The answer is at bugzilla: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103272
We have to use themes from src.rpm - but the question is: which src.rpm should we use?
And how to decompress them to typical theme files?

download http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/suse/src/gfxboot-3.3.23-2.src.rpm
use util rpm2targz to convert it to archive, unpack and you'll see directory with themes.

PS see my posts above for more details

Thanx, it worked but honestly speaking, these themes looks lame :? Do you know if some other themes would work with grub-097? They gotta be <164 kb, am I right?

All ebuild of gfxboot seems to be broken with the masking of virtual/x11.

Any source for an update ?

ok. i've updated gfxboot ebuild at least
see bug tracker for details.

if portage will not find src.rpm file during emerge, just see which version really exists on http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source/suse/src/ and rename your ebuild

Has anybody found or made another better (especially menu at bottom) theme for gentoo,
because I posted that compiling the normal gentoo theme did not work... ?

why you don't want to do it yourself ?
there is detailed manual with gfxboot how to make build-script for theme.
only you need is get standard theme, exchange background image with yours, change coords in common.inc and build it.

Maybe because anybody else has already done an awesome gentoo theme.
Anyway I just still have no time to write a new one,
I hope some time gentoo will include such a theme :)

Whenever I want to make the usual gentoo gfxboot theme,
I get the following error (included the whole log):

Code:
Sa-Matra gentoo-krystal-gfxboot-0.1 # make
[...]
Including "keymap.sl.inc"
Including "keymap.sv.inc"
Including "locale.inc"
Undefined words: bootloader, blend2, usernote, biosmem, getinfo, fade, fadein, bootdrive, findmode, getvideomode, updatedisk
make: *** [bootdir] Fehler 10


I have the most recent versions of both gfxmenu and grub installed (mentioned in bug tracker),
refering to the last replies to this thread, large menues should be possible ... doesn't seem to be :x

Please help me, or request further information.
Thanks in Advance.

gentoo theme will not compile because of API changes in recent versions of gfxboot.

default suse message file have size > 300kb and it must work with latest grub from bug tracker (patchset must be 1.5)

I felt, like it's a duty for me, because no one else was making or sharing any new gfxboot theme of gentoo.
I forgot to mention: It's free for all, so also free for further edits or shares. :D

Have a nice day or gfxboot-theme *g*. :wink:
