I have a machine with 256 MB ram...... So that should not be a problem :-)

I've found out that in the directory '/usr/share/splash' a link is created
called 'bootsplash.*' which are linked to the correct picture. When you put
in /etc/lilo.conf your vga on 771 then you get the penguin (that's a
start...) but NO nice SuSE screen...

Another strange thing is when you install with Yast2 there is an entry in
the proc called : /proc/splash. Here you can control again the splashscreen.
But when installing with Yast1 there is no such entry!

So, anyone knowing the answer becomes one of my heroes!

HI Harry,

If you're writting about the Lilo splash screen, you need at least 64mb of

memory before it will work. If you have less only a green box will show at


Give us more details and I'm sure someone can help.
