Hi all,

I have installed F-10 on several machines. A HP proliant, a T42, and a Dell D620

On the T42, when it's booting, there's a nice graphical (kinda like a blue planet exploding :) in the lower right. There is also a back splash with the Fedora logo (centered, and smallish), with a progress bar (centered) just below

On the other 2 installations, There's this quarter inch / 2cm high progress
meter bar that spans the width of the screen.

I'd like to get the what I see on the T42 (splash screen, graphical UI) on my
other installations.

I've tried copying the grub files from /usr/share/grub/i386-redhat/, reinstalling the MBR.

I've checksum'ed the files in /boot/grub, and aside from grub.conf, the files are bit for
bit, byte for byte identical...

I can't see what's causing/allowing the T42 to have the fancier boot screen...

Anyone know about this?

All the best,

- -Greg

google plymouth boot screen work arounds ;-)

Simply, add a VGA= statement to your kernel line in /etc/grub.conf. On my T61 it's 0x318. If you add VGA=ASK, it'll prompt you with a list of resolutions and depth.
