Since the release of <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/fedora" title="Fedora" rel="homepage" href="http://fedoraproject.org/">Fedora 12, fedora is using plymouth. Plymouth kicks in just after grub and before the Xserver starts.

Description:

Plymouth provides an attractive graphical <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/bootsplash" title="Bootsplash" rel="wikipedia" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootsplash">boot animation in
place of the <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/text_messaging" title="Text messaging" rel="wikipedia" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Text_messaging">text messages that normally get shown.  Text
messages are instead redirected to a <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/data_logger" title="Data logger" rel="wikipedia" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_logger">log file for viewing
after boot.

Plymouth does support themes and there are couple of plymouth themes already in the repos:

plymouth-theme-spinfinity-0.8.2-3.fc13.i686
plymouth-system-theme-0.8.2-3.fc13.i686
plymouth-theme-charge-0.8.2-3.fc13.i686
plymouth-theme-fade-in-0.8.2-3.fc13.i686
plymouth-theme-solar-0.8.2-3.fc13.i686

To use one of these you need to do the following and see the effects after a reboot:

sudo /usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme
sudo /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd<h6 class="zemanta-related-title">Related articles by Zemanta <ul class="zemanta-article-ul"> <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://www.slideshare.net/ApartmentHomeLiving/plymouth-house-apartments-for-rent-brochure-plymouth-mi-4031778">Plymouth House Apartments for Rent Brochure Plymouth, MI (slideshare.net) <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://maketecheasier.com/change-login-and-boot-screen-in-ubuntu-lucid/2010/05/13">How to Change Your Login And Boot Screen In Ubuntu Lucid (maketecheasier.com) <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://www.slideshare.net/ApartmentHomeLiving/plymouth-heritage-apartments-apartments-for-rent-brochure-plymouth-mi">Plymouth Heritage Apartments Apartments for Rent Brochure Plymouth, MI (slideshare.net) <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://www.plymothiantransit.com/2010/05/pink-yellow-dont-go.html">Pink & Yellow dont go (plymothiantransit.com) <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="http://www.plymothiantransit.com/2010/05/sunday-best-ttt172x.html">Sunday Best: TTT172X (plymothiantransit.com) <div class="zemanta-pixie"><a class="zemanta-pixie-a" title="Reblog this post [with Zemanta]" href="http://reblog.zemanta.com/zemified/55c2d6a5-8570-4dea-8f16-51f1419f5620/"><img class="zemanta-pixie-img" src="http://blog.amit-agarwal.co.in/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/reblog_b91.png" alt="Reblog this post [with Zemanta]" /><span class="zem-script more-related more-info pretty-attribution paragraph-reblog">
