Description:

This is the 16 color version of harleckin's excellent lilo bootscreen. All credit's should go to him, I just used GIMP to reduce the 256 color version to 16.

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.

Hi

Can you give me the entrys for debian lilo ?

I really like this bootscreen, very neutral.

If you don't have them, how can I find them out. Is there a tutorial about that ?

thanks
have fun
Felix
