A couple of quick questions.


Hello all!

I am running Slackware 10, kde 3.3.2 and kernel 2.6.10.

I just have a few "nit pick" questions. Like how can I get rid of the home and trash icons on the desktop? Second, How can I make the txt at boot small again. After a kernel upgrade the txt is huge. I will post my lilo.conf at the end. And another question is how can I find all the txt at boot up. Cause I have a few errors at boot that are not really causing any problems but I want to get rid of them.

Thanks for all the help I have recived and may recive in the future.

boot = /dev/hda3
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
prompt
timeout = 1200
change-rules
reset
# Normal VGA console
vga = normal
other = /dev/hda1
label = Windows
table = /dev/hda
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda3
label = Linux
read-only
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
root = /dev/hda3
Label = Slack.old

You don't have to switch on framebuffer to get smaller text. Just enable

Video mode selection support under Device Drivers -> Graphics support -> Console display driver support -> Video mode selection support


And then in the lilo file

vga = normal change to vga=ask

Issue the command lilo after modification.

At boot-up you will ask to give a choice of the size of your fonts. You can experiment with the choices given, when you are satisfied with the choice you have made. Get the hex base number of your choice. Convert it to decimal and replace ask with the decimal number.
