This theme includes a nice animated progress bar. It was tested on openSUSE 12.1. Theme supports only 1024x768. If you take it for difference resolution you must change the config file and the images resolution. Hope you like it :)
Before you'll install this theme, I recommend to make backup this file: /boot/initrd. To install:
1) Unpack archive: tar xf ./Downloads/linux.tar.gz
2) Copy folder to /etc/bootsplash/themes: cp -r ./linux /etc/bootsplash/themes
3) Edit /etc/sysconfig/bootsplash: nano /etc/sysconfig/bootsplash
In this file, change THEME="openSUSE" to THEME="linux".
4) And finally: mkinitrd
That's it. Reboot to see the splash screen.
