Bootsplash dissapears after loading some driver.


Hello, i finally made work my custom kernel with the bootsplash screen, but now i have another issue.

After lilo loads the OS, bootsplash screen appears on the background and i can see the "verbose" text running while my OS loads, but after loading a driver (i think it's the video one, because the whole screen blinks and gets a better resolution) the splash screen dissapears, i mean, background returns to be black, while the kernel loading information is still running (Loading fuse, etc) and time after the tty login appears.

What's causing this issue? How can i solve it?
I'll really appreciate help with this.
Thanks in advance.

Also, i've noticed that in my dmesg i get a conflicting fb hardware error just before the system blinks, updates and deletes the bootsplash screen.

Quote:
fb: conflicting fb hw usage inteldrmfb vs VESA VGA. Removing conflicting driver.
Please, help!

I'm still having the same problem after reinstalling the OS, recompiling a new kernel, and re-configuring it. The same thing, bootsplash shows up, and then the kernel loads another frame buffer driver, gets a new resolution and after blinking, the bootsplash isn't present.

Please, help me find a solution for this!

got the same problem here but only in "silent" mode.
verbose works great since i put /boot in fstab.

Obviously your driver by changing the screen-resolution is flipping away from wherever the splash image got loaded. Is there a way to delay the driver's initialization step until after the boot has been completed?

solved ...
opensuse got all the bootsplashpatches included in their kernelsources.
works fine with inteldrmfb kernel 3.7.2.

happy bootsplashing

update: /proc/splash seems to be broken => no progressbar

check bootsplash.org for further information and utils.
