Cool, I didn't miss this when I moved from SuSE to Gentoo, but recently I've been fiddling with GRUB to get a graphical boot manager, and now having a nice fb console really makes my screen look more consistent (same images in grub/console/kde background).

For those interested, here's mine:

Cool package. I have been working with framebf for a little bit now and am happy with how stable its become. Its really useful for things like pvrs and various other setop boxes. I will be nice when we get the version that supports the hardware accelerated frambuffer.

Maybe I'll give it a shot. I'd love to have the This is a Linux box background as a splash screen. My old craptastic Dell Laptop tends to confuse the slow and weak of mind when they see it booting up.

Here are a few of my bootsplash images (mine are just an image with the text next to it -- since my images are not friendly to any color of text to be over top of it.) My machine is named Weapon-X because I am a Wolverine fan to the max! So without further ado (as usual the art belongs to the original artists, I got the images off the web -- google rocks!)

Logan looking very pissed

Weapon X wolverine comic cover art

BonezTheGoon

As for the grub splash screen I think that is a little off topic, but since we allow for pretty loose standards in the OTW forum here is my grub splash screen too (reduced color map to 16 colors)

Wolverine bloody -- This link is for the image that is already in the xpm.gz format ready to use with grub.
Wolverine bloody jpeg version -- This is the same image in a jpeg format so you can see it within your browser to know if you want the other version for grub.

OK just got some new ones ready -- for these I use text across the images. Red (4) and Bright White (15) respectively.

As usual all credit goes to the original artists!!!

Enjoy!

Thought I would share my bootsplash and config.

Here is a 16-bit 1280x1024 version of my bootsplash. I will try and make a 1024x768 if I get time.

[img:5f75f60956]http://www.cilogic.net/gentoo/bootsplash-thumb.jpg[/img:5f75f60956]

Here is my bootsplash.cfg with the X|Y coords to center your text in the left blue box, with bright white text. It looks really sweet booting up.

Code:

# config file version
version=3

# should the picture be displayed?
state=1

# fgcolor is the text forground color.
# bgcolor is the text background (i.e. transparent) color.
fgcolor=15
bgcolor=0

# (tx, ty) are the (x, y) coordinates of the text window in pixels.
# tw/th is the width/height of the text window in pixels.
tx=5
ty=270
tw=693
th=658

jpeg=/usr/share/splash/bootsplash.jpg

progress_enable=1



Here is my grub.conf entry.

Code:

title=QuiK_ChaoS
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3 vga=794 video=vesa:1280x1024@85
initrd=(hd0,0)/boot/initrd


BTW, This is a wallpaper from DeskMod.com, and I just added some blues to it, and a Gentoo logo :wink: , and the girl in the pic is snowboarder Suzanne Shaw. Yum. :lol:

Wow, that one is pretty nice -- I'm sure many people will enjoy using that little gem!

Thanks!

For those that want the 1024 version (like me :)) of quikchaos's bootsplash.

Code:

tx=5
ty=200
tw=550
th=496


Use these values in your config file and just scale the image to 1024x768 (using gimp).
