Before spending hours googling, I wanted to ask here first...
Anyone tried setting up a booting screen or animation?
I'm building a small surfing desktop, it boots fastly to Xorg + XFCE4 + Firefox in kiosk mode.
I didin't think of this, before I set up the machine for "beta" testing and started getting help requests from people freaking out of a simple Linux booting screen with lot of text.
I didn't realize that some people may get scary seeing text running fast, even if afterwards everything works nicely.
So, what would be the best way to hide all boot messages after Grub until Xorg loads? Should I hide everything, or maybe add a "Please wait" text? Is there any easy way to add an animation?
Should I just leave you alone and start Googling?
But, I tried the other patches from the other site ( bootsplash-3.1.6-2.6.24.diff ) and it seems that it won't work with 22.214.171.124. But the weird thing is, that it didin't work with 2.6.24 either, after I modified the access_ok() call to copy_from_user_mmap_sem().
Any idea, if theres a newer patch somewhere or if someone could modify that a bit to make it work with 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52?
