Bug #145

Updated by robgar 10 months ago

Hi,



I've tried to enable a bootsplash with 1.5.2 and 1.5.3, following

http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=splash&section=4, but it

didn't work.



This is an excerpt of my /boot/defaults/loader.conf:



[..]

splash_bmp_load="YES"

splash_pcx_load="NO"

vesa_load="YES"

bitmap_load="YES"

bitmap_name="splash.bmp"

bitmap_type="splash_image_data"

[..]

module_path="/;/boot;/modules"

[..]



The bootsplash bitmap is in place, too:



-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  481078 Apr 14 16:07 /boot/splash.bmp



 When I boot, I didn't get a bootsplash. I get, as expected, the selection

menu for DFly's boot options (e. g. with acpi, without acpi, ...) and after

selecting one, I get the usual boot messages on screen. The necessary modules

are loaded at boot time:



Id Refs Address    Size     Name

 1    8 0xc0100000 400a08   kernel

 2    1 0xc0501000 3068     splash_bmp.ko

 3    1 0xc0505000 55b8     vesa.ko

 4    1 0xc0580000 5ed0     snd_ich.ko

 5    2 0xc0586000 1d884    snd_pcm.ko

 6    1 0xc05a4000 c2c8     if_iwi.ko

 7    1 0xc05b1000 59064    acpi.ko



The problem was already reported a year ago

(http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/bugs/2004-04/msg00138.html), but

obviously with no solution, so take this as a reminder ;-)
