hi,
i hope i'm in the right place with my question.
i wanted to install this bootscreen:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=46515
so i used the gensplash HOWTO on gentoo-wiki and tried to get it work
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_gensplash#Loading_initramfs_at_boot_.28recommended.29

i followed all the steps, but while booting i can see only a black screen with a smal blue line on the top until kde starts

here some output which i think is important to analyse the error

dmesg

Should not your initrd be in a new line?

yes, you're right, i puted it now in a new line
but now i can see the same screen like before, but kde does not start anymore.
i think i have to boot from a live-cd and edit my grub.conf until i know how to solve that problem.
any ideas?

not really necessery...
when you start grub, then go over "Gentoo Linux" and press 'e'. Now you can edit the options.
Just go and choose the line you want to edit, press 'e' again. When you feel ready, pres 'b' for boot

Don't forget to make the changes later in /boot/grub/menu.lst (if unable to use kde... than use nano like this: nano /boot/grub/menu.lst make changes and to save press ctrl + o and enter)

I am kind of amazed: in your Gentoo Linux 2.6.17-r8 test:
root (hd0,0)
root=/dev/sda3
WTF?

i thanks, i wanna try it at home, and post her e if it works.
i have a laptop (toshiba sattelite m70) with a sata hdd
root (hd0,0) = /dev/sda1 = /boot
/dev/sda2 = ntfs for windows
/dev/sda3 = /


but what can i do to see not only the black screen, i want to see the nice gentoo boot logo :wink:

===============================================================================================
€dit:
now i tried many different variations of my grub config, but I'm not able to get a bot-screen working.
the only thing found out is that if I erase initrd (hd0,0)/boot/fbsplash-gentoo-noia-1280x800 kde starts, otherwise i get a black screen and nothing happens..
i can't see an error or something like that.
i also checked if the fbsplash-gentoo.... is in the right directory and the name is written correctly.
that seems to be ok.
ideas?

in the output of dmesg, you have:
Code:
vesafb: unrecognized option mtrr

You must remove it from your grub kernel line. If it doesn't help, try another theme, a gentoo original one with pictures for different screen resolutions and different color depths as emergence. And try different resolutions and color depths with it. When you get a correct boot splash, if kde still doesn't work, you have to check xorg configuration in /etx/X11/xorg.conf.

EDIT: In your dmesg:
Code:
vesafb: mode switch failed (eax: 0x14f)
Console: switching to mono frame buffer device 160x50

gensplash will not work with a monochrome frame buffer. You must fix it first. If to remove mtrr from your kernel line doesn't help, you must check your kernel configuration..

Edit 2: It seam at mtrr is needed, but be in the form "mtrr:<number>" . I have mtrr:3 in my grub config.

hi, thx for your help :D

i just tried different resolutions and color depths, always the same black screen with a 2-5 pixel blue line at the top...
deleting mtrr does not help.
kde works fine, but only without boot splash
i think while using a boot splash there's an error, but i can't see it (also if i erase quiet CONSOLE=......)

how can i change the monochrome frame buffer to one that works with gensplash?
i made my kernel like in the how to, so i think it must be correct....

Read my EDIT 2 comment on the post before. I don't remember where I get info on this mtrr, maybe in /usr/src/linux/documentation/kernel-parameters,txt.
You can check if the frame buffer is working with
Code:
cat /proc/fb0/vbe_info
and which modes your hardware can do:
Code:
cat /proc/fb0/modes

But I am sure at it is a kernel issue if you get only a mono frame buffer. Maybe a wrong mtrr configuration. You can try to play with the number, 3 just work for me. If it doesn't help, check the kernel config again. And begin with a splash theme as the one I suggested before.

i will try it with mtrr:3, then edit this post if it works r not. if not i will doublecheck my kernel konfig.


=============================================================================================
Edit:
mtrr:3 brings no result
the kernel was configured right, but to be secure i compiled it once again
but nothing changed...
i can now only boot linux if i delete the initrd-line ...........

dmesg says the same (monochrome framebuffer etc. ):

The only thing that is doubtful now is the initrd image itself. Try to rebuild the initrd image.
Also, try putting a softlink:
Code:
ln -s /etc/splash/gentoo-noia /etc/splash/default


EDIT: modified softlink destination.

Dmesg output the messages from the kernel. So, if you remove the initrd and still have an error message with dmesg, it mean at the problem is in the kernel. Can be a wrong configuration or eventualy a bug.

i put now a symbolic link and remade the initrd image with no sucess..
is there any posibility to post my kernel-config, so that someone can have a look at it for a "fundamental" error or something?
or a "kernel-bug-list" where i can search por a patch or something that fixes that problem?

best wishes

Sorry! That should be a softlink to /etc/splash/default and NOT to /etc/default. I will modify my post.

Please remove the 2 FB_RADEON from your kernel. Gensplash will use the vesa_tng FB and for Xorg, the regular radeon driver is enough.

I don't know, but if you read the howto, someone get the same error with an ATI X800 and solved it by using the vesa frame buffer. You may need to use vbetest to find the vga= option.

hi,
thanks for your help again..
yesterday night i tried to fix it on my own, and now it works :D
with the new kernel and a other image it works fine with 1024x768
with 1280x800 i have the same problem as before...
now i have only to search for another theme that don't looks so bat at 1024x768 on a 15,4" Widescreen..
has anybody a link for me with good linux bootsplashes, themes and other desktop modding related stuff?
kde-look.org i have already seen.

greets from italy and thanks for all that help

Why don't do your own theme? Mine is here: Fvwm et gensplash, but the console will look very bad in 1024.

You must first find a picture, and after look in the doc and in the configuration of other themes to learn the basis. The gimp is your friend to make the verbose pic. You can do verry funny thing. I try to do another theme with a girl that look in a small hand mirror and the console was in the mirror. The only problem was at the console was around 100x80 pixels, but it worked.

And please, edit your first post and add solved on the title.

Cheers.

I believe there was a site with a couple of bootsplash themes. And there is probably a program available to convert bootsplash themes to gensplash themes. Unfortunately, I remember neither of them. So you will probably have to search around a bit in google.
