Description:

Boot Splash for SuSE Linux Professional
----------------------------------------------

Installation:

Copy a contents of archive to /usr/share/splash/themes (eg. /usr/share/splash/themes/SuSEsplash )
and change /etc/sysconfig/bootsplash to use your freshly created theme.

Then run (as root):

# SuSEconfig --module bootsplash
# mk_initrd

If you use lilo for booting, you have to rerun the "lilo" program in order
to make lilo recognize your new initrd containing the pictures.

Have fun !

I have unpacked the file in

/usr/share/splash/themes/SuSEsplash

I now have 3 folders in that dir

bootloader
config
images

I ran edited /etc/sysconfig/bootsplash
so it now reads

/etc/bootsplash/themes/SuSEsplash
THEME="bootsplash"

I then ran SuSEconfig and mk_initrd and got the following...
# SuSEconfig --module bootsplash
Starting SuSEconfig, the SuSE Configuration Tool...
Running module bootsplash only
Reading /etc/sysconfig and updating the system...
Module bootsplash does not exist
Finished.

# mk_initrd
Root device: /dev/hda2 (mounted on / as reiserfs)
Module list: reiserfs
Kernel version: 2.4.21-99-default (i386)

Need help.

Hi

-extract archive to /usr/share/splash/themes/ (should be /usr/share/splash/themes/SuSEsplash)
-edit bootsplash in /etc/sysconfig and change THEME="SuSE" to THEME="SuSEsplash"
- SuSEconfig --module bootsplash
- mk_initrd
- reboot

Should work :)
