Usplash Until Desktop

Registered by Sivan Greenberg on 2005-10-20

Usplash currently bows out once gdm flips the vt. It would be better if it continued to display while X started, and only switched when gdm is ready for login.

Whiteboard

Not possible at this time, X needs to start from a text console in order to be able to restore the console state when you want to return again.

What about running a daemon that changes the console state the first time a VT is called, running only once per boot? This should allow for the transition effect when the login screen is ready, and allow for only the slightest of delays as the VT is first called.
