creating a bootsplash for LFS


well... let's take a rest from the '64bit' world and go for another question for the moment

I've seen distributions like SuSE and Red Hat (in this case my FC2), shows an animated bootsplash screen, how can this be accomplished for LFS?

I mean... is this possible for any kernel version or installed tools or maybe... must I install a concrete version of the linux kernel or needed tools to accomplish this?

actually you want to go to http://www.bootsplash.de bootsplash is deprecated in favor of gensplash. If you want a kernel that has already been patched ck-sources is. What I'm using is 2.6.8-ck7 and does come with vesafb-tng as an option. This might be of some help http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/project...easy-steps.txt

The quality of gensplash is far superior to bootsplash. I say when majority of kernel patchset sources come patched with gensplash instead of bootsplash it's depreciated but bootsplash patches are still available.

never realized ck-sources was a gentoo kernel. wasn't bootsplash developed by suse devs? Many non gentoo users use gensplash. now that there is 2 different bootsplashes one will eventually die off. Bootsplash is not really deprecated what I really should have said is gensplash is more than likely going to take it's place
