Description:

This is a high-grade bootsplash theme for Gentoo boxen of any release. It is substantially based on the Gentoo 2004.0 silent bootsplash theme, it was made entirely with OSS tools, and is fully convolved.

It offers the same graphic, whether booted in verbose or silent mode. Complete, with 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200. (Note: no vga= codes are yet evident for 1600x1200)

Installation is simple. I have set up pre-made initrd's, for your convenience. Includes a Gimp .xcf file used to make one of the images, as an example.

Enjoy!

(P.S. - Please ignore the 'how to install' below. Use the README in the distfile)

This theme is awsome! I was looking for another bootsplash (got a little bored with my current one), but this splash appealed to me..

I did notice a few things, and I hope you find these pointers useful (perhaps for an improvement..?)
- In the config file, the version should be set to 3, otherwise the splash wouldn't show up at all.. (at least not at my gentoo system)
- I've been playing with the box background color/alpha, because it's current value was a little too transparent for me.. (I could hardly work in vim) I changed the alpha value to F0, and this made the splash much better, but also very blue-ish.. I'm not sure how I'll solve this.

Thanks for a wonderful theme!

Thank you Vdboor, you are very kind.

Yes, today I discovered that the version number is not simply arbitrary. So I've corrected all .cfg's and rebuilt all initrd's. Apologies for any inconvenience, etc.

For the text box overlay, you'd like to adjust its transparency. In the .cfg file at (i.e. bootsplash-1280x1024.cfg):
box noover 20 20 1260 900 #04044550
you will adjust the last two digits (50) to a lower number for more transparency. (giving more brilliant chrome) To adjust the color of the overlay box, adjust the 040445 portion to your preferred (hex) values.

Er, you will prefer less transparency, like 90 or so. :j
