Re: [SLE] RE: splash screen

Using a Matrox G450 I was able to add vga = 788 to lilo.conf ran
mk_initrd showed it installed the splash, and it shows....

NOW for the problem, once X boots, I loose all virtual terminals
Ctrl-Alt-F1 to F6 I get a blank screen... Nothing at all on ANY virtual
term except XFree86...

Any ideas?

i tried using the one for 7.3 spalshanim.rpm but no luck, i did not
see appending images to initrd as you said; however i saw something
like rc_splash no found during boot

OK, I'm sorry. It's been too long since I messed with 7.2. I just looked
at the mk_initrd script from my 7.2 DVD, and there's nothing there about
boot splash images. This is how it's done in 7.3, but in 7.2 it seems
it's compiled into the kernel directly.

Perhaps there's something the kernel builders forgot when they compiled
for 7.2?! I don't know.

agree, now i really give up ;-) i'll wait to version 8.0 :-) i guess
