Attaching patch to add bootsplash support to kernel.  This patch allows an image
to be placed behind the console, starting as soon the kernel loads.

Is it going to be incorporated?  Seems very promising.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-07 03:46:06 EDT
actually it doesn't look promising....

I haven't had any problems getting it to work as of now.  It will however,
require a few minor changes.

1) The actual bootsplash screens need to be selected and drawn (one for each
screen resolution).  I'm using the default with the Linux penguin right now.
2) The 'splashutils' rpm will need to be built.  (Not a big problem)
3) mkinitrd will have to add the bootsplash screens to the initrd, so an
arbitrary location for the config and splash files will have to be selected.
4) Bootsplash screens and config need to be included with the kernel-source.
4) (optional) A shell script (which I have one written) to load a shutdown
splash screen, or a small adjustment to rc.sysinit.

It breaks several video card setups because it uses the vesa graphical
