Bootsplash


I'm trying to install a bootsplash but i don't know wich patch I should use. I'm running the 2.6.7-1 kernel on a Debian testing system. Does anyone know where I can find the right patch? I can't find it in bootsplash.de/files/
another question, do I really need to recompile the kernel?

bootsplash.de/files

you really need to recompile the kernel

follow these commands:

1st step - add bootsplash.de/files/debian to our apt sources list
#echo "deb http://www.bootsplash.de/files/debian/ unstable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

2nd step - update our local package list
#apt-get update

3rd step - install the kernel source, the bootsplash patch, debian kernel packaging tools
#apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.7 kernel-package libncurses5-dev kernel-patch-bootsplash -y

4th step - unpack kernel, and apply patch
#cd /usr/src
#tar -jxf kernel-source-2.6.7.tar.bz2
#cd kernel-source-2.6.7 && ../kernel-patch/all/apply/bootsplash

5th step - configure kernel for bootsplash
#make menuconfig
Code maturity level options --->[*] Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers
Processor type and features --->[*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support
Device Drivers --->
Block devices --->
<*> Loopback device support
<*> RAM disk support
(4096) Default RAM disk size[*] Initial RAM disk (initrd) support
Graphics support --->[*] Support for frame buffer devices[*] VESA VGA graphics support
Console display driver support --->[*] Video mode selection support
<*> Framebuffer Console support
Bootsplash configuration --->[*] Bootup splash screen

6th step - compile the kernel and install kernel
#make-kpkg clean && make-kpkg kernel_image
#dpkg -i ../kernel-image-2.6.7*deb

Hey, I've been trying to follow your instruction but I get an error while typing this:
cd kernel-source-2.6.7 && ../kernel-patch/all/apply/bootsplash
bash: ../kernel-patch/all/apply/bootsplash: Filen eller katalogen finns inte (= file or folder doesn't exist)
What should I do?

oops, it's ../kernel-patches /all/apply

so:

#cd kernel-source-2.6.7 && ../kernel-patches/all/apply/bootsplash
