Description:

This provides both a console bitmap and silent bootsplash similar to the Lilo bootsplash I posted earlier.

I have only tested this with Mandrake.

Please note I take no credit for the original artwork which was posted previously.

I only added the missing resolutions and console bitmaps along with cleaning up the configuration.

I may have missed the 640x480 console bitmap, but you can easily adapt the 800x600 bitmap for this.

I prefer the slightly visible smaller tux on the right side of a console screen where it is far less obtrusive, yet manages to get oogles from the non-initiated.

Enjoy!

Yes I liked your design quite a lot!

It is my favorite, and it adorns laptops and servers now.

THANK YOU!

It's an honour for me to see you using my bootsplash theme: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=11386

If your machine or laptop is capable of 1024x768 add a

vga=791 to your /etc/lilo.conf to enable the console bitmap.

E.G.

compact
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
root=/dev/hdaX
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdaX splash=silent"
vga=791
read-only

As appropriate for your installation.

BTW: If you wish to speed up your boot, make sure that compact appears in /etc/lilo.conf as indicated.

This dovetails nicely with the GNU/LINUX Tux KDE splashscreen posted earlier, and utilizing the TUX.PNG image as a centered desktop decoration.
