does anyone have a boot logo working?

i haven't had one for a very long time.

i enable it in kernel, have tried different kernels.

thought grub2 might have something to do with it so tried switching back to grub 1,

my .config

You need Device Drivers -> Graphics support -> Bootup logo -> Standard 224-color Linux logo.

If that's not working, try setting up a kernel seed. In addition to being configured for boot logos, kernel seeds give you a more efficient kernel than make defconfig.

whiteghost,

I have an old dell 4700 using i915 for Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller.

In order to get the boot logo I had to compile the driver in the kernel. When it was compiled as a module I never got the logo or initial boot messages.

I always compile my video drivers into the kernel and I've never not had a boot logo.

i do not need framebuffer for a logo, right?

BillWho and audiodef, which version of grub do you use?

i thought grub2 gfxmode, gfxpayload may affect logo?

my main box is funtoo with grub2, funtoo grub2 is a little different

i built a gentoo system on virtual box with old grub just to experiment and still no logo.

you mean the intel graphic driver? i use nvidia-drivers, always have. i do have
Code:
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y

and xf86-video-vesa installed.

whiteghost,

Please pastebin your dmesg.

You must use a framebuffer console to get a boot logo. You have both the old text vga console and the vesa framebffer console in your kernel.
dmesg will tell which is being used. You may need some kernel parameters on the kernel line in grub too. I use
Code:
vga=0x317 video=vesafb:mtrr:3,ywrap

the full context is
Code:
title=Kernel 3.3.1-gentoo (hd0)
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/3.3.1-gentoo root=UUID=ff5730d5-c28d-4276-b300-5b0b0fc60300 vga=0x317 video=vesafb:mtrr:3,ywrap
initrd /boot/initrd.cpio.gz

hi neddy,

my dmesg
http://paste.pocoo.org/show/588095/

added this in kernel line awhile back but it did not help
Code:
linux /gnome-zen video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr:1,1024x768-24@60 rootfstype=ext4 root=/dev/sda2

whiteghost,

Code:
[    0.000000] Console: colour dummy device 80x25
[    0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
and no sign of a framebuffer console.

I was looking for something like
Code:
[    1.391883] vesafb: mode is 1024x768x16, linelength=2048, pages=1
[    1.391886] vesafb: scrolling: redraw
[    1.391889] vesafb: Truecolor: size=0:5:6:5, shift=0:11:5:0
[    1.398651] vesafb: framebuffer at 0xf9000000, mapped to 0xffffc90010100000, using 3072k, total 14336k
[    1.400550] fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device


Is this a Xen dom0 or domU?

Code:
ls /dev/fb*
will list your framebuffer devices, if you have any.

You clearly have vesafb in the kernel config you showed but are you running a kernel made from that config file ?

i wish i could tell what i did to fix it. i've tried so many things ... i'm not sure what i did.

i now have boot logo.

one thing i now have is vga= in kernel line. will not work without it. [for me] thought i had tried with vga= a couple months ago.

supposedly the vga= is deprecated in grub2.

i would like to compare my new .config with old, but seems pastebin [pocoo], where my old file resides is out of business.

thanks for replies.

I recently got a bootsplash working, I think.

I have a nice grub background, then I pick my kernel and I get text running up the screen for a second or two, then two penguins, then more text for a few seconds, then once open-rc gets a few services started, I have a nice graphical progress bar.

I'm mostly satisfied, but I'm wondering if I can do more to hide those two steps of text scrolling? I assume I would have to use an initramfs or whatever (I currently don')

Nicias,

Yes and no to your initrd.

To get bootsplash on the console before root is mounted, you need some odds and ends of bootsplach related things in the intrd.
However, you can still boot with the initrd missing if you configure your kernel correctly - you just loose bootsplash.

Thanks for the quick reply. If the cost of sooner bootsplash is an initrd, I'll put it aside for now.
