I can't get splashutils to compile at all for me.

I've heard that 2.6.17 and klibc break fbsplash. Is this true? Is there anyway to get a splash with 2.6.17?

I, too, will try the ~amd64 masked version, then regenerate the initrd image. Hopefully that will fix it, but I looked through the splashtools changelog and I didn't see anything relevant to this issue.


I tried going ~x86 on splashutils and it made no difference (I regenerated the initrd image too)... I haven't synced in a while so I actually went from 1.1.9.8_r1 to 1.1.9.10_r1 (and it also installed klibc) - not sure how up to date this is

Hi,
just a stupid question : I have a bootsplash running but the image is showing 'gentoo linux 2004.0 ' instead of '2006.0'... Where's this image stored so that I can change it ?Thanks :)

Code:
emerge splash-themes-livecd package
and then set up this theme as per normal. This should give you a nice 2006.0 theme.

Well, I don't know how to set another theme. I have dowloaded splash-themes-livdecd already and thought that was what would show up..... I just ran splash_geninitramfs as described in the first page of this thread.. What command should I use ?

Code:
cd /etc/splash/
splash_geninitramfs livecd-2006.0 -r 1024x768 -g /boot/fbsplash-livecd-2006.0-1024x768 -v

(or change this to a more suitable resolution)

then in grub.conf append this to the line beginning 'kernel'

Code:
video=vesafb:1280x1024-32@80 splash=silent,theme:livecd-2006.0 quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1
(may not be vesafb; depends what framebuffer support you have compiled into the kernel) and add this line underneath the kernel line:
Code:
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/fbsplash-livecd-2006.0-1280x1024

again, adjust for correct resolution (and boot partition!)

If you need more detailed help, it would help if you could tell us whether or not you have your framebuffer working, what graphics card you have, and what screen resolution you want/have.

Good luck. :)

Thanks ! :)

Well, I thought it was something more complex and didn't try just to replace the word 'emergence' by 'livecd'...
Nice !

I recently emerged gensplash, and, after playing around for a while got it -mostly- up and running. Splash image shows fine, but, as with many people here, I have no progress bar. I have no idea where to start.

Code:
# grub.conf

title=Gentoo Linux 2006.0 | 2.6.17-beyond1.1
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:1280x1024-24@85,mtrr,ywrap splash=silent,fadein,theme:real-life quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/fbsplash-real-life-1280x1024

So it's pointing to the right initramfs image, and it was created with no errors.

Code:

loaf barry # zcat /boot/fbsplash-real-life-1280x1024 | cpio --list
.
dev
dev/fb
dev/vc
dev/misc

etc/splash/real-life/images/verbose-1280x1024-240.png
sys
proc
sbin
sbin/splash_helper
root
2422 blocks


Also just in case.

default symlink points to the right theme.

And here's a link to the theme's tarball; http://svn.pureenergy.cc/rlSplash/releases/real-life-splash-0.1.tar.bz2
And a pic of what the progress bar should look like; http://westhoffswelt.de/blog/index.php?/archives/3-simple-stylisch-gentoo-fbsplash.html

If there is anything else I should include, please tell me, and thanks to all those who help.

Well, I managed to have a livecd splash screen working BUT is isn't centered: there is a shift of about 30 pixels on the left border, so that I can't see the right gauge filling up while booting. In verbose mode, I cannot see the [ok] or [!!] on the right either.

Curiously, my gnome and gdm screens are perfectly centered !
I tried also booting with the video resolution only (no initrd, no splash theme) and it is not centered either...

My hardware :

Screen: Mitsubishi 2070B (22 in.)
Video Card: Hercules Radeon 9700 Pro

Any idea ? :)

I had been having a problem (about a page ago on this forum) where the splash was working fine for me, but I didn't get any text. Long after giving up on it, I came upon the solution by accident. All you have to do is make sure splashutils was compiled with the truetype use flag! After I re-emerged it, I recreated my splash file (dunno if it's necessary, I just did) and boom, it WORKS!!! And you don't need to re-emerge the installed themes.

Sounds to me like a monitor problem. If your monitor has an auto-adjust button or option in its menu, use it while the splash screen is displayed. If the splash screen isn't displayed long enough for the monitor to run the auto-adjust, then you could try doing a console login instead of logging into gnome. Or maybe after logging into gnome you could switch back to the first virtual terminal with Ctrl-Shift-F1 and then do the auto-adjust. Good luck!

I had the same problem - I didn't re-create the splash file so it's not necessary - but re-compiling with the truetype USE flag worked perfectly! Thanks for letting me know.

I think it is not a monitor problem:

1) It works perfectly in default 640x480 mode (no splash)
2) After this startup it is perfectly centered
3) It is centered in Windows (and the boot screen is also)
4) Besides, it's a quality monitor

I tried to recompile with truetype, but with no avail...

I suspect it may be related with the graphic driver instead. I use vesa-tng and I have ati-drivers after that.

Thanks anyway for the idea. :)

Okay, I have had splash screen running quite well for a long time. But now, while designing a new theme I have run in to a problem I don't have answer to: How to change the console text color? The picture is really bright, so I want to get rid of the default grey. Fgcolor doesn't seem to work. The init messages I changed by editing /etc/init.d/functions.sh, but that doesn't help after loginning in.

So, what would be the answer to this problem?

Solved! I recompiled with radeonfb support and the screen is perfectly centered now. It was, definitely, a driver problem. :)

Hello everyone,

Note that for kernel versions from 2.6.13 onwards you *must* specify the mtrr mode: eg "mtrr:2".


I am using kernel 'linux-2.6.15-gentoo-r8'

Is this number pulled out of thin air? Can someone tell me how is it determined???

This is a late reply, but I just now started messing with gensplash. I wanted to know the same thing when I saw that entry on the wiki. I found the answer in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/fb/vesafb.txt. All of the options to both the standard vesafb driver as well as to vesafb-tng are explained there.

Just ran the LiveCD to get things going two nights ago, and I really like the graphical startup and shutdown that show progress... I also really like the Gentoo sidebar on the right side of the console... How would I go about getting these things back after the installation is done? Is there a package with all this stuff? Great eyecandy for showing off a Gentoo system.
