Back to Philipp.

r13869 | Bug #35932 d-i: new splashscreen
r13871 | Bug #35932 d-i: new splashscreen

This is currently broken since the graphics format was (again) changed from (SVG to) PNG to JPEG... syslinux currently displays a black screen
Comment 10 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-10-22 09:56:46 CEST
r13881 | Bug #35932 d-i: new splashscreen
 Converted JPEG to PNG by hand as syslinux does not load the JPEG.
 It seems that "tinyjpeg", which is used by syslinux-4.05 only supports some sub-formats of JPEG.
 Please provide a SVG (preferred as this is the "source code") or PNG next time.

splash is displayed correctly

wrong bug number in changelog ( 35935 should be 35932 )
