craftyc, I think i see your problem.. you are using vga=792 I tried this out once and it worked, then decided it wasnt going to show my boot image and would just show the default display with tux in the top left corner. It runs fine with vga=791 and image quality seems fine.

Good Luck


Still no luck. :(

hi

i got the same probs some people are mentioning here
=> dmesg output (removed unimportant lines for readability)
Code:

Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda6 hdc=ide-scsi vga=794
...
vesafb: framebuffer at 0xc0000000, mapped to 0xf0814000, size 131072k
vesafb: mode is 1280x1024x16, linelength=2560, pages=1
vesafb: protected mode interface info at c000:ee20
vesafb: scrolling: redraw
vesafb: directcolor: size=0:5:6:5, shift=0:11:5:0
Looking for splash picture.... no good signature found.
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x64
fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device
...
RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 131072K size 1024 blocksize
loop: loaded (max 8 devices)
...
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
Freeing initrd memory: 42k freed


what could be wrong here? i have recompiled my kernel about 5 times now, resizing the ramdisk, adjusted my grub.conf,...
i'm using a nvidia gf4200ti.

here's my kernel config:
Code:

# Block devices
#
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NBD=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM_SIZE=131072
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD=y

# Console drivers

CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y

# Frame-buffer support

CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FB_LOGO_GENTOO=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y

CONFIG_FBCON_CFB8=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB16=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB24=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB32=y
CONFIG_FBCON_FONTS=y
CONFIG_FONT_8x16=y

the settings i have removed here are not set


part of my grub.conf:
Code:

default 0
timeout 7
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo 2.4.19-r10
root (hd0,1)
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/gentoo.2419r10 root=/dev/hda6 hdc=ide-scsi vga=794
initrd=/boot/initrd


thx for any help!

Still trying to get this to work on vanilla-sources :( Everything compiles fine, but when I reboot the screen just goes blank. I am running a G4/Ti4600 and trying to get 1280x1024@70. Any ideas ?

Did you resize the images to 1280x1024 as they won't be resized automatically? I'm using vanilla 2.4.20, followed the instructions to the letter and everything works fine for me.

I also get the same problem with grub. It says /boot/initrd cannot be found. Here's my grub.conf:

default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda4 vga=791 video=vesa:1024:768@70 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd=/boot/initrd

title=Windows XP
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1



I had /boot mounted when I made the initrd file, and it is automounted on boot.

Thanks

synic:

i had problems with this tip and grub as well untill i changed the relevant lines in grub.conf to
Code:

kernel /boot/bzImage.test root=/dev/ataraid/d0p6 hdc=ide-scsi vga=791 video=vesa:1024x768@70
initrd /boot/initrd

NB: the no equals after initrd - just like the kernel line (thats the important part not the ataraid obviously)

i also unmounted /boot and repeated the
Code:
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg > /boot/initrd


i have no idea which one of these actually resulted in it working but one of them sure did,
easy enough to test i just haven't bothered since "if it ain't broke..."

hope this helps

gentoo-sources-2.4.20-r1 with the bootsplash patch. No bootsplash, just Tux :( Everything done according to the "how-to". I'm using grub, and I've tried with both
Code:
initrd=/initrd
and
initrd /initrd

giving any of this two lines gives me as I said, tux, and also 640x480 resolution instead of 1024x768, which works fine if I don't add the initrd line. I'm using matroxfb (G450).

Anyway, as I was looking through 'dmesg' I saw this "error" in regard to RAM disks... Could this be part of the problem?:
Code:
RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disk of 4096K size 1024 blocksize
...(some lines further down)...
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.

If so, how do I fix it?

Joffer,

if you followed the exact instructions in this thread shouldn't that be
Code:
initrd /boot/initrd

and not /initrd which suggests that you ran:
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg > /initrd instead of
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg > /boot/initrd
and therefore put the initrd on your root partition instead of your boot partition

No, not that I know of. If you read the installation guide, you would see that everything in grub is related to the partition it is installed in. I got a seperat partition for grub.conf & /boot, which is /dev/hda2, which is only mounted when I need to change boot configurations and install a new kernel.

Another thing I'm struggeling with is to get the gentoo-sources-2.4.20-r1 to give me a matroxfb bigger than 640x480. gentoo-sources-2.4.19-r10 does, but then again I get errors with the RAMDISK, which I don't with 2.4.20-r1.. pretty strange.. Error with 2.4.19-r10 and RAMDISK:

Code:
RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disk of 4096K size 1024 blocksize
...(some lines further down)...
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.

If it aint one problem, it sure is another :(

Update..

I've now tried with the vanilla-sources-2.4.20 and I kinda get the same results.

If I'm just using matroxfb (no bootsplash) everything works fine, I'm not getting anny RAMDISK errors during bootup etc, but as fast as I add any of these options
Code:
initrd=/initrd
initrd /initrd
initrd=/boot/initrd
initrd /boot/initrd
to my grub.conf I get RAMDISK error during bootup:
Code:
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
Isn't this strange? Any suggestions about what could be wrong?

Let me ask another related question too.. have anyone used bootsplash successfully together with matroxfb (or any other fb driver (except vesa of course)?

the bootsplash ebuild is available now :) at least from my swedish rsync server. I want my norwegian rsync server back online!!!

Tried to emerge it, went ok.
Tried to run the command as the info said:
Code:
root # ebuild /var/db/pkg/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2.ebuild config
!!! doebuild: /var/db/pkg/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2.ebuild not found.


I think there is some error in the given information displayed after the emerge. It is:
Code:
 *
 * Execute "ebuild /var/db/pkg/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2.ebuild config"
 * to have your kernel sources in /usr/src/linux patched with the
 * Framebuffer Bootsplash patches
 *
I think it should be:
Code:
 *
 * Execute "ebuild /var/db/pkg/media-gfx/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2.ebuild config"
 * to have your kernel sources in /usr/src/linux patched with the
 * Framebuffer Bootsplash patches
 *
Note the missing /media-gfx/ and the extra /bootsplash-0.2/ in the existing ebuild info.. (is this something I should report to bugzilla or something btw?)

I've reemerged vanilla-sources-2.4.20, and running the command with the correct path:
Code:
ebuild /var/db/pkg/media-gfx/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash-0.2.ebuild config
gives me this:
Code:

 *                              [*] VESA VGA graphics console
 *                              [*] Use splash screen instead of boot logo
 *
 * Copy /usr/share/bootsplash-0.2/initrd to /boot

 * Look at "/usr/share/bootsplash-0.2/grub.conf.sample" for an example
 * grub.conf file with the appropriate changes to enable the
 * framebuffer boot screens
 *
 * Ensure you make the appropriate changes to your grub.conf
 *
Looks great so far... just have to get this RAMDISK (initrd) crap to work now..

Got the error, don't worry about bugzilla, I'll fix it straight away.

Sorry about that.

OK, forget the above, I think I have another problem, my kernel does not compile at all anymore, even without the patches and original configuration... VERY strange.

Update: If someone comes across the same problem: It is a bug with gcc-config, updating to 1.3.0 solves it.

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8132#c21

But now back to the nice bootsplash-pictures ;-)

joffer:
what's really interesting is that this tip works great for me but i just checked my dmesg output and this is what i found:
Code:
nick@localhost nick $ dmesg | grep -i ramdisk
RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 4096K size 1024 blocksize
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.

and yet as i say everything is working fine..
i still think that your problem is with where initrd is placed and grub.conf notation but then, what do i know :?

EDIT: rather than post again i thorght i'd confirm here that i have the bootsplash working perfectly despite this error

You get this error too, _and_ get bootsplash to work?

Anyway, I think I might have found one error from my side.. looks like I somehow builded "Block Devices -> Loopback device support" as a module, instead of static/in kernel. I startet a kernel rebuild last night, gonna chech it soon..

I still get the RAMDISK error :( And NO bootsplash. This is with vanilla-sources v2.4.20 and the emerged bootsplash ebuild. why why why?

My dmesg (in case anyone sees an error I've missed):

No I haven't, since matroxfb should be much faster, but it won't hurt to test vesa too. give me 30 minutes :)

So, I set everything up. Apparently correctly, because it worked like a charm because it worked with the stock setup. I got the Larry the Cow background. Yay!

So, it became time to try out my own pics. First up, Catherine Zeta-Jones. If I were to get this to work, my roommate would instantly switch to Linux. So this is BIG guys. We get this solved, we got one more! :D

Anyways, this is what dmesg says:
Code:
[snip snip]
vesafb: framebuffer at 0xd0000000, mapped to 0xe080d000, size 65536k
vesafb: mode is 1280x1024x16, linelength=2560, pages=1
vesafb: protected mode interface info at c000:ede0
vesafb: scrolling: redraw
vesafb: directcolor: size=0:5:6:4, shift=0:11:5:0
Looking for splash picture....<6>error 11 while decompressing picture.
Console: switching to colour fram buffer device 160x64
fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device
[snip snip]

Any ideas?

the process to create the initrd file is:
Code:
ln -sf /home/me/pics/console.jpg /usr/share/bootsplash-0.2/bootsplash.jpg
cd /usr/share/bootsplash-0.2
splash -s -f ./bootsplash.cfg > ./initrd
mv /boot/initrd /boot/initrd.bak #yes, boot is mounted
cp ./initrd /boot/initrd
reboot


bootsplash.cfg is the stock config file from the ebuild.

Want the pic to test it out? I've tried resizing (as in bytes, not dimensions) to make a smaller file. I got it below the Larry the Cow one. Still no go.

Now I've got vesafb compiled into the kernel, and man this is slow. just watching 'dmesg' takes "forever" before it is finished. AND the bad news is that this didn't fix a thing. I'm still stuck with no bootsplash, a RAMDISK complaining and also only 60Hz vrefresh :(

I'm getting more and more frustrated! I'm kinda sure it has something to do with this RAMDISK error:
Code:
nick@localhost nick $ dmesg | grep -i ramdisk
RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 4096K size 1024 blocksize
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.

Anyone here that can correct me? That can say they have bootsplash up and running and also this error in their 'dmesg'?
