I've tested your cfg file on a computer that supports 1280x1024 framebuffer. The bad news (for you ;-) ) is that it is working, in silent and in verbose mode.


I wonder if _mikec_ was using that config file in 1280x1024 resolution. In this post the header of the file says "configuration file for the 1024x768 bootsplash picture", but tx + tw = 1117, so the text box is too wide to fit on the screen. This produces the symptom _mikec_ describes of not displaying the verbose splash. Maybe `splash_geninitramfs` should have some error checking for this.

Anyway, _mikec_ emailed me a copy of his artwork & I documented putting a splashscreen together with it, posted on the the Gentoo Wiki. I've been a little rude about Mike's artwork, but it's better than I could've done, so I hope he'll forgive me for that. I hope others may find my notes helpful.

what should i say? Thanks?

anyway what i didn't understand was the fact that you dont like the pictures, why bother using them, there's plenty of more eye-candy backgrounds out there on the net?
Dont get me wrong it's all good that you took my pictures for the WIKI project but i thought you would just comment everything out and keep what i was trying to do, you like the pink color for progress bar? if not why bother using it there's plenty of more nicer colors like #336699. I will have to work some more to finally get a working 1280x1024 cfg file for the dual monitors i have. Configuring these 19" and 17" screens is hard 0_o hahaha, either the Bootsplash pictures are off screen or the shell ain't lined up equally, or.. FVWM2 is off screen.

i took the Linux theme 1024x768 cfg file and did some tweaking, i forgot to remove that line.

Well, I didn't want to do all the work for you :P

When I originally PM'd you it was because I'd spent the last 3 days looking at my own splash.cfg files & I could see the bug in your progressbar (I think, at least). But if I just fix your theme for you - well, that doesn't help the next guy, so that's why I documented it like that.

Sorry if I missed anything that you were trying to do in your original theme - it should be easy enough from that explanation for you to get the splash up & running, then change the position and colour of the progressbar.

thanks for the howto. it will help people understand how to create their own bootsplash theme, including me.

Yeah, but resizing of jpegs is lossy. I can knock up a working config file for you, with comments, in no time... any fear you could meet me halfway & resize to 1024 x 768 from your original BMP?

PS: I take it I am allowed to redistribute these images if I get a splash working for you?

Hello everybody,

I can't compile splashutils-1.1.9.1 and 1.1.9.2:
Code:

  ...
  CC      render.o
  CC      image.o
image.c: In function `load_png':
image.c:179: warning: implicit declaration of function `png_set_add_alpha'
  CC      cmd.o
  CC      common.o
  CC      daemon.o
  CC      list.o
  CC      ttf.o
  CC      effects.o
  LD      splash_util
image.o(.text+0x5be): In function `load_png':
/usr/src/tmp/splashutils-1.1.9.2/image.c:179: undefined reference to `png_set_add_alpha'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [splash_util] ïÛÉÂËÁ 1
[root@barracuda /usr/src/tmp/splashutils-1.1.9.2]

I have libpng provided by my distro and updated with YaST to the latest available:
Code:

[root@barracuda /usr/src/tmp/splashutils-1.1.9.2]rpm -qa | grep png
libpng-devel-1.2.5-182.10
libpng-1.2.5-182.10


I use SuSE 9.1 and there's no libpng-1.2.8 RPM for this distro. What should I do? Any help appreciated.

Well, according to the Gentoo ebuild, splashutils 1.1.9.2 requires libpng 1.2.7 or later. What you can do is grab the source and compile it manually. Or you can use the RPM for another distro and see if that works.

What if splashutils developer provides option to compile utils statically linked against libpng-1.2.8 that is supplied with package? Installing libpng other than supplied by SuSE breaks my whole system. And what about guide on using gensplash on other distros? I still can't get progress bar with SuSE...

I've managed to get splash running, am using verbose mode since the progress bar just doesn't quite do what it should. Problem is tho, that I can only get 50Hz (yes, not even the standard 60Hz). I'm using the vesafb-tng driver on a Radeon 9800 card. Could it have something to do with the fact that my TV-out is enabled by default on boot?

This is the kernel line in my grub.conf:

Code:
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r11 root=/dev/hda8 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 video=vesafb:ywrap,pmipal,1024x768-32@85 splash=verbose,theme:emergence

I've started reading this loooong thread and . . . after I woke up I am still troubled by the following:

1. The progress bar will not show in silent mode no matter what.
2. Adding screen depth and refresh rate at my grub.conf does not seem to make any difference (so I've left it out).
3. The silent emergence picture looks grainy compared say, with the LiveCD.
4. Pressing Shift+PageUp/Down does not scroll the console - is this incompatible with gensplash? (it seems to work OK in verbose mode though).

My grub.conf:

Code:
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-gentoo-r4
root (hd1,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r4 root=/dev/hdb7 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768, splash=silent,theme:emergence
initrd /boot/fbsplash-emergence-1024x768


Obviously it's not clear enough in my head what's affecting what in all this eye-candy-extravaganza and therefore don't know yet what to tweak.

Any suggestions please?

I'm having problems getting any sort of splash image to come up at all. I have splashutils set up properly, my initramfs image made, grub.conf patched; and yet when I boot up all I get are those two penguins at the top of my screen. If I disable bootlogo in the kernel; nothing, just text flying by.

Here is my grub.conf:

title=Gentoo 2.6.11-r2
root(hd0,3)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r2 root=/dev/hda4 gentoo=nodevfs video=vesafb-tng:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-32@70 splash=verbose,theme:emergence
initrd (hd0,3)/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

initrd (hd0,3)/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024


Use splash=silent instead of splash=verbose like this:

Code:
title=Gentoo 2.6.11-r2
root(hd0,3)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r2 root=/dev/hda4 gentoo=nodevfs video=vesafb-tng:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-32@70 splash=silent,theme:emergence
initrd (hd0,3)/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024


If you use splash=verbose it ignores your splash screen config and shows output of the console as Gentoo starts up.

Tried changing it to silent, still nothing. Oddly enough, dmesg gives me this:

Code:
fbsplash: console 0 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 1 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 2 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 3 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 4 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 5 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 6 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 7 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 8 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 9 using theme 'emergence'
fbsplash: console 10 using theme 'emergence'


And yet no console splash...

Here is my new grub.conf:

Code:

title=Gentoo 2.6.11-r2
root(hd0,3)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r2 root=/dev/hda4 gentoo=nodevfs video=vesafb-tng:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-32@70 splash=silent,theme:emergence
initrd /boot/fbsplash-emergence-1280x1024

What you have is I think correct. You're even using the recommended vesafb-tng. Do you get the shutdown screen when you shutdown? I get the shutdown screen and I'm also using radeonfb.

You might also want to try a different theme or regenerate the initrd.

I'm having nothing but problems with fbsplash anymore. For a while my splashes worked and then... they just stopped showing up at boot. For a while, any initrd that splash_geninitramfs created would fail. Now I can boot, but no splash shows up at all until the boot process is done and the splash script runs. This is with the same splash that worked before.

I've (of course) patched the kernel, enabled all the options, created a proper grub.conf, and generated a proper splash from /etc/splash (one that worked fine before).

And hey, now I look over at my screen and it's frozen hard after "vesafb: VBE version 2.0". It booted fine last time, now it froze.

I'm using the 2.6.11-cko3 kernel, and a fully emerged system. I've posted my splash (modified from the 2005.0 livecd splash), my grub.conf, my kernel config, and even my initrd file here. I'm just completely at my wits end.

Youre not alone diamondsw, i have pretty same problem and it seems that i cant figure out any reasonable explanation for this. However, i think it has nothing to do with kernel or intird because default one and emergence are working fine (at least in my box).

Okay, a few other things I noticed that are making me very suspicious of fbsplash...

Even when booted under a vanilla kernel from kernel.org and "splash" removed from my rc-update, I still see "/lib/splash/cache" and "/etc/splash/livecd-custom" (my default splash) when I perform a "df". Why are these extra mountpoints here, and where are they coming from?

I have now switched over to gentoo-sources, and for the first time I managed to get some kernel output from a b0rked initrd. This is the only time such a failed boot has not blanked the screen when it crashes. The final few messages are:

VFS: Cannot open root device "sda4" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

And here's a screen shot.

Now, this is strange since above the ServeRAID adapter is recognized (that's where /dev/sda4 lives), and all drivers, filesystems, etc are all built-in to the kernel.

Unlike previous times, this did not completely corrupt the kernel afterwards, as I thought ahead and marked the whole kernel directory as read-only. When I rebooted without an initrd still no fbsplash, but no corrupted kernel either. Sadly, unlike some of my other kernels and attempts, the splash did not appear once "splash" loaded... Just a lot of pain for nothing. :(

Hello,

I'm close to have it working, I have never been so close before, but now I have a weird error :)

the console gets written smaller, in the middle of the screen BUT rather than having the nice layout around I have a large band in the GREEN color around :?

Any idea about what I could be doing wrong?
thanks in advance for your advices,

ludo

I've been fiddling around with a splash screen this afternoon, and I think I got it to work. The image appears and everything seems ok,.......until the system starts to boot. I can get into the system, but I get a LOT of error when it tries to load things. I mean ALSA doesn't load anymore (no sure what the error is....it flashes by too quickly for me to read it) and there's a lot of other stuff that I can't read. By the time it get's to the point when KDM should load, then I get the NVidia logo appearing, but then it returns to the command line. When I try to run xserver manually, then I get the error that my mouse is missing "pointer device not detected"....../dev/mouse has gone AWOL. Any ideas why this is happening and how to fix it?

Here's my /boot/grub/grub.conf

Code:

default 0
timeout 10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.10-r6
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda3 gentoo=nodevfs video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@85 splash=verbose,theme:Shodan
initrd /fbsplash-Shodan-1024x768


and the hard disk portion of my /etc/fstab

Code:

/dev/discs/disc0/part1          /boot           ext2            defaults,noatime                        1 2
/dev/discs/disc0/part3          /               ext3            noatime                                 0 1
/dev/discs/disc0/part2          none            swap            sw                                      0 0


I've no idea why this would have started all of a sudden, but I did a emerge --update world and emerge --update --deep world and the problem persists.....

I double checked my alsa config to make sure that that's not the reason why it's screwing up, but the config seems fine. Anyways, here's the output that I get when I try to restart alsa:

What exactly does fbsplash do to the boot process? I read on the gentoo-wiki tutorial that if /usr is on a different partiton that it can mess up how fbsplash is used....

Since I've got my /usr directory on a different partition then /boot I did what the gentoo-wiki howto recommended, even though I've got a verison which shouldn't be affected by this problem (I'm grasping at straws here)...

Code:

# cp /usr/bin/fbset /sbin
# cp /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62 /lib
# cp /usr/lib/libpng.so.3 /lib


I tried to do the first copy, but it failed. I have no fbset file/folder. Does the newer version not use this anymore? Any help would be appretiated, my system still can't find my audio drivers (see previous post) and my mouse doesn't get recognized. It's a usb laser mouse, and the laser is on, so there is no connection problem. Any ideas?

Ok, so I fixed my problem.

ALSA: not sure what happened but after reinstalling it works fine.

Mouse: I told xorg to use /dev/input/mice directly instead of /dev/mouse

Works like a charm now.

I pulled the 2005.0 live cd theme off the cd because I wanted to use it with fbsplash. Previously, I had the 2004.3 theme working fine but decided to reinstall. Right now, the 2005.0 theme works perfectly in "verbose" mode, but it is the pits in "silent" mode. In silent mode, the kernel initialization text still appears on the screen and eventually flows the progress bar out of the way. Once init scripts start running, the progress bar flows around the screen again. It eventually appears to freeze during the starting of lo. Sometimes ctrl-alt-del will do a graceful reboot, so obviously something is working right.

Has anyone else figured out a solution to the silent boot problems? I'm not even sure what it could be, so I'll happily run in "verbose" for now :)
