Plymouth on CentOS 5.5 ?


Is there a way to install Plymouth Boot screen for centOS 5.5 ?
I am unable to get any RPM for CentOS.
Fedora has it but CentOS doesnt.

I tried compiling it from source but I get an error that libpng 1.2.16 >= is required for this. Unfortunately even that is not there in CentOS.
Only 1.2.10 is there for CentOS.

Anyhelp is greatly appreciated.

Plymouth used to be available from the EPEL repository. The CentOS site has guidance on using other repositories, such as EPEL and RPMfusion.
