Splashy description Download

Splashy is a boot splash program that doesn't require patching the Linux kernel. Splashy project paints graphic images directly to framebuffers using libdirectfb.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
VGA settings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024
256 colors 768 771 773 775
32K colors 784 787 790 793
64K colors 785 788 791 794
16M colors 786 789 792 795
-----------------------------------------------------------------

For 1024x768 at 16bit (64K colors or "thousands of colors") you could pass an argument to the kernel like:

vga=791

These values could be used in base16 also (hexadecimal) like:

vga=0x317

To pass arguments to the kernel, you would need to edit your boot-loader:

1. Grub /boot/grub/menu.lst
hint, in debian, look for "#kopt" and append vga=0x317 to that line. Then run update-grub. Other distros edit the kernel root= line appropriately
2. Lilo /etc/lilo.conf
hint, look for the default image= and edit append= by appending vga=0x317 to it
3. Quik /etc/quik.conf
on PPC machines. Append vga=0x317 to the kernel argument line

Why splashy_config give me this error
"splashy_config: error while loading shared libraries: libdirectfb-0.9.so.22: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

if you say that the requirement is libdirectfb-0.9-24?

How can I resolve it?

The least you could do is explain what this is before making me download it; providing a screenshot would *especially* be useful if it is a Graphical App (GUI), and would still be helpful if it is a console app. This is general advice
