I got to thinking "Why don't we have our own Grub bootsplash for Puppy?" Why not! So here is one to get the ball rolling. Put the following lines in your Grub menu.lst file and download the attached file and copy to /boot/grub directory.

Code:
color black/cyan yellow/cyan
shade 1
viewport 3 2 77 22
splashimage (hd0,0)/boot/grub/puppy.xpm.gz

Of course you need to substitute your Grub bootfiles location in (hd0,0).

Have fun. Razz

We did have a few Grub splashscreen for 1.02 and 1.03 I think it was
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BootScreen

Some of those screens are available - I think I have seen them in unleashed. Maybe someone will know

At the moment we have straight text (as you may have noticed)

Incidentally I made you provisional head of Community Edition development (as per your request on the wiki)

Those are for the CD's splash, not Grub. Grub's menu is the one that lets you choose between windows, Puppy, and whatever else is installed. You only see it when booting from a frugal or full HD install, not from the CD. And even then it's only if you use Grub for that (sometimes Lilo is already installed if you used certain other distros before Puppy).

Whoa! "Provisional head"? Couldn't I just be a provisional arm, leg, foot, finger or something? Shocked

I haven't tried that in anything recent, so I can't guarantee it will work. My main projects right now are school and Pizzapup. When I finally get a final version of Pizzpup 3.0 finished, I plan to work on that bootsplash.
