the soas bootscreen comes with a sugar logo, but doesn't show the progress in any way. we might need to digg again a bit into the plymouth magic.

It's great the bootscreen show the Sugar logo. May I suggest we include a version number too, ideally with a snapshot date or other specific build identifier? This would greatly simplify user ability to identify what they are running. The text itself could be quite small. Is this difficult? I've seen this discussed here by Martin Dengler: http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2009-May/014230.html

the method seems to be:

<snip>
the Logo_black_02-indexed-ascii.ppm is just http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Image:Logo_black_02.svg opened in the GIMP and saved as indexed (223 colours) ASCII.
</snip>

May I propose an imagemagick commandline which could generate the ppm file from the logo and a text file, for example? I've done similar before.

It would be a good idea to have copyright info too, but that's less important I think.

thanks
Sean

  • Priority changed from Normal to Urgent

Getting the creation date of each snapshot in there would be a little bit more difficult, as I'd probably need to rebuild the package each time (unless we can hack something up in the %post part of the kickstart file). But it'd be cool to get something like this done for the next release in June...

I've posted to the ML, asking for help regarding some animation: http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2009-May/014696.html
