I think you forgot something between. There's more than a dash, It's called live. And we all are enjoying it at the moment :-) - Oct 21 2003

I'm realy not a friend of Bush's actual politics and I think we should search for a better solution than war in this conflict as long as it is possible.

However, I don't like the usage of Nazi symbols in this context, they're misplaced. - Feb 12 2003

USB memory stick icons

Icon Sub-Sets by sunfire 7 comments

it's no problem to use these devices. you just have load the usb-storage kernel module. in order to activate the device during your pc is running you will also have to install the hotplug package.

I'm using Debian for which a ready to use hotplug-package is available. For SuSE I know it's available, too.

If everything is installed correctly the USB memory stick will be made available as the first free scsi device (most times /dev/sda) which you can mount with

mount /dev/sda /mnt/usbhd

Or better make an entry in your /etc/fstab:

/dev/sda /mnt/usbhd auto noauto,rw,user,exec 0 0 - Dec 27 2002

Debian Lilo Bootscreen

Various Stuff by sunfire 4 comments

I realy don't know. There are patches for graphical grub menus, but i haven't tried it yet. the grub coming with debian is not graphical.

if you can get more information on how an image can be used in grub i would be interested. i personaly like grub much better than lilo. - Aug 29 2002

Do I understand this correctly: Harleckin used for his original image the tool from http://www.13thfloor.at/Software/lilo-splash/, which will create a 256 color image which already includes all the information like position of the text-box and the colors. This image can easily be inserted by only adding a message= line to lilo.conf.

Bad that this only works with SuSE. For Debian you should go another way and use the image above, then editing the lilo.conf to add the position and color of the text-box. Basicly this is done with these commands:

bitmap=/boot/gnulinux-16.rle.bmp
bmp-colors=14,,0,9,,0
bmp-table=220p,120p,1,15,17
bmp-timer=210p,390p,0,0,0

I haven't tried the values above, just assume they will be ok. hava a look on the lilo.conf manpage for details. The timer is optional, it will show the remaining time until the default is booted. - Aug 29 2002
