KDM re-install causes background probs: VL5.9
« on: January 01, 2008, 04:34:36 pm »

VL5.9 Gold. I had to re-install the kdm-small and kdmtheme-Bela packages on VL5.9 due to some problems I had when removing the nVidia driver (don't ask, my problem). Everything is OK but now I get that ugly BSOD blue colour during the kdm boot and when the system leaves kdm and starts booting xfce. What could be the problem there - any way to get it back to the nicer bootsplash pre and post kdm loading?

IIRC the kdmrc is set to use that blue as a BG you can either set it to black or use the same BG as kdm to get rid of the blue
