bootscreen for blfs


Hi

Is there any way I can set a boot screen for my blfs system.

Im creating the system for a novice user and dont want to scare him with the boot screen with all those commands and code showing.

Im a web designer as well and was wondering once I have the boot screen up I wanted to change it to some animation or gif I could creating of my own company...

Ive seem some pretty outdated posts about boot screens and I dont want to risk following those guides as they could destroy my current system. I have installed blfs using the blfs Version 2012-07-10 book

This is out of scope for (B)LFS. If I'm assuming that you have build BLFS on top of a recent LFS version, grub2 is used to boot.

Search on-line for grub2 boot screen or grub2 splash screen to get a ton of hits. Here is one to get you going:
- Splashimages for GRUB2

Do keep in mind that most tutorials are distro specific......

Usually Plymouth is the thing program used for something like that.

could do what you want, although it was for slackware it should work for lfs just put the code I guess somewhere in the front of /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc
