Startup animation and theme for Fedora 12 onwards.

Since the release of Fedora 12, fedora is using plymouth. Plymouth kicks in just after grub and before the Xserver starts.


Plymouth provides an attractive graphical boot animation in
place of the text messages that normally get shown.  Text
messages are instead redirected to a log file for viewing
after boot.

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


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 <theme name>
sudo /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd
