Thread: bootsplash at 1440x900 in 11.2 RC2 ?

  1. #1

    Default bootsplash at 1440x900 in 11.2 RC2 ?

    Has anyone managed to have a splash screen at resolution different than 1024x768??

    I need help with that, i do know that the framebuffer of my graphics card does support it. If i put vga=0x365 in my boot line i only see the boot messages, i want the splash screen Any help would be highly appreciated...

    Well, i found the solution.

    In GRUB boot line i put VGA=0x0365

    The weird thing is that YaST's boot configuration thingy puts VGA=0x365 instead and this one doesn't work...

    Well, at install time I set my video at 1600 x 1200 and when rc2 was done with the install it stick in the bootsplash. No tweaking happened.

    I was also doing that BUT i was putting vga=0x365 and not the vga=0x0365 which works.

    Surprisingly YaST sets the resolution as vga=0x365, maybe i should file a bug?

    I don't recall 1600x1200 being an option. I think 1440x900 was the most I
    was allowed. Something to do with the ATI mess-up again?

    The default to me was 1024 x 768
    Then I change it to 1600 x 1200 before hitting the installation at the boot screen. I used to use 1024 x 768 because it is easy to read but since my monitor is 1650 x 1080 and not in the option I selected 1600 x 1200 and it was carried out by the installer till it finish the installation. Could be a bug too, who knows. I am using intel G33 video card as detected by sax.
