I notice someone else has this same problem. I have an MSI GF4 Ti4200-8x VTD 128MB. All the relevant options in the kernel are on, and not as modules. If enable the bootlogo, that works; if I don't, it just boots up normally as if there were no splashscreen stuff configured at all. I'm using 2.6.8.1-nitro1. Here's the grub.conf entry:

Code:
title=Gentoo, nitro-sources
root (hd0,8)
kernel /nitro-sources-kernel root=/dev/hda10 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@85 splash=verbose

(for the dmesg snippet above I manually edited the line to 16bpp, but it does the same thing if I choose 32 except it replaces 16 with 32 in all the 'not found' messages)

What could the problem be?

I am having the same problem as well, but with the 2.6.8.1-mm1 kernel. I have removed some things from the -mm patchset that I think are the culprit, and I am compiling now.

btw, does xx-sources patch to -mm?

I also have the same problem with 2.6.8-rc4-mm1. I first tried it without the fbsplash-0.9-r5-2.6.8-rc3.patch (I saw no rc4 patch available), but it gave me a message that I needed a patch before emerging splashutils. Then I applied that patch and now I get the same errors.

I am getting the impression that my video BIOS doesn't have the correct information (or doesn't have any at all), which is why the log says things like 0Hz max refresh, and can't find any modes to use. Is this possible? Furthermore, if it is, is it possible to force a specific setting somehow whether or not the video card approves of it?

According to the vesafb-tng website, this is indeed an isssue with the video BIOS. <expletives>

Quote:
vesafb-tng::BIOSes

It has been reported that vesafb-tng doesn't work very well with nVidia 5900 boards. A user (nick: Danone) has reported to me that it is possible to make the board more cooperative by editing its BIOS. He has put a sample edited BIOS image on http://www.f-mt.de/linux/vfb/nvhack/ and asked for feedback if anyone decides to use it. You can contact him on ICQ, his UIN is 101509990. Note that messing with your BIOS is a risky procedure (at least far more risky than just trying vesaf-tng ;)) and I have no way of checking that this BIOS image will actually work. Don't try to do that if you aren't absolutely sure what you are doing. Ask Danone for help if you feel like trying it out.


Guess I'm be looking for alternate BIOSes for my Ti4200... :(

Ok, I am using the gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.8-r1 which has the vesafb-ng and fbsplash already included.

I compiled the splashutils in portage, (pre6) and got everything working OK. (I think)

I did:

Code:

splash_geninitramfs -g /usr/src/linux/usr/initramfs_data.cpio.gz -r 1280x1024 default


My grub.conf has:

Code:
kernel (hd1,1)/boot/kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/hde2 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-16@60 splash=silent


When I reboot I get about a page and a half of kernel text messages and then it switches to the framebuffer screen.
Is this normal or should it startup at framebuffer like bootsplash?

Any ideas or similiar problems?

I have kind of the opposite problem...I just installed gensplash and I get the silent splash screen for awhile, and then it switches to the framebuffer for the second half of the init messages before login.

Also, I seem to have framebuffer only on virtual console 1...when I switch to vc2 I get the regular black screen login.

count_zero.. you should have read before posting.. there is the anser for that at this thread, anyway..
Code:
nano -w /etc/conf.d/splash
at the last line, change "yes" to "no"

jubenvi, its normal since u use vesafb-tng from spock... its a nice patch but with normal vesafb, changing the mode with the "vga" did it well

u still can use normal vesafb if u want with fbsplash, but vesafb-tng is better, it allows much more framebuffer modes

I have a question.. How to enable the Progress bar while booting and how to use other theme (not emergance)? For example I want to use this theme:

http://www.bootsplash.de/files/themes/screenshots/Theme-AquaMatrix-verbose-top.png

http://www.bootsplash.de/files/themes/Theme-AquaMatrix.tar.bz2

I tried the way it's described in the HOW-TO, but didn't worked!! Then I tried using the same cfg files but emergance's pictures. It worked. But I don't want Emergance :D

Evry kind of help will be apriciated.

you have to have the same file structure as the emergenct theme.

first put your theme in /etc/splash
then link you theme to "default" with a symbolic link.
Code:

ln -s /etc/splash/yourtheme /etc/splash/default


then move the appropriate bootsplash-.cfg file to the appropriate place (/etc/splash/default)
Code:

cp /etc/splash/default/config/bootsplash-resolution.cfg /etc/splash/default/resolution.cfg


notice that you drop the "bootsplash" part of the filename, so for example:

bootsplash-1280x1024.cfg should be

copied as 1280x1024.cfg nd it is copied to /etc/splash/default

then change the config so that it points to the right pictures

Code:
nano -w /etc/splash/default/resolution.cfg



your pics are now located in /etc/splash/*themeyouwant*/images/*picsyouwant*

instead of /etc/bootsplash/images.............

you then have to run the splash_geninitramfs command (change the resolution to your res.)
cd to /usr/src/linux
make bzImage
mount /boot
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/.............

Another question. What do I do with jpeg= Change it into pic=?

The new 1024x768.cfg looks like this:

Code:

# should the picture be displayed?

# fgcolor is the text forground color.
# bgcolor is the text background (i.e. transparent) color.
fgcolor=7
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=40
ty=50
tw=944
th=632

# ttf message output parameters
text_x=200
text_y=430
text_size=20
text_color=0xeef4ff

Are you saying that if I use the normal vesafb instead of the spock vesafb-tng, that I will get the framebuffer sooner? Will everything else work the same? Still works with gensplash?

I can live without the different refresh rates and such.

I have to tell you something... It doesn't work :(

I installed splashutils like it says. But I didn't patch it, just installed. And I use gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.8-r1 kernel (it is allredy patched..)

yes, it should start with your default framebuffer resolution, at least sooner than with vesafb-tng...
And I want to know to how to expand it to all terminals, because uncommenting in /etc/conf.d/splash the line
Code:
SPLASH_TTYS="0 1 2 3 4 5"

doesnt work for me...

I just got gensplash/fbsplash working with gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.8-r1. Great!

Just a question: What do I have to do when I change to a new kernel. Does everything has to be done anew? The kernel patches are in gentoo-dev-sources now, but do I need to re-emerge splashutils and do
Code:
splash_geninitramfs -v -g /usr/src/linux/usr/initramfs_data.cpio.gz -r 1024x768 emergence
again?

I couldn't find this in the docs and howto's. Thanks.

when you change to a new kernel, just run the command you typed before you make your bzImage.

ok i got rid of those splash and splash_utils errors:
the reason is that 'splash' will be called BEFORE the mounting.. so if you have /usr on another partition you will get the errors!

cp /usr/bin/fbset /sbin
cp /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62 /lib
cp /usr/lib/libpng.so.3 /lib

edit the /sbin/splash:
line 31: res=`/sbin/fbset | grep "^mode" | sed -r 's/mode "([0-9]+x[0-9]+).*/\1/'`



but i have another issue running the newest love (2.6.8-love2_rc4-r2) and ati radeon 9700pro:
screenie
the boot process starts black and the lines are 'clearing' the picture...ok i can live with that.
but at the end of boot and switching back to console it ends up this screenie.
i have tried many boot args.. my current are:
kernel=(hd0,0)/kernel-2.6.8-love2_rc4-r2 root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:ywrap,pmipal,mttr,1280x1024-16@60 splash=verbose,theme:my


any help ?

any idea on how to get this working with lilo?

ii'm using devsources2.6.8r1 (patch included), frame buffer is on:

Code:
vesafb: framebuffer at 0xb0000000, mapped to 0xd8809000, size 16384k


this is how kernel is recieving the lilo "append" (from dmesg):

Code:
Kernel command line: auto BOOT_IMAGE=gentoo ro root=343 video=vesafb:yrwap,pmipal,1024x768-32@75 splash=silent,theme:emergence


this is my lilo.conf

Code:
boot=/dev/hdb
prompt
delay=15
vga=792
default=gentoo

image=/boot/vmlinuz
  label=gentoo
  read-only
  root=/dev/hdb3
  append="video=vesafb:yrwap,pmipal,1024x768-32@75 splash=silent,theme:emergenc$


though nothing is showed while booting, nothing at all, just like a normal boot.

any tips? 8O

i'm kinda lost here

there are some spelling errors here that may be affecting your progress.....

change yrwap to ywrap and emergenc$ to emergence

I dont't think that the theme:emergence is totally necessary since it is the default. You might even want to try taking that out or changing it to theme:default
