Usplash on Debian (Lenny)

Filed under: Debian, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 2:25 pm

One of the the great things of Debian is its Community.

This time I went to Debian User Forums to get usplash running on boot.

I was spoiled with the Ubuntu usplash and of course its important for an ex Ubuntu user to feel proud of his Debian box and show off his new Distro.

The only problem I had, was after installing the packages:

apt-get install usplash usplash-theme-debian

I had to run

apt-get -f install

To get the packages installed properly.
The rest the howto went without any issues and the end result putted a 🙂 on my face.

And if you would like to know whats hidden behind this wonderful bootsplash ?
Open a terminal and key in:

dmesg | less

  5. why should i need to install my start splash? Just asking…
    Are there that many simple things that aren’t baked into the debian experience? you’re not making a compelling argument for debian 😐
