    Actually it's not.
    I hate one / partition and one /home partition and that is it.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    Splashy 0.1-5 (downloaded from the splashy homepage) works flawlessly on my box, which has /usr on its own partition.

    The fact that you see the 10%. 20% etc means that splashy is working, but that the picture is not displaying for some reason. I had a similar thing happen until I realised that I hadn't named my startup and shutdown picturse correctly in the splashy xml config file.

    One other thing, splashy works just fine with png graphics.

    Finally, thanks a lot for the howto!

    I have mine set to 791. Try that.
    Here's my kernel line:

    Code:
    kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda9 ro vga=791 quiet splash
    /path/to/Truth

    PS -> 0.1-5 is not the newest version. That 0.1.3 is. It's not 0.1.5, it's 0.1-5.0 as far as I understand. That is why you mixed the versions

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    Still doesn't work for me
    HELP! Do you have that pid file in the directory?
    I get the message that Splashy is not running and because of that, it cannot send any messages. I see that green text progress notifications but no graphics ((((

    I don't have any pid file in that folder.

    I added the ubuntu titled paths myself (for image files).

    $ ls /etc/splashy
