fbcondecor / tty customization on -current?

Hi all. Just curious, i used to run a modified kernel on Arch a few years ago with the fbcondecor patches (allows a fancy boot and a wallpaper for your tty consoles). That was pretty straight forward on arch by meerly installing 2 packages.

I'm wondering is there an up to date guide on patching the kernel for slackware to allow this feature? I'm not concerned about a boot/loading screen so much, but really like having a tad of customization on the tty consoles when i have no need to start an x server.

Can anyone point me to some relevant guides/walkthroughs on setting it up? Or rather, if there's a simpler approach to adding a background to the tty consoles (i remember experimenting with some kind of terminal program that ran on the framebuffer, forgotten it's name though..)
