    Lilo Splash screen

    I'm trying to get a splash screen to work. But all I get is some wierd acsii characters when my box starts. I think I got my lilo config setup ok but it wont work. Here is a copy of my lilo.conf:

    Code:
    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    prompt
    timeout=150
    #message=/boot/cube-800x600.jpg
    #menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
    message=/boot/message
    #message=/boot/bootmess.txt
    lba32
    default=Linux
    
    image=/vmlinuz
        label=Linux
        read-only
        root=/dev/hda5
    
    image=/vmlinuz.old
        label=LinuxOLD
        read-only
        root=/dev/hda5
    What's wrong with it?

    hi gmoreno,
    here is my lilo.conf file - my file is a type of .pcx - not a jpg. it is homer simpson too i simply have my file named message instead of homer.pcx - if you want it let me know.

    Code:
    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    prompt
    timeout=150
    message=/boot/message
    linear
    default=lin249
    
    image=/boot249/vmlinuz
        label=lin249
        read-only
        root=/dev/hdb1
        append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
    
    image=/boot247/vmlinuz
        label=lin247
        read-only
        root=/dev/hdb1
        append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

    Re: Lilo Splash screen

    How could a jpg be viewed at that point? There are no display drivers loaded. ???

    Re: Lilo Splash screen

    Not sure what is wrong i did a:
    cp Homer2x.pcx /boot/message and ran lilo rebooted and the pic just wont show.. I have lilo version 22.1

    I have revised my /etc/lilo.conf up above to look more like pharris's lilo.conf

    Re: Lilo Splash screen

    hum - just tried it to on my debain box (also using lilo 1:22.1-6) and it did not work either... it did work on my redhat box (which now uses GRUB)...

    let me have some looks.
