I have a splash screen in framebuffer. when xdm (with slim login manager) starts, a blank screen is shown for 3 seconds, then login manager is shown. The problem is the blank screen. Is it possible to remove the blank screen and see the splash screen 3 seconds more before the login manager starts completely?
Is it possible to keep the tty to 1 until the last moment?

You could try running Xorg with "-background none vt01" as command args. You might need to tweak inittab to avoid spawning a getty on the first VT.

Another thing to check is whether going from a console to an already running X using alt-F7 is instant or not (going the other direction may not be); if there's a pause then it may be due to having slightly different screen timings, a manual modeline using `cvt` may help there.
