I wasn't sure where else to put this.
Splashy shows up for a second when I boot, but is then replaced by the standard output of the boot sequence. I checked dmesg and found this
[ 3.992541] splashy: segfault at 0 ip (null) sp 00007fff610aa3a8 error 14 in splashy[400000+5000]
I searched on google and various other forums and couldn't find anything. I never had splashy working in the first place, I just installed it today, so it's not an update issue or anything.
Also, when I run sudo splashy test, the splash screen comes up correctly, except the progress bar is flickery.
I have that same line in my dmesg. I'm using grub2 - tried some different kernel boot lines, not loading video for grub... still the segfault.
I get the following (similar) output and experience the same problems:
[ 4.813765] splashy: segfault at f0d6ab16 ip 0954ba5f sp bfd771e0 error 7
I'm getting the same thing!
splashy: segfault at 0 ip
also at 216.
Just to mention that I've been using fbsplash with no problems so far. (arch-elegant theme is nice)
I have an Optimus laptop (i.e. an Intel onboards graphic chip combined with a Nvidia graphics card) - maybe that has something to do with the problem?
I guess someone should report this bug.
Looks like you need to login on Splashy project homepage to do so, however.
I don't really feel like creating an account just for that...
The splashy project does not look very active, by the way, 'guess I'm giving Plymouth a try.
