« on: November 24, 2007, 06:05:05 am »
I seem to have lost (or misplaced) my original VL lilo splash screen. according to all my lilo backups it should be
Code: [Select]
bitmap = /boot/bitmap/boot.bmp But there is no boot.bmp there. I liked that splash screen. Can someone help my to find or replace the original VL splash screen?

look for another .bmp file in /boot/bitmap ( it should be about 300 KB ). You can copy it to /boot/bitmap/boot.bmp or make a link to it.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

No other .bmp on the system. I ended up installing 5.8 soho in virtualbox. Uploaded the boot.bmp to an online sever then copied to my /boot/bitmap folder. All works good now. Still I wonder how the heck I lost it. ???
