[Mod Edit: This thread was split out of the original thread named "Boot Splash (background pic ala Suse) TIP of the YEAR!" -- This split was done because there was so much good information in the original thread we wanted to try and make all the information more accessible to everyone. Read my post in the original thread for more information. Thanks!

Regards,
BonezTheGoon]



Thank You Very Much! Now my linux looks GOOD 8)

For anyone who wants a different pre-made boot screen, i made a Darth Vader boot screen to use with this patch. You can download it at http://www.bobbycarroll.com/linux/bootsplash.jpg

Sweet, got it to work on my system. Don't want to bog down the thread w/ an IMG tag, so here's a link to a pic as it boots up: img removed

edit: I'm lookin through my referrer logs and see lots of hits for this. I think I accidentally deleted it a while ago. Don't have the bootsplash any more, just using the framebuffer at 1024x768

If you've got the cels created already and just need to slap them together, you can use convert
Code:
man convert
to find out more. You need to have ImageMagick emerged, and you have to be comfortable with using a CLI program to do graphics work. (feels a little strange first time around)

You guys might also be interested in emerging fbgrab (it's ~x86 masked at the moment).

fbgrab is a screen capture utility for frambuffer consoles.

I emerged bootsplash, worked like a charm:
http://users.pandora.be/elema/screens/bootsplash.png

After my exams I'll create my own splash-image, this'll do for now :-) By the way, I edited /etc/conf.d/local.start & .stop a little. I didn't use the script for .stop @ all and in start I removed the clearscreen and also put the new splash image only on tty 1 - 5.

Do you have a file only with the background? I liked it for my desktop background.
