That's what that shows for me here. Try loading your framebuffer by hand (using modprobe) and then execute:
You don't need to reboot to test splashy as it's simply executed just like any other application.

displayed. I've tried both default and debiansplashy themes (the latter
I tried to use it by modifying /etc/splashy/config.xml). Am I missing
