I have tried many times to install bootsplash on my LFS 6.1 but no sucess 
yet. I have had followed step-by-step the tutorial from the LFS Hints 

The bootsplah software comes with a tool to build a initdrd for it. Does it 
help you ?

Has anyone got sucess on installing bootsplah on your LFS ? Could help me ? 
Where can I find a good tutorial ?

Thank you.
