I don't know what im doing wrong. Im trying to use the livecd theme and it just wont work. I can get the beginning kernel messages not to display and then the welcome to Gentoo screen but thats as far as i get. I don't understand what im doing wrong. Splashutils compiles fine so i know thats not the problem. Anyone got any suggestions? I have to go to work right now so ill post my kernel .config and yaboot.conf file when i get home from work.

Thx for the reply.

I didn't think that the framebuffer splash was supported on non-x86 arches. I thought that that is one of the reasons for the new uvesafb that is included in the 2.6.23 gentoo-sources kernel.
