    linux boot disable display/framebuffer update


    I want a custom splash screen to be displayed during bootloader,kernel-boot and init phases of booting. I am able to add my logo for u-boot. Rather than customizing kernel to show the same logo, I want to fully disable the kernel from updating the framebuffer/display.

    I tried the kernel command line options "quiet vga=normal nofb nomodeset video=vesafb:off i915.modeset=0" (All together). But this not working. The screen goes black after u-boot.

    I think something like this is already implemented in Ubuntu. When ubuntu is booting, kernel messages are hidden by a color screen. How is this implemented?

    Can someone let me know if this is possible. If yes, how?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    On RHEL / CentOS and similar systems, you can replace /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz with a new compressed image file of your choosing. You don't have to futz with anything else.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
