Please? Anyone got it to work with latest sources? :?

(to work = no "invalid format" error at boot)

you have to use the themes that come with the source.

rebuild gfxboot with the useflag themes

Then go to /usr/share/gfxboot/themes
pick one of those but all of them are the same

go into that folder

make

then move the "message" file from the "install" directory I think to the "/boot" directory.

No custom bootguis for us unless we use a downgraded version or one that comes with ubuntu.

Anything is better then the default..

So I did as you said, and yeah, I don't get "invalid format", instead I get "file too big" or "file too large"...

How do I make it smaller?

EDIT: My old theme seems to work with
