i didnt get anything first .. then i recompile my kernel with given instructions here to enable some supports in my kernel. then i start getting a tux on left side of screen when i boot gentoo. no progress bar and not background image while booting.
i have gentoo 2005.0 with RR4 live cd with reiserfs4.
here is my grub.conf
Quote:
# Grub boot menu configuration file
#
# Boot automatically after 30 secs.
timeout 15
# By default, boot the second entry (grub starts counting at zero).
default 0
# Fallback to the first entry.

# Use default Grub Splash image
# splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

here is my kernel info:
Quote:
Ravin ~ # uname -a
Linux Ravin 2.6.11-reiser4 #3 SMP Sat Jun 11 23:37:53 IST 2005 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux


i have splashutils-1.1.9.6, but i m confused as i dont have bootsplash installed in my gentoo... when i tried to emerge bootsplash, it says:
Quote:
Ravin ~ # emerge -av bootsplash

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[blocks B ] media-gfx/splashutils (is blocking media-gfx/bootsplash-0.6.1-r7)
[ebuild N ] media-gfx/bootsplash-0.6.1-r7 0 kB

Total size of downloads: 0 kB

!!! Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be installed
!!! on the same system.


i have fbsplash bcoz when i search i get :
Quote:
Ravin ~ # locate fbsplash
/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1024x768
/usr/bin/bootsplash2fbsplash
/usr/portage/distfiles/fbsplash-theme-emergence-r2.tar.bz2
/usr/portage/distfiles/fbsplash-theme-gentoo-r1.tar.bz2
/usr/src/linux-2.6.11-reiser4/drivers/video/cfbsplash.c
/usr/src/linux-2.6.11-reiser4/drivers/video/fbsplash.c
/usr/src/linux-2.6.11-reiser4/drivers/video/fbsplash.h


i did "splash_geninitramfs -v -g /boot/fbsplash-emergence-1024x768 -r 1024x768 emergence"
i have "/boot/fbsplash-emergence-1024x768" file.

i think i have given al the info abt my system now...
i m noob in this so please tell me where i m wrong with required instructions. i have read most of the posts here related to this but dont get nething.
