Description:

Here is an Arch Linux Lilo Boot Screen i´ve created.

Installation:

1. copy the arch-boot.bmp to /boot
2. edit /etc/lilo.conf and add these lines:

bitmap = /boot/arch-boot.bmp
bmp-table = 120p,173p,1,15,17
bmp-colors = 80,,0;255,,0
bmp-timer = 254p,432p,255,107,0

3. run lilo and reboot and enjoy :-)

I do everything what you say and after running lilo it says me "Fatal: bmp-table: value out of range [1,29]"

hm, i´m using 22.6-1. do a 'man lilo.conf' and look for bmp-table and see what values it is expecting.
it should be like this:
bmp-table=,,,,,

maybe try to update your lilo version.

It looks a little grainy at 1024x768. Can that be improved?

your lilo boot screen is 1024x768? as far as i know the boot-image file has to be 640x480x256.
