[SOLVED] fbsplash fails to install from aur

I am trying to install the fbsplash package from the aur with the command makepkg -sic. i am getting the following error:

libtool: warning: complete static linking is impossible in this configuration
/usr/bin/ld: ./.libs/libfbsplashrender.a(libfbsplashrender_la-common.o): in function `dev_create':
common.c:(.text+0x9a): undefined reference to `makedev'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [Makefile:1026: fbsplashctl] Error 1
make[3]: *** [Makefile:1514: all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: *** [Makefile:724: all] Error 2
make[1]: *** [Makefile:441: all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:372: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

I would really appreciate some help with how to fix this.
(I did change the source link  to https://netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/p … .4.tar.bz2 like it said in the comments.)

Are you sure you want to do this? Not only is the pkgbuild doing some outdated stuff, the software is entirely unmaintained and the description tells you to use plymouth instead.

No I am not sure I want to use this particular package. I am trying to add an image background to my console. This page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fb … ackgrounds  says I needed the fbsplash package to do this. If there is a better way to go about adding a background to my tty console I would love to know about it.

From the link you posted

wiki wrote:

This article or section is out of date.

... Fbsplash has not been actively updated in the recent years and may not be working correctly on a recent Arch setup using systemd. If you want a fancy splash screen during boot, you might want to try Plymouth instead.

Re: [SOLVED] fbsplash fails to install from aur

More importantly it tells you to use a patched kernel, whose patchset doesn't seem to exist anymore. This will definitely be the wrong avenue to go down.

A bit of googling leads to:  https://github.com/uobikiemukot/yaft and the relevant AUR page for what seems to be an actively developed framebuffer terminal with image support

Alternatively, though seemingly also not as actively updated: fbterm
