Hi!

Is there a way to change the terminal color to something
else then lightgrey on black at boot time ?

Like Lightgrey on blue ... before all kernel messages appear ?

I'm currently using VESA fb to get more text on the screen.

Cheers!

Check screenshots on The Gentoo Framebuffer, Bootsplash & Grubsplash How-To to see if that is what you want. By the way, this message is in the wrong forum category. This is only for documentation, tips and tricks.

Hi!

Oh, sorry about the wrong forum category.... Thought
it was sort of a tips to be helped with :oops:

Anyway, The Gentoo Framebuffer, Bootsplash & Grubsplash How-To,
is not what I'm looking for .... I just want to change the colors at boot time, not to use a image.

I can't realy help you but I know there is a file in the /etc directory where you can set the colors that you terminal will use. This is IF you have colors, if not you need to use fb for you terminals (vesa or your videocard brand). So it looks like you first have to use fb for your terminal.
