It seems like its going smooth for all except me. hehe.
I get this error when im compiling the kernel:

make -C video fastdep
make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r5/drivers/video'
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `fbcon-splash16.c', needed by `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r5/include/linux/modules/fbcon-splash16.ver'. Stop.

make[1]: *** [_sfdep_drivers] Error 2

I already have an initrd (due to LVM). How do I edit this initrd to add the bootsplash stuff?

Try this:

Code:
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg > /boot/initrd

anyone have a way to make this work if you are already using a initrd for something else (say complete drive encryption)

I'd imagine you can create an initrd with a different filename or suffix and add that filename to your bootloader configuration.

Dylix, can I just ask, how did you get this working with 2.4.21 vanilla? When I try and apply the patches to the kernel from bootsplash, it chucks up an error! Does the new kernel already have this functionality built in and hidden?

Thanks in advance,

Stu

while updating lm-sensors, running sensors-detect I got this warning and no output (I had lm-sensors working b4):
Code:
...
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-viapro' for device 00:11.0: VIA Technologies VT8233 VLink South Bridge
Use driver `i2c-riva' for device 01:00.0: GeForce2 GTS2
Probe succesfully concluded.

We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Module `i2c-viapro' already loaded.
Load `i2c-riva' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no):
modprobe: Can't locate module i2c-riva
Loading failed... skipping.
** Note: i2c-riva module is available at
** http://drama.obuda.kando.hu/~fero/cgi-bin/rivatv.shtml
...

ok... so I decided to emerge rivatv but after emerging it says:
Code:
* You will need support for videodev, i2c-core, i2c-algo-bit
* for this driver to work, plus your cards' specific modules
* from /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/kernel/drivers/media/video
*
* To load the module automatically at boot up, add these and
* "rivatv" to your /etc/modules.autoload.
*
* Also, see http://rivatv.sourceforge.net/ for more information.
*
* NOTE: Your kernel must not include framebuffer support.

:(
I should thank you Narada for your excellent work, infact bootsplash on fb worked perfectly for me...

but now it seems I need to step back to my default terminal... any hint?

I'm having some problems with framebuffering on my laptop AFTER the screen is turned off using APM. The forum discussion about it can be found here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=389992

Hi, on my laptop if I choose framebuffer mode in the kernel, it works, but the text is really tiny because the screen defaults to 1600x1200... is there a way to do framebuffer mode but to have it at say 1280x1024? I am using LILO btw...

Just change your vga= line. Use vga=794 for 16bpp @ 1280x1024.

Can anyone tell me if there are some configs to use bootsplash at 1280x960 resolution rather than the abnormal 1280x1024 :)

I wouldn't mind some suggestions for new themes either, as the default Gentoo one is starting to wear a little thin :(

You can acquire new images by doing 'USE=-kde emerge gentoo-artwork'. After emerging do 'etcat -f gentoo-artwork' (in gentoolkit) to find out where it placed its images. New themes are available also on bootsplash.org.

It just doesn't seem to work. I think manually patching it might, but certainly the automatic patching fails every time with any of the recent ac-sources kernels. I've just resigned myself to the framebuffer until either other kernels start to support my highpoint raid or ac-sources is able to be patched.

What's wrong is that most users are probably using a 2.4.20 patch on 2.4.21 and 2.4.22.X. It's not surprising that it is causing problems. I spoke to TaD (bootsplash dev) on irc about a 2.4.21 patch for bootsplash and he said that he needs time to deal with it so it may be a bit of a wait to get any new patches officially incorporated into portage.

you can add the image to your existing initrd.
If /boot/initrd is your existing intrd then do
Code:
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg >> /boot/initrd

and not
Code:
splash -s -f /usr/share/splash/bootsplash.cfg > /boot/initrd

I've split these posts all from the original topic because they all (save the last) are related to support questions specifically. I was going to move them all to the duplicate forums but then I saw the last post by bheremans and felt like it was worth keeping around. I am locking this thread in favor of the already designated support thread for these issues.
