Re: Bootsplash in Debian

Perhaps your kernel lacks of support "VESA" fb driver. Check your
.config:

bash-2.05b$ grep FB /usr/src/linux/.config
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_OFFBOARD is not set
CONFIG_FB=y
# CONFIG_FB_RIVA is not set
# CONFIG_FB_CLGEN is not set
# CONFIG_FB_PM2 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_PM3 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_CYBER2000 is not set
CONFIG_FB_VESA=y
# CONFIG_FB_VGA16 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_HGA is not set
# CONFIG_FB_MATROX is not set
# CONFIG_FB_ATY is not set
# CONFIG_FB_RADEON is not set
# CONFIG_FB_ATY128 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_INTEL is not set
# CONFIG_FB_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_FB_NEOMAGIC is not set
# CONFIG_FB_3DFX is not set
# CONFIG_FB_VOODOO1 is not set
# CONFIG_FB_TRIDENT is not set
# CONFIG_FB_VIRTUAL is not set
CONFIG_FBCON_SPLASHSCREEN=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB16=y
# CONFIG_FBCON_ADVANCED is not set
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB8=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB16=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB24=y
CONFIG_FBCON_CFB32=y
# CONFIG_FBCON_FONTWIDTH8_ONLY is not set
# CONFIG_FBCON_FONTS is not set

Also check you got such a message while you're booting:

vesafb: framebuffer at 0xe8000000, mapped to 0xe080a000, size 1875k
vesafb: mode is 800x600x16, linelength=1600, pages=67
