Penguin


I know this seems stupid, but someone I know took the penguin off at the startup of Slackware linux. It's the little penguin picture at the top if your wondering. So could someone tell me how to put him back please. He cheers me up at that big black loading screen!

I believe that's a LILO thing - what your video mode is (framebuffer or not).

pnoguy is correct.. its a lilo setting..


open your /etc/lilo.conf
and find your vga="" line and change it to

vga="791"

i beleive 773 also works, you just have to check the vga settings for 1024x768..

make that change and then rerun lilo


su #get root
/sbin/lilo #reloads your lilo.conf

Well, i think it's only partly a lilo setting.
To be able to watch the console at higher res at all you need support for this in the kernel. At least in the 2.6 kernel there's options under the Devices/graphics support/something.
I think it's something with "vga console" option, where you can add or remove three different logos. I agree, the penguin is lovely!

You also need the configuration systematic writes about.

You need to compile it into your kernel. The Tux logo is just there to show you have frame buffer working. ([*] means enable)

Code:
Device Drivers
+Graphics Support
++Support for frame buffer devices[*]
+++VESA VGA graphics support

++Console display driver support
+++VGA text console
++++Video mode selection support[*]

+++Framebuffer Console support[*]

++Logo Configuration
+++Bootup logo[*]
Although, you could setup a nice bootsplash

Cool thanks a bunch I finally got the penguin to come up. It only took me like two days! I guess I must have kept missing the:

Code:
+++Framebuffer Console support[*]
Oh well, but here's another for you. I got the penguin to come up but now there's this big white bar next to him, about an inch and a half wide, that runs all the way across the screen. Any idea on how to get rid of that?
