Linux Progress Patch

The Linux Progress Patch is a kernel patch which displays a full-screen logo with a progress bar and some informational text while booting. It hides the normal startup messages printed by the kernel, and is meant for people that don't care about complicated and possibly confusing boot messages.

    Hi, I suggest using the bootlogo patch

    done by SuSE instead. The lpp stuff hasn't been

    updated for a long time.

    Cheers,

    LPP on 2.4.27
    Is there a way to apply this patch to 2.4.27? The patch doesn't apply cleanly on it.

    Re: Problem with lpp


    Hmm. I haven't looked at lpp for a long time.
    Maybe there's some bug in the image handling. You
    may try www.bootsplash.org stuff. It is by
    far more variable than lpp.


    Greetings...

    Problem with lpp
    Hi, I've a problem with lpp with kernel 2.4.20 on a PC with
    via C3 processor anf LCD display.
    I use grub and all the linux system is internal the initrd (run
    on RAM).
    In the grub boot menu I use:
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz rw root=/dev/ram0 console=/dev/tty2
    CONSOLE=/dev/tty2
    initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=23167

    When the system boot, the image boot screen appear for
    a moment then the system hang with a black screen and
    caps lock and scroll lock blinking.

    I modify some constant of lpp patch because I must use
    800x600 images and the theme that I download has a file
    (definitions-800x600) with needed parameters.

    Someone could help me?

    Thank you.
    Bye, Nicola
