Description:

Bootsplash for Suse 93, but may be used with any suse distro. The progress bar actually has correct timing with new kernels.

To install:

1 extract to /etc/bootsplash/themes/
example: /etc/bootsplash/themes/susegreensplash

2 use Yast bootsplash theme changer-by mouseclicks: Yast>system>/etc/sysconfig Editor>system>boot>theme>type name of theme (susegreensplash)>finish

3 as superuser (root) type in terminal: mkinitrd -s 1024x768

... done ... reboot, and you will see the new bootsplash.

(I thank the author of this splendid transparent *.png image)! Great artwork! All I did it insert the image and adjust the progress bar timing, position, and colors.

Doesn't work in openSUSE 10.2: Does not show up in Yast /etc/config editor.

Bleh, the bootsplash for SuSE 9.3 was disgusting. Nice going ;)

I've moved onto 10 now, and that bootsplash is much improved...

I just installed your bootsplash theme, following all the directions that were given, and all I get at startup is text! Nothing but text until the login screen.

Hi firstly, are you running Suse? I know... dumb question. Also, the last step, running mkinitrd -s 1024x768 as superuser is key... I am so sorry it wont work for you ... plz let me know if you have any luck. So far, everyone I know has had no problems getting the bootsplash installed..

I like it. Make a matching KDE splash (like how the 9.3 default works) and I'll love you.

Oh... I gotcha... the full screen Ksplash... I will give it a shot! Will be full screen but slightly different with regard to animation... I will try to figure it out!!

Awesome, glad you like it. I have made a matching wallpaper and Ksplash. Let me know if you would use a matching KDM theme for login! I will whip one up for you!
