Description of problem:
The Lilo splash screen on Null, which seems to be around 320 x 240 pixels in
resolution, is extremely poor quality - worse than ordinary text mode. It would
look a lot nicer if a 640 x 480 image were used instead. Lilo is more than
capable of using such an image and every modern machine that can display the old
one should be able to display a higher res version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat Null, decide to use lilo
2.Look at the lilo splash screen
The lilo we use only has support for 320x240 256 color images. Higher
resolutions involve actually using vesa modes as opposed to standard vga (well,
unless you do 640x480 at 16 colors). Since lilo is deprecated, this isn't
likely to change in the future.
Cheers, thanks for the prompt answer.
