Hi all, I'm hoping that someone can help.
I went to the /etc/lilo.conf file and I edited the vga code to read vga=791 because I wanted the 1024x768 screen resolution. I opened terminal became su and typed lilo -v
Now when Mandriva 2008 boots it switches over to the proper resolution but I lost the bootsplash that once existed.
Inside the directory /usr/share/bootsplash/themes/Mandriva-One/images I see that a bootsplash exists for this resolution.
The reason I decided to change the resolution was mainly because in its previous state, the bootsplash was off set to the left side of the screen and figured since kde works fine in the same resolution that might do the trick.
Any ideas how to fix this?
Hi and Welcome !
Post the contents of lilo.conf file here. Have you set correct path of splashimage in lilo.conf?
Thank you for your quick reply Devils_Casper, I have resolved the problem.
Without thinking and being that I was only concerned with editing the lilo.conf file in the area "Label = LInux" since that would be the one I would use most often, I didn't pay any mind to the last label on the list that points to the current kernel, thinking my choice would point to the correct location as a link.

I like to see the activity of the boot in verbose mode, but did not like the plainness of the black screen in which I was giving after my error. I am happy that the results have also centered the bootsplash.
Thank you again for you time.
Well Done ! :) and thanx for posting lilo.conf here. It will help other members having similar problem.
