Console bootsplash


Does anybody know how to have a background image in the console. I know it has something to do with framebufer in the kernel but I really don't know how to do it. I'm using gentoo linux 1.4 with gaming sources, kernel 2.4 and I use lilo as my boot loader.

well it's bootsplash.. you already know that i guess. you will need a kernel patch from the boot splash site.

a good configuration guide can be found at http://forums.gentoo.org, just search for "framebugger bootsplash howto"
