    OK, figured this out if anyone is interested....

    Somehow the functions are instead being called from /etc/lsb-base-logging.sh so you can remove line 107 in the log_end_message function and insert the following lines:

    Code:
    #            echo "[ ok ]"
                printf '[ '
                $TPUT setaf 2  # green
                printf ok
                $TPUT op  # normal
                echo ' ]'
    Thank me later

    Is there any thought of updating this for Dapper? It's pretty-factor is much reduced now.

    in Dapper the file has changed to :
    /etc/lsb-base-logging.sh

    in there replace:
    echo "[ ok ]"

    with:

    printf '[ '
    $TPUT setaf 2 # green
    printf ok
    $TPUT op # normal
    echo ' ]'

    Hi!

    I am just curious, but is there any way to make the colours bright?

    $TPUT setaf 2 # green
    I suppose, anything in this line has to be added...?

    Re: HOWTO: Spice up your boot text [font resolution and color]

    Hi,

    Earlier i tried to change the bootimage ect. Now all these packages like usplash ,splashy and splashy-themes are a little bit messed up.
    After Grub comes the message "Starting...", then a blank screen and then just for half a secound 2 or 3 colorized lines before the login promt.

    All i want is a black backgound, white text and an [ OK ] in green or a [ FAILED ] in red at the right from directly after Grub until my x-server starts

    Please help me because i really don't have a clou how to do it.

    Daniel.

    P.s.: I have Edgy Eft installed.

    remove "splash" from your kernel options in /boot/grub/menu.lst
