I'm having trouble getting bootsplash to work on my ibook g4 using kernels 2.6.18 and 2.6.20. After patching the kernels i cannot seem to enter the bootsplash-configuration section while configuring my kernel.
I haven't found any information about this on the net except for an old guide (like 2004) here on gentoo forums, but it didn't help me much :(
The graphics card on my computer is a radeon mobility 9600pro and i have unselected the logo at boot.
I'm not using gentoo kernels atm because i don't have gentoo on it, I'm sorry for that... Just hope I won't get flamed now :p
If you think I should ask somewhere else because of this, fine, any suggestion of where?

Thanks in advance

You can still use Gentoo sources, just grab the patchset from the ebuild. This would probably be the easiest way.

I can't really comment too much outside of the Gentoo tools though since I've never set up bootsplash outside of Gentoo, but I'd just follow the commands run by the ebuilds, they're mostly just shell scripts anyway.
