I'm getting more and more frustrated! I'm kinda sure it has something to do with this RAMDISK error:

Here is what my dmesg looks like.

This is the related dmesg output. As you can see I get both ramdisk messages. I think the first one is loading the ramdisk for boot and the second one is freeing the ramdisk when you switch over to the hard drive. So, it really isn't a error, this is a just a guess though.
Only thing I can think of is to make sure you are using a jpeg image and that the resolution of the image matches your frame buffer size.

Code:

I already have LVM's initrd, how can I do if is what to use this splash?


I have no idea, LVM=logical volume manager? I really haven't messed with LVM's on linux, I get enough of that at work . Make a backup of your initrd and give it a shot. :)

Ok.. you corrected me :) One possible error taken off the list.. I can't remember if I asked it before, but have anyone used bootsplash with matroxfb ? (or other fb drivers except vesa?)

Will start all over with a kernelcompilation. I want this to work. About using the correct image.. I've been using the bootsplash ebuild the few last times.. guess this ebuild has correct images for all normal resolutions..

I'm not sure, just fire up gimp and check the resolution. If you are using vesa=791 make sure the image is 1024x768. If you are using a different vesa line make sure the image resoultion correlates.

The ebuild comes with images for 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024 at least. They are located in /usr/share/bootsplash/. I don't have X up and running yet, since I like to get one thing running before I go on with the next.. just my way of doing stuff.

But if the image isn't the right resolution, wouldn't I get a "splash image not found" kinda error message in my 'dmesg'? I'm not even getting that.. :?

Ok.. if you got time, lets go over this. My /etc/fstab looks like this:

Then I have recreated initrd just to be sure:
Code:
cd /usr/share/bootsplash-0.3/
splash -s -f bootsplash.cfg > initrd
cp initrd /boot/initrd

Rebooting, and all I get is normal matroxfb 1280x1024x32@85 with Gentoo bootlogo on upper left corner of the screen, which of course is nice, but not as nice as it would be with bootsplash.

Do you see anything wrong? I have tried this with normal "vesafb" mode too, but no luck, just a very slow fb@60Hz instead, so I've switched back to matroxfb witch is very fast compared to "vesafb".

joffer
to be honest i'm almost all out of ideas, i can only see a few very obvious things to point out but i will anyway:

firstly grub.conf here's mine:
Code:
default 2
timeout 05
splashimage=(hd0,4)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux 1.4
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hde7

title=Gentoo Linux 1.4 (testing)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/bzImage.testing root=/dev/hde7 vga=791 video=vesa:1024x768@70
initrd /boot/initrd

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

the only difference is as i've pointed out before is : initrd /boot/initrd. Can anyone verify that it works with initrd=/initrd, whenever i change this mine breaks straight away

secondly, was /boot mounted when you did
Code:
splash -s -f bootsplash.cfg > initrd
cp initrd /boot/initrd

nothing new here but the only things i can think of :roll:

Has anyone else had this problem? When I boot with the spash image I get the following error:

Code:
Looking for splash picture.... found, but has oversized text area!



I first tried estimating the cooridinates of the text area, then I copied directly from the 800x600 example file, then switched to using common sizes like 640x480. Has anyone come across this problem? I'm just not sure what a normal size for a text area would be.

I've never used debian, but does it have /etc/rc.d/rc.local ? That's the corresponding file in Trustix Secure Linux 1.5 (based upon RedHat 6.2).

I also got this on my gentoo box, because I forgot to configure grub the right way, I had vga=791 instead of vga=794 which was the right for my 1280x1024 I configure splah for

so maybe it's a wrong bootloader config, or wrong kernel config (forgot to use splahscreen instead of bootlogo)

I know one other person has said this, and I didn't see any responses, so I'll shoot it into the air again.

If you are running LVM, you already have an initrd setup. (it's used to run vgscan and so forth to setup the Volume Groups on boot, etc) Now, with this, it tells you to make an initrd called /boot/initrd, but what if you already have an initrd setup?
I've tried mounting through loopback the /boot/initrd this creates, and it doesn't appear to be a filesystem.. I'm guessing it's pure data of some form. I'm able to get the splash going once my system is up and rolling through the splash command, but the only thing I can get at boot is the penguin and "no signature found" when it's attempting to go for the bootsplash image. Now, I don't have the initrd in my lilo.conf set to the /boot/initrd because I need to keep what I currently have to boot. Is there a way to implement it into a currently existing initrd?
Or, better yet, is there a "splash=" parameter pass or some form to tell the kernel where the boot splash image is?

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:

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


I have the same problem, error messages but the bootsplash is working. I emerged bootsplash 0.4 with gentoo souces

My Grub config (I took "initrd /boot/initrd" and not "initrd=/boot/initrd" because webmin created it like this, but I tested with a "=")

Code:

default 2
timeout 8
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title Default
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3 vga=788

title Freevo
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3 vga=788 4

title ProdTest
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImageProdTest root=/dev/hda3 vga=788
initrd /boot/initrd

title safe
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImageSafe root=/dev/hda3
initrd /boot/initrd


My fstab file, normally boot is not mounted all the time but I chenged it now for testing.

Code:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-src/rc-scripts/etc/fstab,v 1.10 2002/11/18 19:39:22 azarah Exp $
#
# noatime turns of atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed; notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail and tail freely.

# <fs>             <mountpoint>    <type>     <opts>            <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/hda1      /boot      ext2      noatime         1 1
/dev/hda3      /      ext3      noatime         0 0
/dev/hda2      none      swap      sw         0 0

proc         /proc      proc      defaults      0 0

# glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
# POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink). Adding the following
# line to /etc/fstab should take care of this:
# (tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will use almost no
#  memory if not populated with files)

tmpfs         /dev/shm   tmpfs      defaults      0 0


And this are the files in the boot dir

Code:

Anybody sees something wrong in these files ?

It is strange that halfway the kernel boot, the kernel states that it found the bootsplash-image. Maybe something is wrong with it?

You mean this line :
Code:
 Looking for splash picture.... found (800x600, 13683 bytes).


Isn't that the grub menu background splash picture that is found ?

No it isn't. The kernel has nothing to do with grub and vice versa. It is the bootsplash it has found.

Look in the .cfg file, if this line:
Code:
version=2

is there, then you need to specify the terminal size in pixels. If not you need to specify the terminal size in characters like so:
Code:

  tx_pixels=10
  ty_pixels=10
  th_pixels=580
  tw_pixels=780
 
  char_w = 8
  char_h = 16

  tx = round(tx_pixels/char_w) # only want whole numbers, no fractions
  ty = round(ty_pixels/char_h)
  tw = round(tw_pixels/char_w)
  th = round(th_pixels/char_h)

Now if you are setting tx=32 and your width (tw) is too large then the terminal will not be positioned entirely on the screen, so you need to tweak the width value as well as the tx value (same goes for ty and th).
