While Tux is a nice fellow I just had to have an actual Gentoo logo in the bootloader for my Macbook.
So, if you are using that bootloader, you only have to download these two files and install them in /efi/refit/icons/:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~grahl/macbook/os_linux.icns -- The actual logo you can select
http://dev.gentoo.org/~grahl/macbook/boot_linux.icns -- The washed out logo after selecting, while booting

This was just a very short GIMP trickery, so don't expect too much bling.

For people also wanting to make these icons and too lazy to google, here is what I did:
-Install XCode Tools for the icon builder app
-Convert the Gentoo SVG logo with GIMP to a format the icon builder likes, like tiff.
(-Optionally, use GIMP to make things pretty. I used a background layer with #bfbfbf and a duplicate of that on the foreground with lower opacity to make the washed out logo.)
-Import the picture created in the icon builder as a 32Bit Thumbnail, save it.
-Replace the files in /efi/refit/icons, they will be used at the next boot.

Hopefully someone can use these :-)

Very old thread, I know, but does someone have a copy of said logos, since the links above are dead?!
