Hi,

I'd like to know one if my approach towards the following problem statement is correct or wrong,

Developer should be able to select a logo on runtime using kernel command line argument or something similar.

As far as I see from the drivers/video/logo section, we need to implement some mechanism to compile two ppm files into the kernel binary and provide a mechanism to select the addresses based on kernel command line argument, to switch the logo.

Is this approach valid ?
Thanks in Advance :)

Best Regards,
Moses Christopher

To have a logo at boot you need to be running a kernel compiled with "CONFIG_LOGO=y", other option it to set a logo on your bootloader(ie: Grub) but then it will only be display during the boot screen where you can select which kernel you want to boot from. When I do a quick search through the kernel source I only find these options with "CONFIG_LOGO" in it.
Code:
CONFIG_LOGO
CONFIG_LOGO_DEC_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_MONO
CONFIG_LOGO_LINUX_VGA16
CONFIG_LOGO_MAC_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_PARISC_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_SGI_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_SUN_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_SUPERH_CLUT224
CONFIG_LOGO_SUPERH_MONO
CONFIG_LOGO_SUPERH_VGA16
So maybe one of them is the change the log.
