bootsplash + 2.6.5 = no valid ramdisk image... i need an answer please!


everywhere i've looked gives me different instructions, but none work

/sbin/splash -s -f \ /etc/bootsplash/themes/Redmond/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg \ >> /boot/initrd.img

/sbin/splash -s -f \ /etc/bootsplash/themes/Redmond/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg \ > /boot/initrd.img

/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/themes/Redmond/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg >> /boot/initrd.img

/sbin/splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/themes/Redmond/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg > /boot/initrd.img

whether i try with an existing initrd, in which case it says the initrd is incomplete

or if i try with a new one, in which case it says couldn't find a valid image at block 0

any help at all??

i've asked everywhere!!

Do you have kernel compiled with RAM disk and initrd support?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
