Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

apt-get install debian-patch-debianlogo
unzipped debian-logo-2.6.2 and placed in /usr/src/linux
performed patch -p1 < /usr/src/linux/debian-logo-2.6.2
all seems well, no errors...
no listing in choices as I can see in kernel config
installed new kernel with patch in place
after reboot, nothing...
what'd I do wrong
While I'm here any help with kernel-patch-lpp. Since I was unable to decipher my problems with debian-logo I did not proceed to try to install this patch; however, I was and am still able to patch the kernel with an ACPI ddst/initrd patch with the same patch command...
any suggestions as I'm trying to create a eye candy but functional system on an Inspiron 8200 w/loads of tweaks and removable modules (hdd, zip, floppy, ...), C/DockII, and others
do like my bootmessages, but wondering what if...
Thanx! in advance! Visit my earlier thread to help me out with a firestarter that all of a sudden goes bonkers after an upgrade...go figure
nope, the patch appends perfectly and appears in config...check above for location
may try 2.6.4 or 2.6.6 on a new SID Build
on lighter side was able to apt-get install boot-icons, a very clever graphical status monitor of the init process. Modifies the init-scripts to post icons along side Tux in boot/init process using framebuffer device that signals completion of motherboard (ram, chipset, cpu, blah, blah, blah), disk & filesystem checks, network connection, ...
awesome, no need for lppp or elppp for i can see nice graphics in 1280X960 while still seeying the boot messages scroll down. Nice!
Hope someone will continue to help however with the debian-logo patch for 2.6.2 inside 2.6.5 (done manually) so my icons will be debian then switch to Glowing Tux then the rest of the icons across the top of the screen during boot.
of course, but i install the patches manually and separately using the debian tools of kernel-package including make-kpkg kernel-image
and dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.X-Custom10.00-i386.deb or something like that
when configuring i do see the option for the replacement with the debian logo and have unchecked the others and tried
will be trying with another installation as soon as I download, burn, and check the sarge netinst.iso so that my linux.old will be 2.6.3
Basically i've done the exact thing you did earlier, yet i have the swirl debian logo when booting.
Anyway this is how i've done it.
First i 've downloaded the zip file (not the .deb file) kernel-patch-debianlogo_1.0-9.tar.gz and extracted it in the /usr/src/ directory. In here you can find the diff file debian-logo-2.6.2 (closest to my kernel version 2.6.6) which i've patched into the kernel. From /usr/src/linux (or whatever symlink you use) patch command ' patch -p1 <../kernel-patch-debianlogo-1.0/debian-logo-2.6.2' to apply the diffs to the config. In make menuconfig=>device drivers=>graphic support=>logo configuration=> select Debian GNU/Linux Open Use logo (new).
After make-kpkg clean | make-kpkg --append-to-version -blabla kernel-image you can dpkg -i blabla.deb and boot with this new kernel now suporting the Debian logo.
For some reason the original kernel-patch-debianlogo.deb didn't work for me, but this solved my case.
