Description:

This was a requested splash from a Mandrake user. I currently use SuSE 8.0 and have the same splash for SuSE. If you want to look at SuSE installation, it's posted on this site, but unfortunately, configuration in Mandrake is unknown to me. Sorry, but installation wise, you're on your own.

This is for a different theme, but I am having trouble installing it on mdk9. I followed your instructions exactly. Here is my output:

[root@localhost scripts]# ./switch-themes Matrix
[root@localhost scripts]# ./make-boot-splash Matrix
Can't find images for resolution
[root@localhost scripts]# cd ../themes/Matrix/images
[root@localhost images]# ls
bootsplash-1024x768.jpg bootsplash-1600x1200.jpg
bootsplash-1280x1024.jpg bootsplash-800x600.jpg


As you can see, it says it cannot find the images for my resolution, but all the necessary images are where they are supposed to be. My desktop resolution is 1600x1200 but my bootsplash has been running at 800x600. Any ideas?

It's been a while since I've been here, and as I can see, some people are having a hard time with my Mandrake theme. The reason why: I don't use Mandrake. My native linux distro is SuSE. I received an interesting email today from TGCShooter (A Native Mandrake User) who eplained how to set this up in Mandrake. Here it is:
First, you must create your own theme this takes a little work from Gimp.

Make your Theme (root):
mkdir /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/UrbanVisions
mkdir /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/UrbanVisions/images
cp -R /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/Mandrake/lilo
/usr/share/bootsplash/themes/UrbanVisions

Now you will have to edit the downloaded bootsplash image (2336-1.jpg) that you
got from kde-look.org. Rename the image to bootsplash-1024x768.jpg. Now open
the image in Gimp. Create two new images with the scale and crop tools that are
1280x1024 and 800x600. Save these files as bootsplash-1280x1024.jpg and
bootsplash-800x600.jpg. Move these files into the file
/usr/share/bootsplash/themes/UrbanVisions/images.


run these scripts:

cd /etc/bootsplash/themes
mkdir ./UrbanVisions

copy all of the files from the Mandrake folder in
/etc/bootsplash/themes/Mandrake to /etc/bootsplash/themes/UrbanVisions

/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/switch-themes UrbanVisions
/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/make-boot-splash UrbanVisions

cd /boot
rm initrd-2.4.XX-XXmdk.img
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.4.XX-XXmdk.img 2.4.XX-XXmdk (where X is your kernel
version)

re-run lilo and reboot

Hmm ... If I'm not mistaken, I believe you create a new directory in the "/usr/share/bootsplash/themes/" directory. I'd call it "urban_visions". Then add a folder called images. Place the image file into that folder. Then, go back to the /usr/share/bootsplash/themes and go into Mandrake. Copy the lilo folder to the "/usr/share/bootsplash/themes/urban_visions" folder and you should be all set. After that, I believe you type "/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/switch-themes". Let me know how that goes and if it works, I'll give it a try on mine.

The only thing I can think of, is maybe, its not working being that im using KDE 2.2.2. I can't get KDE 3.0.2 to logout, so for now I use the previus version.

After about an hour of trying to get it to work. I can no longer boot. No matter what I tryed, nothing worked, I guess I stick to the stock one, or none. After all just the clasic text scrolling down the screen is better that the stack boot splash.

I've tried to use rewrutejpeg script, I've tried switch themes, I've tried: mkinitrd --splash auto, --splash 1024x768, etc.
It doesn't wanna work!!! It creates 73kB initrd.img and that's all

I have tryed everything mentioned above, but still no luck getting it to work. Has anyone got it to work in MDK 8.2, and if so how?

Hi

Can you make a debian version ?

There are many things for SuSE / Redhat and Mandrake.

But not for Debian :(


thanks
have fun

I've placed it in /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/Mandrake/images ;-)

Forgot to say in the above post that you have to do the mkinitrd and lilo commands again afterwards

Try this (rather long) command as root:

/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/rewritejpeg /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/Mandrake/images/bootsplash-1024x768.jpg

(all as one line)

I can't set this bootsplash, I use Mandrake Linux 8.2, I've placed this in /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/Mandrake, then I've renamed it to bootsplash-1024x768.jpg ( I've overwrited that original one ).
Later in konsole as root, I've typed: mkinitrd --splash auto /boot/initrd-2.4.18-6mdk.img 2.4.18-6mdk[ENTER], img file has been created successfully, so I've typed lilo and now I have black screen instead o fthat cool splash...

What is wrong I had few others splashes before and everything was OK, maybe I've forgot about something?
