Task for somebody: Work on Bootup Process
« on: February 28, 2010, 08:08:29 am »
I need someone to start from /etc/init.d/linuxmce and...

(1) add code to do a bootsplash that will work with and without composite manager loading.
(2) fix the spurious switch to the other VT which is not needed, the usplash needs to be visible all the way up until X starts.
(3) implmement hooks for the StartService functions in that file to update usplash.

somebody want to take this on?

I'll take a look at this.  I work full time (40+ hours) and am a full time grad student, so if anyone can get this done faster be my guest.

See defects 655 and 656.

Still some kinks that need to be worked out but progress all the same.
