Graphical boot screen


Does anyone know of any tutorials or programs that will add a graphical kernel boot screen to Fedora Core 2?

Would the ones found at Bootsplash work? Has anyone tried these?

I'm building a Freevo box and would like it to look as nice as possible, which means getting rid of all those kernel and service messages

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, however I'm not quite sure what you mean. I'm still pretty new to Linux so you'll have to forgive my n00bishness

Would you mind explaining that in a little more detail?

Thanks

Did you do a fresh install of FC2, or did you upgrade from something? when i went from RH9 to FC2, I didnt have a graphical bootsplash, but with a fresh install, i did...

just something to think about...

FC1,2, and 3 have all had graphical boot. Try a fresh install if you can.

Hey,
I am not entirely sure what Y2K means, but he is probably talking about the grub.conf file which can be found at /etc/grub.conf, you can open it in a text editor like vi, or emacs. then you will just edit the lines in there that you need depending on what you would like to do.

I did do a fresh install of FC2, and I guess I see what you mean now. It does start with a graphical boot when I start into Runlevel 5 like normal, but because I'm using this as a standalone Freevo box, I setup Grub to automatically go into Runlevel 4 where Freevo automatically starts, and when it exits the system shuts down.

Everything works slick, except for the bootup. How can I make Runlevel 4 have a graphical bootup like Runlevel 5 does? Are there other bootup screens available aside from the default?

Thanks again.
