You don't need a patch, its already in gentoo-sources (and some of the others too, like ck-sources 2.4.22ck2)

Your guide is a bit unclear about which kernel will be patched with the
ebuild command. I tried it on a 2.4.22 kernel and had errors. When I
looked at the ebuild script, it seems to patch 2.4.20-vanilla, as it only contains a command with that kernel name used.

Should I use the patches for specific kernels listed at the start of the description? If so, why would I also run the ebuild command to patch the kernel? I got the impression that the ebuild was going to figure out which kernel I have and select the needed patch. This in view of no mention of anything to consider when doing the ebuild to patch.

Please set me straight.

Here are the facts. None of the vanilla kernels have the patch applied by default. However, the ebuild will only apply the patch for 2.4.20 and does not have any automatic detection of which kernel you have. Most but not all gentoo specific kernels already have the patch included. The best way is to first find out whether the kernel you wish to use has the patch or not by checking the changelogs. If it does, great. If it does not and it is 2.4.20 then use ebuild to patch. If it does not and is greater than 2.4.20 then download correct patch version from how-to and apply manually.

Test whether the patch will apply successfully.
Code:
patch -p1 < patch_file --dry-run

Then apply it.
Code:
patch -p1 < patch_file

yo this shit is hot son!

i got it working...looks like im booting off the CD. Now i gotta look into the silent mode. There is another thread that explains how to get teh progress bar to work by passing a number to the script.

Excellent work. Gotta love the eye-candy.

I did later download the 2.4.22 patch listed at the start. Oddly, it had
the same problems on a generic 2.4.22 kernel. It is hunk 2 and 3 in
the video/Config.in file that fail. I saw no obvious reason for this as the context in the patch file is what is in the Config.in file. Anyway, I applied these changes by hand.

Now it works!

My only question is probably more a framebuffer one: how do I control the sync? The image is a bit too far to the left. I know how to do this
in X...

Next is the progress bar.

Thanks for a great job.

(I still think a note on which kernel the ebuild will patch would be a useful addition. Also, is there an option to patch to force it to keep a copy of the original file? I get my Linux/Unix variations cofused. If so, adding that to the ebuild script would make it MUCH easier to back out when patching goes wrong. If patch fails, can you detect the exit code and act accordingly? Other than just 'die', maybe clean up a bit first...)

Still, nice job!

Yeah, I'm looking into silent mode also. I wish it was used by default, but oh well... Anyway. I'm looking for some nice themes. Possible somebody could make a 1024x768 .cfg file for this image? Please? ^_^

What does step 8 do (adding bootsplash) to your default runlevel?

Code:
rc-update add bootsplash default


I rebooted before doing this and everything seems to be fine. I added it anyway, but noticed no difference.

I believe this step enables the bootsplash screen for the first six virtual terminals as opposed to just the first one. Have a look at /etc/init.d/bootsplash to see in more detail.

When I have silent mode activated the virtual terminals 2 to 6 show the silent picture - no login possible. This defeats the purpose of virtual terminals somehow... :roll:

Logging on the first vt is okay...

What do I have to do that I can have silent splashscreen without crippled vt's?

[EDIT] After applying the progressbar patch from the Documentation, Tips & Tricks forum it works fine... Sorry!

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Hi there,
I'm using linux-2.6.0-test9 sources. Once the path is applied I can't find the
Code:
[*] Use splash screen instead of boot logo

option in my kernel menu.

Does anyone know where it is located?

If all is correctly enabled, in 2.6.x series the Bootsplash will appear under device-drivers -> graphics support -> bootsplash configuration.

Thats true but only with the "bootup splash screen" option. If I enable the feature and compile my kernel add the following to my grub.conf:

Code:
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.0-test9-splash
root (hd0,5)
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/bzImage.2.6.0-test9-splash root=/dev/hda7 video=vesa:ywrap,mttr vga=0x318
initrd=(hd0,5)/boot/initrd-1024x768


But I see nothing exept a 1024x768 framebuffer with text scrolling over the screen (the stuff you always see when you boot like mouting... etc.)

I have no idea why it isn't working because I did (well I think) everything as described in the tutorial...

Any suggestions?

There´s only this option for bootsplash itself.
For me only worked the last bootsplash patch from stepan in ftp.suse.com/pub/people/stepan. Previous patches aplly without problems but bootsplash didn´t work.

In the "Personalising your grub splash image" section, the first link is broken(404).

I get the same thing, I'm using linux-2.6.0-test9-mm4, I did notice something about an invalid initrd though, but couldn't get a good look because it flashed by too quickly.

I worked all day on this last week. And what I think is the problem is that you need to remove whatever initrd you have in the /boot partition and create a new one for the bootsplash

splash -s -f yourbootsplashconfig.cfg > /boot/initrd-1024x768 (or whatever you name yours)

after i created that it worked perfectly.


Now, if I could only get DirectFB to work
