it took me some time until I found out how to make _working_ .lss
files for syslinux.
So, here is the (rough) howto, maybe you like to include it
in an FAQ.
- Use a paint tool "gimp" (if you know how to handle it)
to create the boot logo, keep in mind that it
will have (at the end) only 16 color.
- make sure it has 640 width.
- save it as gif
- use the tool :
mogrify -colors 16 boot1.gif
- Then check with giftrans the colorpalette:
giftrans -l boot2.gif
Pick a white entry and swap it with the palette entry 7.
because 7 will be used as the text color.
eg: giftrans -g 11=7
Then use giftoppm and make a ppm file, now you can use
the ppmtolss conversion program in syslinux.
