Slackware bootsplash and animations


A new la entry has been added:

Slackware bootsplash and animations

Quote:
This is a guide on how to add an animation to your bootsplash.
Any steps followed from this guide are done so at your own risk
I accept no responsibilty if it goes wrong,
It is simply documentation of what I did to get bootsplash animations to work.
I'm pretty sure there is another way, but I don't know how.

Please note, I did this using Slackware 11, and it may not work for other distros.


So, here it is (it's quite long):


Firstly, if you haven't already done so, you need to patch your kernel for bootsplash support.
