Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable.
On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?
P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)
Wasn’t that output any helpful? I’ve heard that it is kind of impossible to get that bootsplash and console background on a manually compiled kernel. Well, if that’s true I can try to get used to it
Anyway, I am still waiting for more answers, maybe some experts can do that
I was talking to some guys on the IRC and they told me that I need to “patch” the kernel with that stock bootsplash and background image to get them back on the new kernel and then recompile it again with this modifications. I was browsing some pages but didn’t found anything useful. I have no idea which files to replace. I am quite intressted in that so I’m not giving up yet
It can’t be just me whos had compiled the kernel from sources and want those things back, so I still hope that someone can give me more tips.
