This will sounds dumb but........(X related)


Is there anyway to change the color of the ugly blue screen that X loads just before bringing up the login splash for either Kde or Gnome? In my case I turned the splash screen off so I get a big ugly blueish screen (wich I would like to be black) until the desktop loads. Im running Redhat 9, with XFree 4.3., and blackbox.

I know this sounds redundant but That screen drives me nuts.

no, it's hard coded into that release of X, sorry. slightly newer relases don't have any splash screen at all, whch is nicer, from the delightfully titled "die die die" patch.

and why is that fact that yourt question sounds dumb somehow more important than what it's about? please try to use a more useful thread title next time, thanks.
