Still don't understand Lilo bootsplash
I edited the lilo.conf file to read vga=791 to change the resolution to 1024x768 in the appropriate places did the lilo-v command and the default bootsplash works fine upon reboot.
I went to kde-look.org and downloaded a new lilo bootsplash which also is 1024x768. I put the folder into /etc/bootsplash/themes. I then went to Configure your computer and setup boot graphical theme on system where it is listed as a choice, chose it but did not work upon a reboot, instead I got that black screen with the bootup activity in white font.
Looking at the default config file (The one that does work when selected in the configure this computer section) I noticed that it points to the /usr/share/bootsplash/themes directory, so I copied the appropriate folder that is giving me trouble to that directory then edited the config file located in /etc/bootsplash/themes to point to the /usr/share/bootsplash/themes directory like the other default config file that works but making the correction to point to the appropriate folder there.
However this still did not solve the problem, can someone please tell me where I am going wrong? I was thinking about just replacing the .jpg images but I really would like to know the correct way of getting this done.
