What kernel version are you using? Pre-2.6.9 kernels have a bug in linux/fb.h that prevents splashutils from compiling successfully.
Comment 3 Kenneth Jakobsen 2004-10-31 07:10:00 UTC
I'm using the reiser4 enabled livecd from the love sources guys. (I need reiser4)
And the kernel is 2.6.7 based.
But if it's a kernel issue, i'd better go bug the love sources fellows?... ;)
Comment 4 Michal Januszewski (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-31 07:41:31 UTC
Definitely. BTW, as you can see on, there are no official fbsplash patches for 2.6.7..

Marking as CANTFIX since there is nothing that the Gentoo devs can do here.
