    Yeah. Some of my other machines show a faded pictures when in text mode, and load the splash screen with out issues. This laptop and my 64bit system dont work.

    Thanks,

    Ok, so after using the yast2 sysconfig and changing the theme from upstream to openSUSE and ran a mkinitrd with no extra settings, I now have a image on the background of the scrolling text. I think I may be 1 step closer.

    We thought we might be close with: vga=0x314

    So with the default settings as shown in my menu but with vga=0x314
    Maybe?

    Sounds like you might be closer

    There are other settings in and around that one I pointed to
    Maybe have a look

    Ok, I dont know how the grub options get changed when you type them in during loading, but when I configured the menu.1st file found in /boot/grub/ and added the vga=0x312 (which is 640x480x24), it worked.

    This was way too hard. I am abit concerned weather I want to change the theme to something that my daughter wants now that it works.

    With any luck, a Novell/OpenSuSE programmer will see this and create a new yast module to configure the grub splash screen.

    Thanks,
    John
