Hi, when I install bootsplash it always causes a kernel panic in my Debian Sid system. If I install it and reboot I get an error saying
XFS Bad Magic Number
XFS: SB validate failed.
and my computer halts at that point.
(This is not quite a disaster, as thankfully I took the precaution of backing up my original kernel and my original initrd image).
Searching didn't throw up much of anything - except a bunch of stuff in Russian and some in Chinese. But what I did find was this quote from a Beijing University saying the following: (Google translation).
[quote3.4.1, please do not have to use newest mkinitrd, please uses in the system the original edition. Because new mkinitrd when production initrd document start increase causes kernel panic. If support does not translate ram the disk the essence, that can cause when the start initialization memory plate initrd could not increase (certainly also does not have kernel panic), thus caused bootsplash to expire[/quote]
So from what I can make of that he appears to be saying that recent versions of mkinitrd are incompatible with bootsplash.
So I was wondering if anyone else here had encountered this - or better still had any suggestions on how to fix it?
