Re: Usermode splash screen/boot. what's the best approach?

When it says "userspace" I'm assuming this is done without having to
patch the kernel in any way.
I have seen the knoppix bootsplash, but I thought it needed to patch
the kernel (bootsplash.org?) in order to work. I guess I was wrong.

In any case, I'm getting your sources and perhaps we can learn a lot
from this. Thanks.
