When you run the patch command, it will tell you, which parts of the patch didn't work, and for each source file that could not be processed correctly, it will create a text file with the suffix ".rej" that holds the failed parts (for example kernel/panic.c.rej). You need to look into these files, see what went wrong, and fix it in the sources.

If you don't know C well, I wouldn't suggest trying it.

Hello,

after a couple weeks waiting for gensplash to be unmasked (I burned myself a while back installing masked modules that I don't do that anymore). I installed it on a computer.
The problem I have is that it doesn't show up at boot time :-( At shutdown it shows up just fine though. I even added:

rc-update add splash boot

and all my console now have a nice background but still no nice screen at boot up.

I'm not sure if boot logo has to be turned on or off so I tried both with the same result.

My grub config:

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.8-r10
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r10 root=/dev/hda2 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr vga=0x31a splash=silent,theme=emergence
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

I even tried this:

initrd /boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

and this:

initrd /fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

still no booting screen.

Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for your help.

Ok, sorry if this is a duplicate. I tried going through the forums for the answer to this problem and have not had any luck.

I just upgraded from gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.7-r9 with a working bootsplash to gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.9.

I am trying to get gensplash going as a bootsplash replacement without much luck. I followed the 5 easy steps and when I rebooted all I get is the boot penguin and not the splash screen.

My dmsg (dmsg | grep fb)
Code:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After upgrading to 2.6.9-gentoo-r1 my splash comes to late. It starts when the boot process is nearly done (that means no silent splash). With a 2.6.8 kernel everything worked fine.

:(

Yep same thing here, 2.6.8 is fine but 2.6.9 doesn't load the splash till right before the login prompt.

Do you have a silentpic256 on your theme configuration???... I guess this is the problem, because i have it, and this is another different image than truecolor ones and is the only ones that works as i said before...

I guess only works 8 bits images on the new kernel... :roll:

What do you mean with silentpic256?

Here's my config:

# ttf message output parameters

Anyone have been able to do with full color images???...

It was working to me with 2.6.8 kernel tree... :roll:

So where is the "progress bar" bit of this thread?!

I admit I have not spent more than half an hour so I have not managed to read all 16 pages yet!

I have just got gensplash to work which is great. Next step is the progbar.

TIA 8)

I`ve emerged gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.9-r1 and splashutils too. I`ve followed exactly and step by step the genplash howto from the gentoo wiki website. The gensplash works, BUT:

1) in silent mode the progressbar doesn'nt work
2) (also in silent mode) when I shut down or reboot my computer, the genplash doesn't switch from verbose mod to silent mode.
???

Well, Gensplash works for me with 1024x768-32@85 or 791 resolution, gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.9-r1 and the gentoo theme. The only problem I have is, when the splash changes from silent to verbose exactly before Xorg-X11 starts I have two blinking cursors from the console on my X session which is very annoying. Does anybody how to solve this. With the old baselayout I've never had that problem, neither with bootsplash...

Since the gensplash patch is written to apply to vanilla sources, you have to manually change the sysctl.h to have the line:

Code:
KERN_FBSPLASH=68,


since the staircase scheduler changes some stuff.

Look here:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/current/

fbsplash-0.9-r8-2.6.9.patch

could work for you.

The ck-sources doesn't include neither bootsplash, nor fbsplash.

Does this have any impact on anything else in the ck sources? If yes, what? If no, why isn't that the default?

Also, what exactly does the number mean?

I've got mine working full color with kernel 2.6.9, but I have *no* idea how. It was around 5am after work one night, and I didn't have the comprehension to remember what exactly I did. Now it's the same thing on the wife's computer. If you need any info from me, I will be more than happy to give.

This is because only works in 256 colors. I have not been able to make work with true color in 2.6.9 kernel...

It was working ok in 2.6.8 kernel tree...

Something is buggy... i guess...

(The progress bar doesn't work too)
