one flaw I see in the guide is to put an image in initrd
Code:
/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/default/config/bootsplash-1280x1024.cfg > /boot/initrd-1280x1024
messes up the initrd should be
Code:
/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/default/config/bootsplash-1280x1024.cfg >> /boot/initrd-1280x1024

this way you can attatch as many resolutions as you want

Hi, the guide says I shouldn't select a framebuffer boot logo. However there appears to be no way to deselect it in kernel 2.4.26. Has anybody got any ideas on how to resolve this?

I don't think it matters as my kernels have all 3 boot logos enable and the bootsplash works just fine

yeah that worked great thanks. The only thing is, how do I get it to go silent? ATM I can still see text. Not that I want to obscure my text console forever - I just want to be able to hit f2 to see it when I choose.

I've gotten bootsplash to work in the psat but this time it isn't working for me. I finally got it to work with out providing any vga=*x**. It works withouth that but when ever I put a vga= in it tells me I passed a illegal parameter. Tried two diffrent kernels as well same problem.

How do I fix this so I can change resolutions

Thanks a lot for the response man.

The only thing is when I try to install the patch i get this error message:

Code:
* WARNING: You do not have any version of the baselayout package
* supported by this script. The versions should match, because I
* have to patch some files out of the baselayout package
* (/sbin/rc, /sbin/functions.sh, /sbin/runscript.sh, /etc/init.d/halt.sh).
* If you want to proceed, I will make a backup of each file
* (/sbin/rc~, /sbin/functions.sh~, /sbin/runscript.sh~ /etc/init.d/halt.sh~)


I checked and indeed none of those scripts are there. How do I get them back so I can safely run the patch?

Yep I'm ahead of you on that one, unfortunately this is the message I get after emerging base layout. (I also did an etc-update in case you were wondering).

If you have any suggestions at all, please fill me in.

if your su into console try "su -" instead. I got all the animation working without the patch or atleast I can't ever remember patching it. I got the config and mng file off mandrake 9 or something like that.

Well I'm working as root. So that doesn't apply. As for the rest, if there is another way, do you mind being more specific about how you did it? Also you don't happen to have the config file you mentioned do you? How exactly would I use it anyway?

I put animations.cfg in with the bootsplash config files under /etc/bootsplash/gentoo/config and put the mng files go in a dir called /etc/bootsplash/gentoo/animations
Code:
early stop:bootanim stop
fsck start:bootanim start hdd.mng
fsck stop:bootanim stop
bootnetwork start:bootanim start net.mng
bootnetwork stop:bootanim stop
kbd start:bootanim start key.mng
shutdown:bootanim kill; bootanim start halt.mng
master:bootanim stop


If you have /sbin/fbmngplay you shouldn't need patch

Erm.. we are nearly there... you mean you put the above code into a file of it's own called animations.config? And then you got some .mng files (frome where though, if you don't mind me asking) and put them in a file called /etc/bootsplash/gentoo/animations? And that's it? That's all you did? I mean lierally, you stopped at that point and didn't do anything else? I think despite my post count you are going to have to assume n00b status. Isn't there something else you have to do to get gentoo to actually play these animations? Like for example somehow intergrate your instructions with the instructions for getting bootsplash going?

I know it may be a pain in the butt, but I would appreciate it if you would lay out exactly what you did step by step.

Also I think it would be helpful to many people if you did this if the original author of this thread then added your instructions to his original post.

The whole point of bootsplash and a framebuffer for me is to have a progress bar. It may seem like a trivial thing, but the intention is to not intimidate my boss when i show him a fully completed and hopefully aesthetically pleasing gentoo install. If I can get him using Linux at home, maybe he will eventually make the switch in the workplace too.

If it helps I do have that file you mentioned.

the animation doesn't work although the progress bar does and the patch is dated last year and wants an old baselayout to get the progress bar you can use the bootsplash config files and it should work if you append splash=silent but if it doesn't try

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

# 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

Oh... I'm starting to get a bit sick of it to be honest. Just what do I have to do to get a progress bar? I built an initrid using your config above. Nothing. I followed all the instructions to the letter at the start of this tutorial. Nothing. I copied the initrd from the live CD. Nothing. I tried every initrd in /user/share/bootsplash. Nothing! I tried patching with the progress bar patch, the patch didn't work. (Or at least it threatend to mess up my syystem if I tried it).

I am stuck.Is there such a thing as a 2.4x kernel with the progress bar patch already built in?

Please don't think this is because I haven't configured my bootsplash correctly - as I can see an image underneath my test.

Basically what I see is pretty coloured text in a square box with an image of tux in the top right of my screen.

What I want is not to see anything, except a pretty picture and a progress bar.

You wouldn't think that I've been trying to do this for three days now. Just a progress bar!

Nuts I know.

Finally I got it working! It would have helped a lot if someone had just mentioned lilo. All I had to do was append splash=silent to LILO and then it worked normally.

Lol, well anyway I now know quite a lot about bootsplash - so maybe there's an upside.

The only thing is, now I want to do it in reverse order. I have a progress bar on startup - but is it possible/feasible to have something similar on shutdown too? It doesn't have to be a progress bar. Just a simple image will do.

There is only one part of the bootsplash thing I don't like - and that's the couple of seconds or so when the frambuffer closes and waits for X to start - where you briefly you still see the text. Call me a perfectionist if you want, but is it possible just to have a dark screen at this point, or is this switch over just something I will have to live with?

No, I don't have bootsplash at all. My question is: can I get the boot logo to work with 2.6.x? Right now the howto says to disable that option, but isn't there a way to get a nice pretty logo?
