Yes it is. When I start my laptop without splashy it is working correctly.

As i stated in the thread various times, Splashy (on ArchLinux) does not support suspend yet.

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Works great. Great job fixing splashy lexiw! I hope arch devs work together with him for accepting his fixes or changing the needed scripts in some official way. Would be great having official, blessed scripts for splashy functionality, as it's a critical part for the system bootup if used.

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Hello,

I just installed splashy using
[archlinuxve]
Server = http://repo.archlinux.com.ve/i686

pacman -S splashy

--------------------------------------------------------------
then I followed the explanation from the first posting and also the ones from the wiki but neither one of these is working for me. I still see the normal boot screen.


Any ideas?


Edit:

I just realized that when shutting down I'm getting an error in rc.shutdown line 132 that splash_exit could not be found

Same here. I see the splash screen on bootup, but I get the error when shutting down. If I'm going to give Arch to my grandma, I need to be able to hide most of the technical stuff tongue

Same here, it's my mom's notebook big_smile

Can you tell me what you exactly you did install? I would already be happy with a boot splash screen, or at least an error message sad

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Have you seen the wiki article on it? I just added the appropriate things to my grub config file (menu.lst), /etc/rc.conf and /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. Then I did "sudo mkinitcpio -p kernel26", and on boot I got a really ugly penguin as a splash screen tongue I'm still trying to find something better.

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Ok great. I've finally bothered to actually waste time on something like this and I have to say, it was worth the time smile Kudos to the author, and of course to both AUR and third-party binary package maintainers. I wouldn't have thought of giving it a try if it weren't for the binary repo.

Anyway, to contribute constructively:

1) I've noticed the the shutdown error too, like the posters above me. I would've gone debugging it but for the meantime I'm not rebooting anymore for at least a few more days. Suspend-to-ram works (because there's no splash involved).

2) It'd be nice to implement a verbose splash, like Ubuntu's (and other popular distros') usplash.

3) Don't you think an animated grub (I really like the PCLinuxOS type; with a fancy countdown timer) coupled with the darch-white theme would be mighty awesome?

4) I love the darch-white theme. The aurora is second on the list.

5) Hmm..


I need real, proper pen and paper for this.

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Hello!

I am reviewing ArchLinux for my podcast ( www.sourcecast.org ).    I am currently a Gentoo user, and Arch is the first distro in a considerable amount of time that has my interest as potentially using on my desktop/laptop.   Though candidly I think Gentoo is still unbeatable on a server.   

I have gone through a considerable number of forum posts and wiki pages .... let me post my understanding of things and see if you guys can verify that it's right:

- Gensplash became FBSplash
- Gensplash is broken and all the packages and files pertaining to it are pointless due to the above
- FBSplash doesn't work at all in ArchLinux.   Theory is initscript trouble.
- Stock Splashy on AUR is also highly buggy
- This modified Splashy breaks suspend/hibernate on laptops

Is that correct?   I confess I've never had to deal with these problems, as Gentoo has the luxury of having it's ebuilds set to accept patches for easy installation of FBSplash.

check out PKGBUILDS its the same as ebuilds but better (imo)

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

1) It does NOT break suspend-to-ram, or rather, it should not, or cannot - by design.
2) Splash works on shutdown

So uhh, it's all good. Now we just need a patched Grub and some Nitrous Oxide for the framebuffer flicker early on and the ages it takes X and a Login Manager to start smile

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Great! I'll try this out when my schedule gets less crazy with school. Hey, does anyone know of if it's easy to get CUDA setup and running on Arch? I've got to port a hydrologic model into CUDA next week for my thesis research and I've never coded alot of C and don't know CUDA. Any experts around?

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Umm, I want the messages that are normally displayed after the kernel detects all the hardware to show up. I don't mean removing the quiet option. I mean the messages like starting so and so module , mounting partitions, entering init 5 and so on. Can anyone guide me on how to do this?

Also, the theme I have right now just shows a progress bar and does not even indicate its Arch-linux( I wanna show off my distro big_smile ). Is there any other theme which someone can suggest?

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Even with the arch-linux simply-black theme, no logo of arch is shown, just a progress bar.
Also, I seem to be getting some black pixels at the top left after I log in. They go away when I switch to another virtual console and back,

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Great work ! I installed from the binary repo and almost everything works fine. There is an issue though:
with initscripts-splash no dhcp daemon seems to be launched. Anybody has this problem too ?
I have restored my configs after installing the new initscripts package...

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

Building hook for new kernel fails as zlib now provides libz.so in /usr. Just one file, one line to change:

/lib/initcpio/install/splashy

add_file "/usr/lib/libz.so.1"

I need real, proper pen and paper for this.

Re: Arch Linux and Splashy, a big update

any news?

where can I get the latest packages?

from the repo?

[archlinuxve]
Server = http://repo.archlinux.com.ve/i686

or are this the latest ones?

http://slexiw.netsons.org/files/splashy-stuff7.tar.gz

Are the changes already in the official initscripts?
