Description Máirín Duffy 2011-08-29 15:48:58 UTC
Let's update the syslinux theme for live media with the newer & cleaner design. For Live media, this will involve updating imagecreate/live.py to generate the new theme values ( see http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=livecd;a=blob;f=imgcreate/live.py;h=6ad9c5b79626611df49a2b1769dff0f3092c5ae9;hb=HEAD around line 454) ... eventually it would be nice for this to have a templating system I'll assign the bug to myself initially so I can create the template for you, then I'll reassign to the default component owner.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2011-09-02 19:09:10 UTC
Discussed at 2011-09-02 NTH review meeting. Accepted as NTH: it's a slightly dangerous change but we're confident we can test it, and the cosmetic benefit is significant.

Created attachment 521928 [details] screenshot of new syslinux config The syslinux screen that shows up on new live media doesn't quite match the screenshots from this bug. Is that intentional? I like the look of it, but the background that shows up makes it difficult to edit boot options with the white text on the white fedora logo. I attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing with the F16 graphics test day i686 live image   http://adamwill.fedorapeople.org/graphics_test_week_20110905/graphics_test_week-20110905-i686.iso
Comment 9 Brian Lane 2011-09-07 18:31:50 UTC
That will be fixed when the splash image is updated in fedora-logos.
Comment 10 Máirín Duffy 2011-09-08 13:44:20 UTC
Tim, I think spot updated the splash in the fedora-logos package yesterday, so hopefully that'll be readable soon.

Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2011-09-14 18:59:28 UTC
note that we should use 16.6 for the Beta, as 16.5 results in an incorrect background being used, AIUI.
Comment 13 Adam Williamson 2011-09-16 04:46:53 UTC
so, RC1 was a bit of a swing-and-a-miss: the bootloader background is plain black on all lives and the DVD.
