Question where do i get "boot-bmp.b" so i can change lilo's picture?


i have lilo 22.5.9 and im trying to change lilos boot screen, but everybody keeps saying to add the line "install=/boot/boot-bmp.b" in lilo.conf, the problem is that i have no boot-bmp.b in my /boot dir..

does it create the file when you add the line and do "lilo"?? or do i have to get it from somewhere?

I think that just by passing a 640x480 16bit bitmap in bitmap= argument you achieve what you're trying to do. (Comment the line that says message= since this two lines can't be togheter).

I've just found this directory on my system: /usr/doc/lilo-22.5.9
There you can read README and README.bitmaps and also see inside the sample subdirectory where you've some sample bitmaps

Update: I tried this feature, I've a graphic lilo selection now
I just simply edited /etc/lilo.conf, i commented the line #message= put a line with bitmap=/usr/doc/lilo-22.5.9/sample/ins64a.bmp
Then I run: lilo -v -v
All seemed fine, rebooted and it was there
