Don't know where to put this thread so please move if not ok in gentoo chat.

The bootsplash thread on this board is old and seems outdated: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=49036&highlight=bootsplash

So does the howto on "the other site": http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/Bootsplash

What is the state of bootsplash? Is it necessary to patch kernel-generation 3? What is the current package to be emerged?

Hi tobbebobbe,

you might want to try plymouth + dracut instead. I just literally finished configuring it for myself and it is a breeze.

See http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Plymouth for the instructions.

There are indeed, I personally use script, which is minimalist, smart and segues nicely into a modified slim theme i created to match background colors.

I used the instructions on the wiki and it works correctly. I don't have a problem with it and I've done it not long ago too.
