I want to change the penguin logo that appears on boot. I looked into it and found this command:

pngtopnm nelogo.png | ppmquant -fs223| pnmtoplainpnm > logo_linux_clut224.ppm

But when I tried it I got this error message:

unrecognized option `-fs223'
pnmtoplainpnm: EOF / read error reading magic number

What did I do wrong? How can I replace the boot logo?

According to my (interpretation of, at least) manpages, the -fs option on ppmquant doesn't take an argument; the ncolors argument is separate. Separate the -fs 223. Not sure whether that will take care of the magic number error too.

Hi Kevin, you are correct. when I seperate -fs and 223 it worked fine. thanks a lot. –  gosk Oct 24 '11 at 19:14
