ok, i need help here
I did exactly as you said, the framebuffer worked ok
but the splash, it loads 2 seconds before the kdm starts only...
what should i do to it load since the beggining?

other problem is that, when it loads, it loads all broken, just some pices sliding over others, when im booting down the computer, then its pretty beatiful, but in the start it doesnt loads right...

any idea?

I believe there are bootsplash issues on 2.6.5.

I thoroughly recommend 2.6.6-love4 kernel.

This works beautifully with bootsplash and has working rieser4 and nivia Geforce working as well if you need it.

you and your love kernels ;)

bootsplash works fine on vanilla-kernel 2.6.5, so then it's probably an issue with the gentoo sources :(

looks like your kernel doesn't load it... are you sure that you enabled all necessary options in your kernel (see this topic's first post for those)? I had the same problem, but then it seemed i forgot to enable ramdisk and rdimage (doh) support in the kernel :oops:

I have the bootsplash set to the high res version of Emergance linked above. I can get it to load properly, but as soon as I reach the login prompt, it drops me back to the standard gentoo background from the old livecd setup.

Any pointers on how I can keep the Emergance bootsplash all the way through?

yes but now you don't have the background enabled for all VC's, only the 1st :oops:

You should configure Emergance in your /etc/conf.d/bootsplash file so that bootsplash will use the right theme :)

I really like the Gentoo-themed bootsplash offered here http://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/bootsplash/ but I was kind of annoyed by the large empty space at the bottom of the screen where some kind of logo used to be. Anyway, here's the updated configuration file:

Code:

# This is a bootsplash configuration file for
# theme SuSE, resolution 1024x768. See
# ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/stepan/bootsplash for
# more information. Comments are welcome by stepan@suse.de

# config file version
version=3

# should the picture be displayed?
state=1

# fgcolor is the text forground color.
# bgcolor is the text background (i.e. transparent) color.
fgcolor=7
bgcolor=0

# (tx, ty) are the (x, y) coordinates of the text window in pixels.
# tw/th is the width/height of the text window in pixels.
tx=25
ty=28   
tw=979
th=718

# ttf message output parameters
text_x=204
text_y=544
text_size=26
text_color=0xeef4ff

# name of the picture file (full path recommended)
jpeg=/etc/bootsplash/geren/images/bootsplash-1024x768.jpg
silentjpeg=/etc/bootsplash/geren/images/silent-1024x768.jpg

progress_enable=1

overpaintok=1


Just copy and paste that over your existing /etc/bootsplash/Emergance/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg file and do the rest of the steps to make your initrd and you'll have a 1024x768 bootsplash that will take up all of the screen except a 20px margin around the edges.

BTW: You can easily edit the other config files to fit a higher resolution display. PM me if you need any help figuring it out.

with my expirience with a Toshiba M30-801:

Code:
default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo 2.6.5-r1

kernel (hd0,1)/boot/kernel-2.6.5-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/hda4
initrd (hd0,1)/boot/initrd-2.6.5-gentoo-r1

# With both framebuffer and bootsplash
title=Gentoo 2.6.5-r1 FrameBuffer
root=(hd0,1)
kernel=(hd0,1)/boot/kernel-2.6.5-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/hda4 video=vesafb vga=0x360

# initrd=(hd0,1)/boot/initrd-1280x1024

title=Windows XP

Finally, I've managed to get my bootsplash working, but it's suffering pretty badly from jpeg compression artifacts. The original was bmp format (grabbed from a windows XP desktop), which I converted using imagemagick's convert command, but it won't work if I specify a high quality image with the -quality switch. Has anyone got any ideas why this is?

Here's my current console background:

Now everyone thinks I'm using windows...

Ps. Sorry for my english :oops:

Brilliant!

This is my first Gentoo install and I've been messing around for ages trying to get a hi-res framebuffer, without success. Then I stumbled across this post, followed the instructions, and it all just worked!

If only I'd seen this sooner... I think that this merits a link in the FAQ forum, if not the installation documentation itself.

Anyhow, many thanks to all the contributors, it really helped out.

I created a bootsplash theme that has 6 images instead of 1.
It's configured so that you can type on the whole screen.
All the pictures are darkened and text-removed so that it's not to distracting to work.
I created it on my gentoo system, so it works with gentoo.
You can get itat kde-look.
