Boot splash screen for fedora core 7? RHGB? Bootsplash? Gensplash? Splashy?

Hey folks. I would like to have a boot splash screen on Fedora Core 7. Previously, I've used Gensplash, but there doesn't seem to be any FC7 packages available. I have considered RHGB, but I believe it requires a graphical desktop manager, and I'd prefer not to have to install one. Any suggestions?

rhgb should be installed by default but I'm not sure. try this ( I am at work at a windows box )
Code:
yum list rhgb
if it IS there you can add it to your grub.conf

so last part of kernel line would look like
Code:
ro root=/dev/sdaX rhgb quiet
if it is not there you can check its dependancies with
Code:
yum deplist rhgb
or you can
Code:
yum install rhgb
and look at what all it wants to install before okaying it

just to clarify though you are not wanting a grub splash right? You mean splash for after the grub loader?

Correct, I do not want a grub splash, but rather a splash for everything which follows (the startup scripts up to the login prompt).

Again, I'd prefer to not use rhgb, because of its dependency on a graphical desktop manager.

Anyhow, I've gone ahead and installed X.org and rhgb. I get the graphical login, but no boot splash during the startup scripts. Nothing conspicuous in the logs, afaik. Ideas?

have you added it to your grub.conf like I said in my above post?

My first thought would be to make sure you're running at init 5 and not init 3. (It will say what your default init level is in inittab.) You can have an x window w/o running at init 5, but rhgb won't run w/o being in init 5.

Also, check the logs, say, X.0.log, or something to that extent to see if the x window is failing or not. It may be complaining about not having a font (which it did in my case).
