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 http://www.bootsplash.org stuff. It is by
far more variable than lpp.

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

you need to divert the text to another console you can do this by adding to your append="" in your lilo.conf, add something like append="console=/dev/tty2 CONSOLE=/dev/tty2" rerun lilo and you should be all set.

ok you patches for 2.4.16 looks pretty cool, but i get the text that comes up when starting
up printed all over my bootscreen. it starts at about half dont the screen (that means
somewhat further down than it did when i had the penguin. the progress bar is though
working. the text and the progress-bar kind of try to overwrite oneanother.
anybody any suggestions?

Patches for new kernels and other stuff here!
I have been doing some private work to use the patch for my job. I have created patches for 2.4.12 and 2.4.16 and also a script to fix the linux_logo.h from themes for old kernels. My private repository is at:

http://lwzclan.org/lpp/

Enjoy

Re: later kernels?
I think it's disappointing that they do not seem to be working on their project anymore. I have sucessfully built the lpp patch into kernel 2.4.6. It requires a bit of looking at the patch - and finding where it goes in the modified source code, but it is possible. I could maybe make a patch for kernel 2.4.9(And maybe later versions). I also wrote a program for my own benefit - doesn't ALWAYS work yet - that'll take a theme linux_logo.h file, and the dimensions, and produce a jpg image out of it, so then you can actually see what it looks like full screen without recompiling your kernel every time you want to check it out. Anyways, I'll see what I'll end up doing. Later.
