Hi Dennis,

Now that edgy is almost out I got some time left and started
experimenting with usplashes. I follow the tutorial on the usplash
documentation wiki. These are the steps:

cp yourimage.png usplash-artwork.png
pngtobogl usplash-artwork.png > usplash-artwork.c
gcc -Os -g -I/usr/include/bogl -fPIC -c usplash-artwork.c -o usplash-artwork.o
gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.o -o

I completed the first and the second line commands and managed to
build the "usplash-artwork.c" but after that I stuck.
When I issue " gcc -Os -g -I/usr/include/bogl -fPIC -c
usplash-artwork.c -o usplash-artwork.o"
I get the following error;
usplash-artwork.c:1: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or
'__attribute__' before 'has'

How should I proceed? Could you help me out.  Be gentle because I am a
