    It is working for me.

    Correction - it is working for me in 12.2. I long ago turned off splash in 12.1, and my memory is not good enough for me to be sure that it worked in 12.1.

    With 12.2, the boot splash is part of the plymouth package. I suggest that your run "mkinitrd" from the command line, as root. The initial build of the "initrd" file is done from the installer, and it possibly misses something needed for the splash animation to work properly. I can't guarantee that will fix the problem, but it is worth the try.

    There is no progress bar on Opensuse 12.2
    12.2 uses plymouth as you told.
    I think you misunderstood.
    I am not talking about Bootsplash animation.
    I am talking about the little progress bar on bootsplash animation.

    That is what I assumed you were talking about.

    I see that horizontal bar on 12.2, though I'm not sure why it is still there. It starts short, and grows longer. Then it disappears as the display manager login screen takes over.

    Since the updated packages for 12.2 from Friday this progress bar is no
    longer there only the animated swarm of white balls.
