    Seamless Bootsplash
    Submitted By: admin Date: June 17, 2013, 03:56:58 PM Views: 1338

    Anyone using the newer Bluestar releases has probably noticed the addition of a new Bluestar bootsplash. Since the installer cannot accurately determine what graphics hardware you're using, the bootsplash will appear, disappear and then reappear as kernel modesetting takes place.

    To fix this anomaly, you must add your kernel graphics module name to the MODULES section of your mkinitcpio.conf file and rebuild your initial ramdisk.

    First, determine your graphics kernel module. It's most likely going to be what's listed as drm_kms_helper in your modules list:

    Code: [Select]
    lsmod | grep drm_kms_helper
    For many of you, this will be i915, or radeon, or nouveau, or via, etc.

    Note: gma500_gfx does not work. Adding this module to your initial ramdisk actually makes your bootsplash not function at all.

    Now, open the file /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and find the line that reads:


    It may be commented out. If so, uncomment this line.

    Add the name of your kernel graphics module to this line between the quotes, for example:


    Save the file.

    Run the following:

    Code: [Select]
    mkinitcpio -p linux
    This should complete successfully.

    Now reboot.
