bootsplash not working >> always using verbose mode


hi,

i'm using Open Suse 10.2, i'm trying to change the boot screen using kbootsplash.

the problem i have is that when the system boots (from grub) it dose not load any bootsplash, it just used the basic verbose mode.

i'v checked grub and it dose have the command splash=silent
i have checked to make sure the theme dose exist in /etc/bootsplash/themes
i have checked that the value in (sys/sysconfig) system>boot/theme is correct.

can anyone help me out with this problem?

cheers,
Philly

OK i found the problem

in the config file, for example /etc/bootsplash/themes/splashname/config/bootsplash-1280x1024.cfg ,theres a line at the bottom, LOGO_CONSOLE=vt ,delete this line

now open a konsole and run the following command
mkinitrd

and thats it, its working

see it helps to brake things! all i got to do now is fix grub because i broke it while trying to fix this problem

cheers,
Philly
