Some questions on changing the boot splash of an ISO image
 
I have a Mandriva 2010.2 image that I'd like to play around with.

One of the things I'd like to edit is the boot splash, but therein lies a few unknowns. As I plan to just use a chrooted environment to edit the ISO, I'm not sure what exactly I can do with the image.

Looking at #4 on these instructions, a few questions come to mind

1. Can I run the update-alternatives command in the environment? If not, what should I run?

2. Do I have to manually update initramfs or will that happen once I compile everything back to an ISO image? Can I run the update-initramfs command in the environment or do I have to run a different command?

I'm not going to be trying this today, so an answer isn't urgent.

Sounds to me like, so long as the the stuff you need is in your chroot, you should be fine.
In fact, using them outside the chroot will probably update your local system. (which I'm guessing is not what you want.)

Okay. I'll give things a try sometime tomorrow and see if it works. Thank you!
