I'm building a system for my sister who apparently does not fancy boot
messages... and came across bootsplash which does just the thing I want.
Has any of you tried it? My main problem seems to be the lack of
bootsplash patch for kernel 220.127.116.11 which I'm using - the nearest
available is for 2.6.12. I applied the patch anyway, but... after
enabling all the required options I still cannot access menu option
"Bootsplash configuration". It's there with "--->", but I cannot get in...
I also came across gensplash, an offspring of Gentoo - is it any better?
And last but not least - I'll be compiling nvidia's drivers a little
later. Many people suggest *not* building "nVidia Framebuffer Support"*,
not even as a module, as it will break the driver for sure. Is it true?
Thanks for your efforts in answering the above!
* What's the difference between that one and "nVidia Riva Support"? Is
the latter older / outddated?
