    i had yoper a while back and i remember the splash images being located in /boot (or maybe a subdirectory of /boot). i'm guessing you can just edit those image fles, or replace your own ones with the same name(s).

    hmmm..., i think it was v2.0 that had it in /boot. a google search of all combinations of "yoper" "boot" "splash" and "screen" doesn't return any useful results. i don't know...

    I believe it's in a file called

    /proc/splash

    Unless that's just the image of the progress bar. I had to have the text-based install, and therefore, I have no bootsplash screen. I just end up with scrolling text and a repetetive error, at the times it would be running a bootscreen. The error, from my searching, is concerning this /proc/splash. Which apparently was never created due to my 'undefined number' for my monitor.

    the error reads :

    /etc/init.d/functions:line11:/proc/splash no such file or directory

    I am just wondering here, but if that doesn't work, you may be able to point line 11 in /etc/init.d/functions to the image of your choice.......(?). Since line 9 says rc_splash

    So, try there.

    Hope this helps.

    Code:
    /proc/splash: no such file or directory
    suggests that bootsplash support was not compiled into the kernel... /proc/splash is a virtual file created by the kernel and used to send bootsplash events (move progressbar etc.) to the kernel framebuffer. I get this error too, i'm using 2.1.0-4 anyone else getting this? any ideas why?

    I would try fix this myself, but I booted Yoper for the first time 5 minutes ago so I don't know my way around the setup yet.
