I've removed BOOT_MSG. Still no go. It says "Initializing the kernel" and
nothing else happens.
One thing I noticed is that:
splash_geninitramfs -g /boot/splash1280x1024 -r 1280x1024 livecd-2007.0
only includes the JPEG images in the initrd image. Things like
"icons/apmd_started.png", "icons/sysklogd_started.png", etc, are not
included. I've included them manually (-o /etc/splash/livecd-2007.0) but
still no go; the splash remains static
The icons are *not* needed in the initrd, they are used *after* the
rootfs is mounted, so they can be accessed right in time.
Yeah, I only tried that in an attempt at shotgun-debugging :P
Please post your /etc/conf.d/splash, /etc/conf.d/fbcondecor
Thanks for helping in tracking down this issue. Here's /etc/conf.d/splash:
In /etc/conf.d/fbcondecor everything is commented out.
# ls -l /etc/splash
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2008-07-14 16:06 emergence
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2008-07-14 16:06 gentoo
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 2008-07-15 10:52 livecd-2007.0

# eselect rc list |grep fbcondecor
(Note that I had to rc-update fbcondecor into boot by hand. The ebuild
did not do this and also didn't mention the existence of the script at
all. The only thing mentioned is there was a change from some older
splash version which doesn't say much for 1st time users like me.)
Meanwhile I switched from uvesafb to the old vesafb to see if it has
something to do with it. Same result. I also re-emerged klibc and
splashutils. No go.
(The kernel has "[*] Support for the Framebuffer Console Decorations"
media-gfx/splashutils (~)126.96.36.199 (1st try)
media-gfx/splashutils 188.8.131.52 (2nd try)
dev-libs/klibc 1.5.8 (1st try)
dev-libs/klibc (~)1.5.12-r1 (2nd try)
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources 2.6.25-r6 (1st try)
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources 2.6.24-r8 (2nd try)
I hope this won't turn out to be a GCC 4.3 issue :P I will emerge gcc
4.1.2 and try again with that.
I'm on AMD64 (if this is relevant.)
