Bootspalsh on slack


I'm sorry about this silly questions.....but I really courious about maki bootsplash on my slack10.2 (kernel 2.6.13)
I have downloaded "bootsplash" package for 10.2 from www.linuxpackages.net and installed....
then I downloaded http://www.bootsplash.de/files/boots....6-2.6.13.diff and make patch to my kernel.....( btw I have ATI driver 8.16.20 installed)

and I follow the howto to enable "bootsplash" on the kernel.........

but I always get an error messages after do "make" on my /usr/src/linux......it said--->
root@darkstar:/usr/src/linux# make
CHK include/linux/version.h
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*

That's really odd. Try issuing just one command inside the kernel source tree.

make bzImage modules modules_install

yea, he said he was using the 2.6.13 kernel and that's a 2.6.13 patch.... You shouldn't be issuing a solitary "make" from within the kernel tree anyway... Whether or not that's a problem, I have my doubts... Still, it's worthwhile to try the command above. It sound like he might hit the same problem when it comes to making "modules"...

I'm with xowl on this one, maybe /usr/src/linux points to the old 2.4 kernel source. It should work if it's the correct kernel.

ahh.. Didn't even think of that. Good point. I never make symlinks anymore in /usr/src because it's never used for anything. Except for the ocassional goofup...

Weird, you may want to try this then:
Quote:
If you get errors during kernel compilation or missing options during configuration do as below.

cd /usr/src/linux/
mv .config ~/kernel.config
make mrproper
mv ~/kernel.config .config
make oldconfig
make menuconfig

Yes, those commands are for "cleaning" the files from previous compilations.
