That is fbsplash.<br>It uses a vesaFB patch for the kernel.<br>Usplash will probably be able to have a higher resolution/color but wont have a console mode.<br><br>GFXboot is just a patch for grub. It makes it look like suse but allows you 640*480 resolution.
<br>It is nice but loads a little slower then the normal grub.<br><br>Cheers.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">2006/8/29, Who <<a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>>:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
Hi all,<br><br>I tried SUSE the other day and noticed that they have some rather nice<br>themeing going on on their system consoles (I.E the things you access<br>using CTRL+ALT+F?). They have an image at the top and use higher
<br>resolutions for the text - I'd like to do similar on Ubuntu.<br><br>I don't know what they use (low google foo today, it seems), but I<br>divined that Gentoo do similar with 'gensplash' (or fbsplash, to be<br>precise) (
<a href="http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/">http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/</a>, SUSE used<br>to use 'botsplash' (<a href="http://www.bootsplash.org">www.bootsplash.org</a>) and may now use gfxboot.
<br>Fedora, iirc, don't have the funky console themes.<br><br>My question is, can the new usplash do it too? Can we do it with<br>Ubuntu - beacause it looks really cool and makes the console look a<br>lot more user friendly - it has a more "hey, look at this thing I'm
<br>obvioulsy supposed to use" feeling instead of "whoops, this looks<br>complex and weird, better leave well alone" - not the attitude we<br>want, I think. It definitely adds that oh-so illusive 'polished' feel.
<br><br>PingunZ, I see from an Ubuntu Forums thread you have experience in the<br>gfxboot world: you know whether it themes the consoles?<br><br>Should this go to ubuntu-devel too?<br><br>Who<br><br>--<br>ubuntu-art mailing list
