I have followed some online instructions to change the GRUB boot screen from the annoying bright blue default one in Fedora Core 6. I made a .xpm image with only 14 colors, and then I gzipped it to splash.xpm.gz and put it in the /boot/grub folder. I rebooted, but there was no splash screen, it was black!
What's going on? I also replaced the other default splash to another folder, so I can restore it if at all necessary.
