Description:

Just another Slackware Linux bootsplash ;)

Installation instructions are included, so don't worry.
The theme was originally created by Brenton Leighton, I did some changes to it and re-release it now on kde-look.org.
If you like the progress bars, you might not like this theme - I removed support for those because they don't work precisely anyway.
I hope you enjoy it!

Ok I got my framebuffer running at 1400x1050 resolution fine and when i attach the initrd.splash ramdisk at boot, the vesafb module reports somthing like this:

vesafb: error decompressing splash image >error 6>

Any Ideas?

Maybe I forgot converting one of the images to a special format type; please see 'dmesg' for the complete error message and tell me if it contains something like "ycbcr 221111 (9)".
If you want to you can contact me via email: shutdown-at-brend-dot-org

I'll do some checks on my own, but because my monitor won't go higher than 1280x1024, I can't be sure to find the problem myself.
Please stay patient ;)

Should be not a too big problem...I'll do it today, so just sit back and wait for the release ;)

As I cannot run that hight resolutions, I am not quite sure.
But I think it is this:
vga=0x343 # 1400x1050x24
vga=0x342 # 1400x1050x16

If you can run it successfully at this resolution, I will include this values in the INSTALL instructions.

this the best slack bootsplash I've seen so far !
could you please make a 1280x800 version (that's a laptop's 15.4 inches monitors)?

vga=0x360 (1280x800)

thanks :)

Very very nice slackware boot screen but what is the lilo VGA code for 1400x1050. I have a Radeon adapter and have never been able to get a framebuffer resolution that high. (works in X though)
