I think the fbsplash hook was recently removed from fbsplash. Adding it to HOOKS will cause mkinitcpio to fail (because it can't find the script). —'''[[User:TedPavlic|TedPavlic]]''' ([[User_talk:TedPavlic|talk]]/[[Special:Contributions/TedPavlic|contrib]]/[[Special:EmailUser/TedPavlic|@]]) 11:01, 17 March 2010 (EDT)

The page says: "to the bottom of your rc.conf."

Is it really rc.conf? I thought it should be /boot/grub/menu.lst or something?

Ah. The formatting was confusing. Fixing.

Current state of fbsplash in Arch.

Am I right in thinking that fbsplash is rather broken in Arch right now?

AUR page is here.

No fbsplash hook anymore

I think the fbsplash hook was recently removed from fbsplash. Adding it to HOOKS will cause mkinitcpio to fail (because it can't find the script). —TedPavlic (talk/contrib/@) 11:01, 17 March 2010 (EDT)
