Change Log

2008-10-29  Luis Mondesi <>

        * scripts/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-premount/libsplashy: test
        char devices before we create /dev/fb0 or any other char device under /dev, we
        check to see whether they already exist

2008-10-28  Luis Mondesi <>

        * scripts/ fixes issues with /etc/init.d/kdm this is a very ugly work around to the fact that /etc/init.d/kdm
        does not use LSB functions to start up.

        * src/splashy_config-main.c: fixes DBTS 501997 needs to include locale.h when building without optimization

        * scripts/,
scripts/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-premount/splashy: Make splashy
        start later during boot to give uswsusp the opportunity to start
        resume (and with it libsplashy).

        * po/fr.po: Update french translation.

        * scripts/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-top/splashy: reverts $resume
        hack as a few people point out, having this does not really fix the
        problem of uswsusp+splashy conflict. this just makes splashy start
        late from the boot process as initramfs never actually starts
        splashy. Thanks Niko Cavallini Araya for helping iron this one out.

2008-07-28  Luis Mondesi <>

        * scripts/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-top/splashy: chvt 8 only if
        Splashy is doing the work and not resuming by swsusp as suggested by Matthijs

2008-07-28  Luis Mondesi <>

        * scripts/ only run splashy-related functions
        when Splashy (package) is installed as suggested on the DBTS and mailinglist by Tim, if somebody
        uninstalls Splashy but does not purge the package, we do not want
        /etc/ to stop the boot process in anyway. This
        safely bails out from doing anything that's related to Splashy only.
