There seems to be many threads on this - perhaps that should say something about how easy it is to use (or not)?
Anyway, having read the other threads, none of them get close to the problem I’m having. I’ve created a new theme, and it works when I do splashy test but it doesn’t activate on boot or shutdown.
I have tried mkinitrd, edited my LILO file, &c. - but to no proper solution.
Reading the man page on splashy it says
Used when booting your system. This is run automatically by a initrc script during boot. "/sbin/splashy shutdown" Similar in spirit to boot, but run during shutdown. This is run automatically by a initrc script during shutdown.
My question is: which scripts would these commands go in?
This is the contents of my lilo.conf file:
