Hi,
Any splash-theme i use, i get the following error/warning that ends the silent mode and enters the "verbose" mode:

Code:
Setting user font ...
Putfont: PIO_FONT: invalid argument


The same problem i has in 2004.4 and now in 2005.0. Any way to solve this ?
Thanks ...

This is a known issue. I think there may actually be a bug report too. it's something to do with trying to set the font when in silent fbsplash mode. This thread might shed some light on the subject, but i don't think there's a good fix right now, just some workarounds.

Hope that helps
