Hello. i recently downloaded a bootsplash theme called Black_SUSE from kde-look.org. i installed it on my desktop in the /etc/bootsplash/themes folder, changed the theme in yast, and ran mkinitrd -s 1280x1024 and it set the theme fine. i just tried this same process on my dell latitude d830 and it did not take the theme. in addition i am unable to go back to the openSUSE theme that shipped with opensuse 11. when i ran dmesg | grep bootsplash i get
errinok:/home/shaun # dmesg | grep bootsplash
bootsplash: silent mode.
bootsplash 3.1.6-2004/03/31: looking for picture…
bootsplash: …no good signature found.
the output of my mkinitrd -s 1280x1024 is
errinok:/home/shaun # mkinitrd -s 1280x1024

Bootsplash: Black_SUSE (1280x1024)
im not sure but i think that the output was longer coming form my desktop but it also has both the pae and default kernels so im not sure.
also the entry im using to boot my menu.lst for grub looks like this
###Don’t change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###

does anyone know how i can get my laptop to use this theme as well or how to get it back to the original openSUSE theme?
also my monitor is 1680x1050 for my laptop with a nVidia Quadro NVS 140M gpu. my desktop has a dualhead setup using a 1680x1050 and a 1280x1024 with a nVidia 7900gs gpu.
