Linux logo during the boot time


after i've installed Debian, it came with kernel 2.4.18. during the boot time there was a nice Linux logo in the top left corner of the screen. in addition to that, in text mode, font was much smaller than it is now, after i've built my own kernel 2.4.25. i know that it's not very important thing, but it looks cool anyone knows how could i enable that again?

If you have compiled the kernel with support for doing it, then add a line like
"vga=788" into your lilo.conf (If U use lilo) to get smaller font. but bewarned!! If U have NOT done that, then you get only black screen!
I'd edit the lilo.conf and do a "backup" there before trying it...

about the logo? No idea, it's a "disto-built-kernel" that U had, and the new is a standard one..
(had 2.4.22-10mdk before, With the logo, now 2.6.3 without it...)

In the 2.6 series kernels it can be found at Device Drivers >> Graphics Support >> Logo Configuration. You will also want framebuffer console and VESA framebuffer and Video Mode Selection Support ( found in (...) >> Graphics Support >> Console display driver support).

About the same places..."Graphics Support" something. They are similarily named.

And where would that be as far as editing via command-line?
I don't use KDE or any desktop manager.

Read the kernel HOWTO, plus there are lots of different walkthroughs for configuring and building your own kernel all over the net. Try www.google.com/linux.
