Before proceeding we need to change the image pixel resolution for this purpose we should have “ImageMagick” software installed on the Linux system. Now let’s perform. I have taken UxTechno Logo as splash screen image.
- Covert the pixel depth
convert -depth 8 -colors 14 -resize 640x480 uxtechno_logo.jpg uxtechno_logo.xpm
Definition of above option is as follows:
It has to be max 14 colors
It has got to be 640×480 resolution
It should be in xpm format
- Now gzip the file
- Now copy this file to /boot partition.
cp uxtechno_logo.xpm.gz /boot/grub/
- Now change the splashimage parameter in /boot/grub/grub.conf File. As below & save the file.
