the bootsplash menu in menuconfig, so the patch _isn't_ applied.
Well, i'm a n00b as you can see, but it would be great if someone could give me a solution for this problem.
Thanks
