README.graphics

Here is some documentation on what "graphics" were 'sl'fied.
So if they just wish to get the SL out and put your "site" graphics in,
these are the files they need to change.

From redhat-logo's rpm
------------------------------
firstboot/firstboot-header.png
firstboot/splash-small.png
bootloader/grub-splash.png
bootloader/grub-splash.xpm.gz
bootloader/rhlilo-en.pcx
bootloader/rhlilo-ja.pcx

You will have to rebuild this rpm with your changes and then put it
in your sites/<site>/Updates directory. Please change the "Release" to
be your "site" vs "SL" to distinguish it.

NOTE: under bootloader, there are grub-splash.xcf.gz and
rhlilo-en.xcf.gz. These are the pictures in the gimps layered format.
It is easiest to change these files and then just save them in the
appropriate format.

From anaconda-images
------------------------------
anaconda_header.png
first-375.png
first-lowres.png
first.png
progress_first.png
splash.png
syslinux-splash.png

You can put your versions of these files in
sites/<site>/RHupdates/pixmaps directory. Or create a new anaconda-images
rpm. Please change the "Release" if you create a new rpm.

NOTE1:As is noted above, there are several .xcf and .xcf.gz files here.
These are there to make it easier to create your own graphics, as they are
in the layered format.

Boot Loader Image
-------------------------
Although these are done seperatly, they are usually based off of the
anaconda-images syslinux-splash. The graphics that made the boot loader
graphics for SL are found in the example site's build area.
sites/example/build/graphics

syslinux-splash.sl.xcf
(The gimp picture, layered)

syslinux-splash.png
(the above picture converted to 16 color png
This one we use is a 640x256 graphic)

splash.lss
(the above picture converted to .lss)

lss.conversion.command
(the command that converted the png to lss, along with some
notes to help keep track of the colors.)
