Bootup with the Gentoo 2006.0 logo

When you boot from the 2006.0 LiveCD you see an awesome Gentoo bootlogo and progress-bar -- and you wish you could impress your friends with it during your usual bootup? Here we go:

Note: splashutils only work on x86 and amd64 architectures perfectly at the moment. Support for ppc is in progress.

Check your kernel-config to make sure that "Initial RAM disk (initrd) support" is built in. You can find the option in "Device Drivers" --> "Block devices" --> "RAM disk support".

Furthermore check that you are using an appropriate framebuffer for your video-card ("Graphics Support") or stick with the VESA-framebuffer. Usually splashutils should do the checks during the emerge-progress, but we want to be sure. Now tell your bootloader that it should load the initrd with the 2006.0-splash: The reccomended way is Device drivers/Graphic support/support for bla bla/VESA vga/vesafb-tng. Check it is vesafb-tng and not only vesafb|-

(x86 only I guess) As well you need Device drivers/Graphic support/console display.../video mod && framebuffer console... DO NOT click boot logo

Then we need to emerge splashutils and splash-themes-livecd:

Code Listing 1: emerge splashutils and splash-themes-livecd

# emerge splash-themes-livecd 
splashutils is a dependency of splash-themes-livecd

Now we have to create an initial boot-disk. You are free to change the resolution to your choice, but choose one that is available as a config file in /etc/splash/livecd-2006.0/

Code Listing 2: Creation of an initrd with the 2006.0-splash

Be sure that /boot is mounted before you call the command 
# splash_geninitramfs -v -g /boot/splash-livecd-2006.0-1024x768 \ 
  -r 1024x768 /etc/splash/livecd-2006.0

Code Listing 3: Configure the bootloader

# nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf
First change your kernel-boot-line to something like this (depends on 
your used framebuffer and further kernel-parameters): 
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.16-r6 root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:1024x768-32@72 
  splash=silent,theme:livecd-2006.0 quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1 
You must use more than 8bpp (in this example it is 32, 
specified by 1024x768-32@72).

Add the following line to your kernel-config:

initrd /boot/splash-livecd-2006.0-1024x768

Now we have that nice bootup-splash installed. Finally we want a permanent Gentoo statusbar at the bottom of our terminal-session, like on the LiveCD. Therefore we have to change the default theme in /etc/splash:

Code Listing 4: Change the default splash

# cd /etc/splash 
# rm default 
# ln -s livecd-2006.0 default

This splash should be started after bootup has finished:

Code Listing 5: Add splash to the default runlevel

# rc-update add splash default

If you want to finetune the splash-theme, you should have a look at /etc/conf.d/splash. Happy Gentooing!

Thanks to Michael Januszewski for his work on splashutils and Nicholas D. Wolfwood for the 2006.0-theme.

P.S. emerge bootsplash-themes for more themes than just the install logo.
