    Cool Any Help Links for Usplash or Xsplash!!

    If anyone knows of any links where I could get detailed help to get either usplash or xsplash to run properly on my system please post them. I use a AC to DC converter with my installation, so I always cold boot my system(which is why I am so determined to get my boot splash working correctly... the scripts showing is not visually appealing!)

    Thanks for any help in advance!!!


    Here is my current usplash...

    Removed the "vga=xxx" from the grub bootloader. That got it to at least run. Then implemented nemcrk's fix to get it to stay up during boot in conjunction with the edit you gave me about commenting out "usplash_quit" and replacing it with "usplash_down". Also had to add "TIMEOUT 200" at the end of usplash_write in etc/init.d/usplash after changing it from usplash_quit....



    # ask usplash to go away
    usplash_write "TIMEOUT 200"

    Would it be possible to get a quick how-to on the things you did to get this working?

    You have to edit the menu 1st file to remove "VGA=XXX" from the grub bootloader


    Then follow these instructions that Kev posted...


    "the solution is to edit /etc/init.d/usplash and comment out the "usplash_quit" and replace it with "usplash_down". I'm not sure if this works. nemocrk in the irc channel found this solution."


    Then follow nemocrk's fix from terminal...


    "you have to give these commands:
    sudo update-rc.d -f usplash remove
    update-rc.d usplash start 01 S . stop 01 0 1 6 ."

    then reboot and you got it!!

    The other stuff listed above may not always be necessary.
