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