I’m having some strange issues when trying to get the splash screen working on an Apalis T30 during boot.
Our platform is using a 7" display which has a resolution of 1024x600, hooked up to the LVDS port.
Having followed this guide to the letter, I see no splash screen. The framebuffer console has been disabled as mentioned in the article yet the splash screen is still not visible.
However, what I can confirm is this: if I change the size of the splash screen image from 1024x600 to another size (say 800x480) then go through the motions to convert it to an ASCII PPM file, the splash screen is then successfully displayed. Its almost as if either there is a maximum file size for the splash image or 1024x600 is too large for the image.
Any clues, please?
