Graphical boot screen
Does anyone know of any tutorials or programs that will add a graphical kernel boot screen to Fedora Core 2?

Would the ones found at Bootsplash work? Has anyone tried these?

I'm building a Freevo box and would like it to look as nice as possible, which means getting rid of all those kernel and service messages :)

How about adding

Thanks for the reply, however I'm not quite sure what you mean. I'm still pretty new to Linux so you'll have to forgive my n00bishness :)

Would you mind explaining that in a little more detail?

Did you do a fresh install of FC2, or did you upgrade from something? when i went from RH9 to FC2, I didnt have a graphical bootsplash, but with a fresh install, i did...

just something to think about...

FC1,2, and 3 have all had graphical boot. Try a fresh install if you can.

I am not entirely sure what Y2K means, but he is probably talking about the grub.conf file which can be found at /etc/grub.conf, you can open it in a text editor like vi, or emacs. then you will just edit the lines in there that you need depending on what you would like to do.

I did do a fresh install of FC2, and I guess I see what you mean now. It does start with a graphical boot when I start into Runlevel 5 like normal, but because I'm using this as a standalone Freevo box, I setup Grub to automatically go into Runlevel 4 where Freevo automatically starts, and when it exits the system shuts down.

Everything works slick, except for the bootup. How can I make Runlevel 4 have a graphical bootup like Runlevel 5 does? Are there other bootup screens available aside from the default?

Thanks again.
