    Wink Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    I have installed splasy with the command:

    sudo apt-get install splasy

    then I had to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    and add the text "vga=791" or "vga=792" the the text string:

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-21-generic root=UUID=3bb7d033-3066-4685-8d56-6c7f791f0b7c ro quiet splash

    So after I added:

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-21-generic root=UUID=3bb7d033-3066-4685-8d56-6c7f791f0b7c ro quiet splash vga=791

    And that worked great, but the progress bar only goes half way, before the kde gui loads up.

    Anyone know how I can fix this?

    I want the progress bar to reach the end before KDE loads up.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    i actually like having verbose mode, does anybody know how to make it always show up? for some reason telling the text box to always show up doesn't do anything. i made my own boot image and i left a space for verbose text. also, how do i get verbose mode to say more stuff? it tells me practically nothing and since i'm working on new stuff it doesn't show enough info

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    I've been having a bit of trouble getting around my nVidia driver with this (at least I believe that's where my problem is). Upon booting I am greeted with a
    Code:
    mknod: /dev/fb0
    spalshy_start_splashy(). Error-3
    message. However, it continues into the splash screen, but flickers abit and does not print any verbose messages (as it should). My FB drivers are as listed below:
    Code:
    ...kernel/drivers/video/arcfb.ko

    I currently have my /boot/grub/menu.lst file written with the following;
    Code:
    kernel	/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-23-generic root=UUID=6168cda2-1b6b-4c0f-839f-18debe95877f ro quiet vesa=791 splash
    Does anybody have any suggestions. I will post any progress I make. I plan to keep modifying my menu.lst file (i.e. vesa -> vesafb, 791 -> 792, etc.) until I get a better picture.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    WOW! I simply changed my command in menu.lst from:
    Code:
    vesa=791
    to
    Code:
    vga=791
    And PRESTO! Works like a charm!

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    @RaveJunkie:
    Yes it does work for x64, I am running 64-bit. I haven't tested it specifically for 9.04 yet, but it works for 7.10, 8.04, 8.10. And probably 9.04

    I got splashy working for quite some while now. first of all I install splashy

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install splashy splashy-themes
    After that I create my boot splash from a picture or I set an existing one.

    To create:
    Code:
    sudo splashy_config -c
    To set one (after creating one you will still need to set it):
    Code:
    sudo splashy_config -s <name of theme>
    Now I need to add the vga=791 (791 = 1024x768, I use this for compatibility with older PCs, change as desired) to my grub.

    Open menu.lst:
    Code:
    sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Change:
    Code:
    kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-generic root=/dev/sdc1 ro quiet splash
    To:
    Code:
    kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-generic root=/dev/sdc1 ro quiet vga=791 splash
    Now the most important before we reboot. Let's update our initramfs to hold our image so Splashy will work.

    Update initramfs:
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -k `uname -r` -u
    After 1 or 2 reboots Splashy should work, it did for me. I hope this helps.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    Apparently, karmic uses grub2.....which does not have any menu.lst, only grub.cfg.
    Even I have been looking for ways to configure splashy on karmic but all the guides use menu.lst.

    In this post i'm using my self-made theme. You can make your own or download another, it's up to you!

    Splashy for Ubuntu

    (1) Download latest splashy package from: http://alioth.debian.org/projects/splashy/

    (2) Install the splashy .deb:
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg -i splashy_0.1.3.svn.2_i386.deb
    (3) Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to add vga=792 (1024x768 millions colors) or vga=791 (1024x768 thousands colors) to your default boot option.
    For example:
    Code:
    title        Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-k7 Default 
    root        (hd0,0)
    kernel        /vmlinuz root=/dev/hde6 ro quiet splash vga=792
    initrd        /initrd.img
    savedefault
    boot
    See codes table below:

    (4) Download my Ubuntu splashy theme from: http://infinito.f2o.org/downloads/ub...y_theme.tar.gz

    You can get more themes from: http://splashy.alioth.debian.org/themes/

    (5) Untar ubuntu theme:
    Code:
    $ tar xzf ubuntu_splashy_theme.tar.gz
    (6) Copy files to splashy dir:
    Code:
    $ sudo cp -a ubuntu/ /etc/splashy/themes
    (7) Edit splashy config file:
    Code:
    $ sudo mv /etc/splashy/config.xml /etc/splashy/config.xml.old
    $ sudo mv /etc/splashy/themes/ubuntu/config.xml /etc/splashy
    That's all! Next time you reboot your computer you'll see splashy in action!
