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,

            Cajus

            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 http://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
