Re: [SLE] RE: splash screen
that's your problem. the graphics for the splash screen are in the initrd
file. you need to read up on initrd some and recreate it.

more specifically, you'll have the graphics files somewhere on your system
and these will be copied into the initrd file when you make it. try a man
initrd or mkinitrd... it's been awhile and i'm away from my system right

i tried running mk_initrd and failed

Well mk_initrd is really an essential step in the boot splash thingy. If
it fails I'm not really all that surprised you don't get the graphics.

Did you get any error messages or anything?

using "/dev/hda3" as root device (mounted on "/")
no initrd required
rmdir: too few arguments
Try `rmdir --help' for more information.
