Talking loading foreground


Hi there!
Is there some way Linux to load with green font color?
I have 'setterm -store -foreground green' in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local
But fonts become green when login mesage appears, and I want font to become green as soon as I select Linux and press enter in LILO menu
I hope you get it
thnx

Hmm, rc.local is the last script executed on startup, or among the last ones... Maybe you can stick that line in some other script that is executes before? But still, that line will load only when the script you put it in is executed. The perfect solution would be to pass it to LILO, but i odnt know if LILO has some options to specify color, to do what you want...
I dunno... sorry

LILO hasn't, maybe the solution is to chage the default font?

And put a coloured font? I dont think that exists.
I have stuck same line as you in rc.local, to see what happens, and i have no idea how to make it load right when booting starts...
I know that SuSE had coloured fonts when booting, so it must be possible, but i dunno how, SuSE also uses SySv scripts, maybe you can make it through that, i really dont know, sorry... Maybe someone else can help you more...

oh.....That's nothing.........I am just asking buddy
BTW, Yesterday I have configured LILO to use different color, I just put this line in /etc/lilo.conf:
menu-scheme=Gk:Kg:Gk:Gk....And LILO menu becomes so wonderful...
If you don't have such thing, give it a try NSKL

you can also try putting your setterm command(s) in /etc/rc.d/rc.M (you should see setterm -blank in there too). that should take care of it at least halfway through the boot process.

hope this helps. :-)
