    Getting error during bootup: /etc/init.d/functions


    While booting Yoper 2 up I repeatedly get an error messages (many times during a single bootup) saying:

    /etc/init.d/function: error in line 11 /proc/splash no such file or directory

    I include the /etc/init.d/function file:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    # Make sure umask is sane
    umask 022
    
    # First set up a default search path.
    source /etc/profile
    
    rc_splash()
    {
        echo "show $progress" > /proc/splash
        progress=$(( $progress + 15000 ))
    }
    Please advise. Thanks.

    Doing a google search I found that you might need to compile options into the kernel for the bootsplash to work. Since the kerner has to create /proc/splash so that it can show a progressing bar etc.

    Thanks for replying. So what exactly do I have to do now? (I'm a relative newbie...)

    You may want to go over to http://bootsplash.org/kernel.html and patch your kernel.
