How to change the tux logo during kernel boot


Hi,

I am using Debian etch(kernel 2.6.15) and for quite a while I am using the small tux logo that appears on the top left side of the screen when we boot the kernwl with framebuffer(vga=791). I like it very much. Ofcourse I guess everyone likes that Tux logo...

Now, my question is very simple: If I want to replace that tux logo with my own logo, where do I have to put my own image file in the /usr/src/linux directory before re-compiling again. Also what is the format of that image file(extension,size limit, resolution,etc)

Also is there any way by which I can just re-compile the modulde which is responsible for displaying the image rather than re-compiling the entire kernel.

Thanks

You can download the kernel-patch-debianlogo package then see what the patch does it should just be a matter of replacing the line that references the .png file in the patch file itself. I believe you will have to compile the kernel again here is a guide to doing it the Debian way with the instructions on changing the logo with the debianlogo patch in the Advanced topics.
