Animated lilo ..

HEY !! I really like that progress bar. You guys in Mandrake can play with it no prob .. out of the box. In Gentoo I had to patch the kernel to enable framebuffer bootsplash with the patch they supply on the website (it's in the portage tree). I currently have this image when I boot.

I found these while rummaging through cooker. You can get them bye doing the following. I don't know if they will work on 9.1, but they are from "cooker"

 

# rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.cse.buffalo.edu/pub/Linux/Mandrake/mandrake/current/i586/Mandrake/RPMS.cooker/bootsplash-themes-1.4.1-1mdk.i586.rpm

 

Also found these on another site.

This one just looks clean and sweet.

I get the following error with both the blue xray and the penguins one:

 

Warning: Int 0x13 function 8 and function 0x48 return different

head/sector geometries for BIOS drive 0x80

    fn 08: 1023 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors

    fn 48: 33525 cylinders, 16 heads, 63 sectors

Fatal: /boot/xray-blue.boot is too big (> 65535 bytes)

 

Here is my lilo.conf:

 

boot=/dev/hda

message=/boot/xray-blue.boot

map=/boot/map

install=/boot/boot.b

prompt

timeout=100

lba32

default=gentoo



image=/boot/bzImage

       label=gentoo

       read-only

       root=/dev/hda3

 

Any thoughts?

 

Edit: BTW am running gentoo...

Phunni, you have to run a old version of Lilo. Don't know why but the latest stable one doesn't work with xray-bootsplash. Look in /usr/portage and install an old version of lilo .. this is going to work.

Did you ever get this working? I can't seem to figure out how you specify which image to have while booting - I have framebuffer working, but it's just a small penguin at the top...
