Description Luke A. Guest 2003-02-03 16:39:40 UTC

I've just built a new kernel with the bootsplash patches (from emerge) and
now I only get a bootlogo and not a screen.

Also, there are problems with the depmod command now.

root@rogue portage # depmod -e
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         pci_write_config_byte
depmod:         devfs_unregister_chrdev
depmod:         remap_page_range

depmod:         devfs_register_series
depmod:         pci_write_config_dword
depmod:         pci_write_config_word
depmod:         printk

Is there a way to fix these problems?

Comment 1 Troy Dack 2003-02-14 07:23:39 UTC
What kernel are you currently running and is it a gentoo kernel (it looks like 
I haven't tried the patches against gentoo-sources-2.4.20-r1, I'll try them and see what happens. 
Comment 2 Troy Dack 2003-04-21 10:48:39 UTC
I'm resolving this as "Won't Fix" because there is a newer version of the bootsplash 
patch that applies cleanly to 2.4.20 kernels.  OK, well it applies cleaner than using the 
bootsplash patch that was against a 2.4.19 kernel.
