    Lightbulb Old slackware boot screen in ubuntu

    Dear all,


    I would very much like to have this old school boot screen- verbose, with Tux icon.

    Would anyone have a suggestion how to do it? I would really appreciate it.

    I've been reading about framebuffer, but got nothing. Someone to help?

    Best regards Renato Lucena

    That looks like LiLo, the Linux Loader.
    Here's an AskUbuntu article: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1354...o-and-its-uses

    It's considered legacy software. Are you sure you want that?

    If you just want a verbose boot, there are a lot of suggestions for GRUB2 here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/3905...e-mode-at-boot
    And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean, all you get is one trick: "rational thinking."
    But, when you're good and crazy? Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! The sky is the limit!

    No need for lilo, Gentoo Linux uses verbose boot with tux.
