would be nice to give better title, "HELP ME" gives no information.
So do you want to change the font/color of the messages printed during the boot?
I think that requires some practices, so not really a job for a beginner. But you may give us more details and probably we can give you better help.

You need to make more informative titles. Imagine if everyone on this forum used "help me" what a mess that would be.
Anyways google brings up several hits on how to do this.

If you have any specific questions will be glad to answer.

If you're new, you should REALLY install the latest version of CentOS, not an older version. Things have changed, and it's easier to learn a current system, than an older one then learn the differences.

That said, read the "Question Guidelines" and "How to ask a smart question" links. Saying "HELP ME" tells us nothing, and you need to do basic research first, before posting. Also, your question isn't clear...what are you talking about when you say "text and color of services"??? You mean when things scroll by as they load, saying "OK" or "FAILED"??

More than six hours later and no update from OP? Mods should trash this thread.

General recommendations would be for posters to wait at least 24 hours for replies on their questions, such as in the case of an OP posting something and their expectations as to whether or not there will be replies.

Also from our Rules section:
Quote:
While almost every question does get an answer, we cannot guarantee a response. If your thread does not receive any responses, it will automatically be bumped twice.Threads should not be manually bumped without including additional information.
Excellent advice from others advising OP to revise their topic title and review how to ask effective questions. However appearing to taunt the OP (who may have posted a question at the end of their day and might be away for several hours, or longer) is not appropriate. Please understand that we are here to be helpful and friendly. While myself, as well as many of our members do realize that there are occasions where OP's fail to follow up, we should not project this behavior upon them.

Please consider this as you move forwards with replies on technical threads.

To also be very clear: Moderators and site administrators do not trash threads unless they are spam or illegal content.

I'm not sure, but I think that would require modifying the code for the kernel. Not something I'd attempt, personally.
Why do you want to do that?

Is this homework?

First, I am not your 'bro'.

Second, your instructor must be a total idiot, since ANY version/distro of Linux has 'full access' to all the files. With the exception of Red Hat and SuSE enterprise, ALL of them are free. So there is zero reason/need to load something old. You should get a different instructor/class, since the one you have is that incompetent.

As scasey told you, you'll have to modify a good deal of C code. Look at ply-text-progress-bar.c, and after you modify it, recompile everything and hope for the best. Personally, it's pointless and is pretty risky.

And don't post screen shots, but post text and a clear question; others can't search an image to get help they need, which is the whole purpose of a community forum.

there were some questions posted in this thread. Would be nice to reply, what you answered usually contains no usable/additional information.
