Ok, nvidia-kernel compiled now that removed the rivafb. Still not getting the progress bar. Reinstalled splashutils and will see how that works.

When you configure grub, I think you need to have the "silent" option there in order to see the progress bar... You also need a theme that has an image file for the "silent" option, so try to run the emergence theme first.

I think I figured out what's causing my laptop to crash on bootup... Using vesafb works fine, though then fbsplash complains and doesn't start, while vesafb-tng seem to cause the crash. So I guess it could be either vesafb-tng or fbsplash that the graphic card (km400 S3 unichrome) doesn't like.

Gentist Thanks for the reply, already had silent there. Here is my grub line. Not that progressbar really matters, doesn't come up until about 1/2 or 3/4 into the boot process anyway.

Code:
title=Gentoo-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 GenSplash
root (hd0,5)
kernel /bzImage-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/hda7 gentoo=nodevfs dc=ide-cd ide0=ata66 ide1=ata66 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768@65 splash=silent,theme:emergence
initrd /fbsplash-emergence-1024x768


:D :D Found the problem!!

Everything worked but the progressbar, that problem was my mistake. Didn't have the color resolution set correctly.

Changed 1024x768@65 -----> 1024x768-32@65

Just forgot the '-32'. Rebooted and works great now. 8)

My design to get it worked including progressbar:
Code:
genkernel --udev --no-bootsplash --menuconfig all
CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_VGA16=m
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
CONFIG_FB_VESA_STD=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y
CONFIG_FB_3DFX=y
CONFIG_FB_3DFX_ACCEL=y
CONFIG_FB_VOODOO1=m
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_DUMMY_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_FB_SPLASH=y

Here's my grub.conf record:
Code:
title=Gentoo Linux kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 Local
root=(hd0,0)
kernel=(hd0,0)/boot/kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc real_root=/dev/hda2 video=vesafb:ywrap,pmipal,1024x768@60 splash=silent,theme:default vga=0x317

Hi all.

I'm working on the utilisation of gensplash in the GeeXboX. GeeXboX (www.geexbox.org) is a standalone media player, with a full operating system, running under Linux and based on the excellent MPlayer.
The last version ( 0.98 ) is compiled with kernel 2.4.x, but the actual developper branch using a 2.6.8.1 kernel.

I have made all to make gensplash work with it, but there is still some problems :
When the system is booting (with syslinux), and just after the initrd is loaded, linux comes in 800x600 resolution, but there is no background image !!
I must launch "/sbin/splash_helper 1 init 0 0 s default", in the first lines of init script to make it work, but it's not immediately, and it's not cool.
If I not launch /sbin/splash_helper manually, the /dev/fbsplash node doesn't exist after booting, so I expect splash_helper is not called as it must by fbsplash_init function in fbsplash.c ...

After this, splashutils works perfectly, with splash_util and fbtruetype.

If I could have some help by expert developpers, it should be very nice !
Thank you :)

I have a problem with fbsplash. It seems to be setup properly. I do get the splash screens etc etc.

There's one problem.

When start up, after i select in grub. the theme comes but, and then it just gets stuck there. It freezes, it doesn't move or anything.
So i press verbose, i see "fbsplash: swaitched splash state to 'on' on console 0"

Thats all. It doesn't move at all.


however if i reboot, and then grub starts i select the entry, but just when my theme starts i press F2 (versbose), it shows the "fbsplash: swaitched splash state to 'on' on console 0" text, but it also carries on booting. It starts absolutely fine, except in verbose mode.

When i press halt or reboot, it shows the splash screen just fine. This just occurs when booting.

I tried many different themes. Dont think its anything to do with that.

Hi

After my last (and first) post, we have test the vesa-tng patch, and now (it's miraculous), gensplash works perfectly, after the 1st second...
I don't know why it won't work with vesafb, but the problem is corrected..

Thank's to Spock and all people who have made fbsplash and splashutils ;)

hawk072 what is your default resolution in X , monitor resolution, and videocard ?
And can somebody tell me why my 15' monitor + Nvidia Geforce4-mx440-with-AGP8x + 1024x768 gensplash craches to no gensplash + lowresolutional framebuffer ? (800x600 works normally)

Sorry I took so long to respond. I forgot about this thread.

My default resolution in X is 1280x1024 with an 85hz refresh rate. The gensplash screenshot is running at 1280x1024@85hz. I'm running a Geforce 4 Ti4200 128MB and using a 19" Sony Trinitron G420S monitor. I didn't do anything special to get it to work. No patching or anything. I just upgraded to the latest gentoo-dev-sources kernel and followed the following guide.
http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/gensplash-in-5-easy-steps.php

Here are the lines of my grub.conf.
Code:
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:ywrap,pmipal,1280x1024-32@85 splash=silent,theme:emergence
initrd=/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

I'm not sure why yours is not working at 1024x768. I guess I was lucky that it worked exactly the way I wanted. The only other thing I would like is to get the splash to be in true color instead for 16bit color. I can't get any better than 16bit.

just like to share my experience real quick...

I own a dell inspiron 5100 with a radeon 7500 mobility chip. I couldnt get gensplash to work at all with vesafb or vesafb-tng compiled in. I finally got it running by using the radeon framebuffer driver and the radeonfb command in grub. It was advised to use vesafb(-tng) but this is what worked for me.

One problem though, about 3/4 through the boot process, output starts to come across the screen even though its in silent mode. Any ideas?

I have installed gensplash on two computers, one a P4, and the other P-M laptop (IBM t42). It works on the P4 and is gorgeous, however I am having terrible problems getting it to work on the laptop, though they mainly center around the baselayout update.

I updated baselayout to 1.10.4, and now it seems init has disappeared, as well as shutdown, halt, and reboot. At this point I have no idea how to gracefully restart my system. I tried gensplash with baselayout 1.9.4-r3 which actually works on the P4, but results in a blank screen on the laptop.

Any ideas?

Have you tried editing /etc/conf.d/splash-SPLASH_VERBOSE_ON_ERRORS="no"?


Here's my problem: I recently have been switching back to an older kernel version which I'm not using gensplash, just plain old vesa framebuffer. I removed splash from default run level but after all of my default run level scripts have run I get this:
Code:
Failed to open /dev/fb0 for reading
Can't open /dev/fbsplash


Why am I still getting an error related to fbsplash? Do I have to unmerge splashutils?

EDIT:unmerging splashutils got rid of the errors but that is kind of a crappy solution.

Yes, gensplash supports boot animations. I know.

Does I need "bootsplash" package to be installed for boot animations ("bootsplash" package contains fbmngplay utility that is used for playing animations)?
And, if it is neccessary to install "bootsplash", which is the order of installation of "bootsplash" and "splashutils"? I think, first "bootsplash", second "splashutils", but I can install them only in reverse way, first "splashutils", second "bootsplash" ("bootsplash" package blocks "splashutils"), but I think this is not a working combination.

And, I have a problem with initrds generated by splash_geninitramfs. My system can not boot with such initrd. Everything works fine with initrd from genkernel. Can I combine in some way initrd from genkernel and initrd from splash_geninitramfs? Or, maybe there is some another decision?

Hi all,
This may not be the best place to ask but hopefully I can get some answers from here.

I just finished building my gentoo from stage 1 with 2.4.26-r9 kernel it seems that the menu is different fom the one described earlier in this thread. How do I add support for a graphic card that is not listed in the menuconfig? My card nVidia Riva TNT 32MB, it's one of those cheap OEM video card for average desktop.

Anyhoo, I would like my system to look like the it was when I boot using livecd. Was that gensplash or bootsplash? What components do I need? I need to emerge framebuffer don't I? And what kind of parameter do I need to pass to the kernel?

Thanks again

Dear gensplash developers,

can you please explain what exactly should I do for successfull migration from bootsplash to gensplash on a distro other than Gentoo? Packages from http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/current/ seem to be Gentoo-specific, and they do not work out of the box with SuSE, for instance.
What I did and reached already:
first I eliminated bootsplash from my setup prior to trying gensplash. Then I unpacked plain 2.6.8.1 kernel, patched it with fbsplash and vesafb-tng. Then I created nice KDE theme for 1280x800 with GIMP (indexed to 240 colours, PNG). SuSE 9.0 does not use udev or devfs, just plain /dev, I had to guess by myself of how to create /dev/fbsplash - finally I got maj & min numbers from /proc/devices (10 - misc) and /proc/misc (63 - fbsplash) and mknod'ed it as:
Code:

crw-r--r--    1 root     root      10,  63 2004-08-20 19:17 /dev/fbsplash

After compilation went successfull (I placed all the stuff in right places and followed every single word in howto) I get complete freeze when trying to boot in silent mode (one with progress bar, splash=silent,theme:kde3) - I get silent splash screen displayed but no further booting, I can even press F2 and get screen changed to verbose, but system is still frozen. When booting straight to verbose mode (splash=verbose,theme:kde3) it boots fine with splash on background. I tried both vesafb and vesafb-tng, they work both for me. My hardware is limited to 1280x800 at 8bpp VESA framebuffer (nVIDIA GF FX5200Go 64MB, 1280x800 WXGA), so native resolution setup for me is vga=0x360 for vesafb and video=vesafb:mtrr,1280x800-8@60 for vesafb-tng. What should I do to get thing working?

PS: Also I suppose I have to amend my /etc/init.d/rc script in order it to supply /sbin/splash with proper $spl_* variables:
Code:

gensplash' /sbin/splash:
progress=$(($spl_init + ($spl_count) * ($spl_rate - $spl_init) / $spl_scripts))

SuSE 9.0 /etc/init.d/rc:
#
# Initialize boosplash progressbar variables
#
runrc=/etc/init.d/rc${RUNLEVEL}.d
prerc=/etc/init.d/rc${PREVLEVEL}.d

SSC=($runrc/S*)
case "$SSC" in
    *\*) sscripts=0 ;;
    *)   sscripts=${#SSC[*]}
esac
export sscripts
if test "$PREVLEVEL" != "N" ; then
    KSC=($prerc/K*)
    case "$KSC" in
        *\*) kscripts=0 ;;
        *)   kscripts=${#KSC[*]}
    esac
    export kscripts
fi

if test "$PREVLEVEL" == "N" -a "$RUNLEVEL" == "5" ; then
    export progress=16
    sscripts=$(( $sscripts+15 ))
else
    export progress=0
fi

SuSE's rc script is customised for bootsplash and uses sscripts/kscripts/progress variables, how can I adapt my exsisting rc script for gensplash' /sbin/splash? Or can you post Gentoo's /etc/conf.d/rc script here?

I am sorry, I can't make gensplash work.
Can somebody explain how to install gensplash step-by-step using genkernel?

No nead for bootsplash. Gensplash worked nice.
But if you use old video-card framebuffer-tng w'll frease your computer.
Use old framebuffer and inird by genkernel.

I got gensplash working, and ported over my favorite bootsplash theme with the automagic converter thingy, but is there a way to test my new settings (I changed font size and colors) by displaying the silent splash screen without rebooting?

My videocard is:
Code:
[root@hydrargyrum /home/pioneer]$> lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] (rev a3)

But where are theme files (jpgs etc.) for kernel during boot in that case? I think, they are stored in initrd but, if I use initrd from genkernel, there are no theme files in that initrd because I told genkernel to --no-bootsplash.

Ok i am experiencing the same problems with MooktaKiNG, i have a 2.6.9 nitro kernel compiled for my acer travelmate 800lci (radeon 9000M) with vesafb-tng and vesa compiled i tryed both of them but i still have no luck.
My system boots fine, but if i don't press F2 while booting (verbose mode) and stick on the silent mode my system stops responding (instead of getting a loging prompt i get a framebuffer image). If i choose the verbose mode everything works ok. Anyone having a clue what my problem is?

Anyone notice that it takes a long time to switch between virtual terminals? I have successfully installed gensplash on two boxes and in both it takes 1-2 secs to swtich vts.
