Slackware Kernel Logos


In a recent thread there were some Slackware kernel logos
posted. Rather than hijack that thread, I thought I'd start a new one
in case others have kernel logos to share.

Tux_with_a_pipe was never quite 'Bob' enough for me, so I created a
morph of Bob and Tux. I named him Bux (pronounced 'Buck', no offense
onebuck). His details are not easy to see in the kernel logo, so
I'll post a larger version too.

I've seen some complex instructions for using a custom kernel logo,
but a simple way is to just clobber the default logo:
Code:
 cp logo_bux_clut224.ppm src/linux/drivers/video/logo/logo_linux_clut224.ppm
The kernel logo has Bux with a Slackware logo behind him.
It is the same dimensions as the default kernel logo, and only 76
bytes larger.

This is mine, source png and the logo image.
Clobber the default logo is what I did too,
much more simple.

that is simple,
either create your own kernel logo, or use existing one.
What you describe is just using existing ppm file.
Recently someone here at Slackware, posted set of very nice flat Slackware logos. I don't have link availabe, but this here is not my work of course. I just converted png to ppm.

Anyway, thank you Slackware logo creator!

Here you go!
Thank you Lysander666! (see post below)
