Hi actionparsnip,

Actually i am using ubuntu natty omap4 headless on 'omap4 panda board' with my few custom userspace packages. but before using my custom userspace, i want know how should i run plymouth/splash on headless.

I tried basic command as
- installed plymouth using apt-get
- installed plymouth-themes
- update-alternatives --install /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.plymouth 100
- update-alternatives --config default.plymouth and select one of the theme

Could you please provide me the basic setup to run plymouth on ubutnu headless omap4.

Your support will be very helpful and useful to me.
Thanks..

If I understand what you have said correctly, you are still not explaining why you want to run Plymouth on a headless machine. Since it has no monitor, you cannot see the plymouth theme. Even if you have enabled it--and perhaps you have--you wouldn't notice any difference. Are actionparsnip and I missing something?
