Help with the bootloader screen.

  • Anonymous - 2010-02-27

    First off, I want to congratulate your excellence in this fine product; it
    would be a steal at twice the price. ;-)
    Well, I have all the desktop cosmetics set almost down to the 'T'. The
    bootsplash and login screen are also quite beautifully Mac-ish. The bootloader
    never shows though; I mean the thing with either a meter or a throbber and the
    Apple icon (I've seen shots of it)--never appears, I just get text.

    Ahh, I just read over (again) the install help .pdf, and saw this didn't work
    in Jaunty at the time of its release. Has this been fixed?

    No, unfortunately this hasn't been fixed yet. I'm short of time these days.
    I'll try to fix it soon. Btw, that doesn't mean that you can't try it! If you
    are able to get it up and working shoot a thread here, I will include your
    work in the pack with due credit to you :)

    I finally managed to get my new hard drive installed and mounted in my system
    so hopefully I'll be able to look into creating an Xsplash before too much
    longer. With any luck we won't have to create a new Xsplash every time Ubuntu
    rolls out an upgrade like we had to do with Usplash.

    @peng: Sounds great! :)

    No, I wasn't able to make it work...Is this a problem with the Mac4Lin
    bootsplash or just non-standard USplash generally?

    The problem is that Usplashes have to be recompiled for each new release. I
    think it's due to kernel changes but I'm not certain. I never was able to get
    a Usplash compiled for Jaunty for some unknown reason (I tried several times
    and each one was borked) and I haven't had a chance to look at making an
    Xsplash for Karmic yet.
