Description Tomasz Wasiak 2012-01-12 05:17:09 UTC
1. gen_configkernel.sh should check for CONFIG_FB_CON_DECOR in ${KERNEL_DIR}/.config
2. There is no point in appending splash if CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE is disabled, in ${KERNEL_DIR}/.config so append_splash check if it is enabled. This should be done other way - at least oldconfig should be run after gen_configkernel.sh changes ${KERNEL_DIR}/.config to resolve in-kernel dependiences or manual placing of configuration options by gen_configkernel.sh is useless.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Run genkernel --splash initramfs for kernel without FB support.
Actual Results:  
Splash is included in initramfs.

Expected Results:  
No splash in initramfs.
