SubjectRe: Simple, effective boot graphic (fwd)


Interesting. He managed to cut the part of my message
that said that I don't sympathize with the idea of a boot logo,
but if you wanted one create one for yourself then..[read below..=)]

Not that that has any importance or impact besides wasting
bandwith. Anyhow, this gives me the chance to report
something real:

[..]

I get this when compiling in the AM53C974 code. Also, I was wondering
if anybody was going to include the drivers for the Tekram SCSI
cards (available at www.tekram.com) in the kernel?

Best Regards,
