usplash(8)                   System Manager's Manual                  usplash(8)



NAME
       usplash - userspace bootsplash daemon

SYNOPSIS
       usplash [-c] [-v] [-x num] [-y num]

DESCRIPTION
       Uses the framebuffer to provide a graphical bootsplash screen from
       userspace during system boot and shutdown.  As well as a static image,
       the screen includes a progress bar and text updated by commands received
       from usplash_write(8).

OPTIONS
       -c     Causes usplash to switch to a new console (vt8) before displaying
              the splash screen, rather than writing over the current one.

       -v     Put usplash into verbose mode where more messages will be shown.
              Without this flag only urgent messages will be displayed.

       -x num Set the x-axis resolution to use for the splash screen to num.

       -y num Set the y-axis resolution to use for the splash screen to num.

COMMANDS
       See usplash_write(8) for a list of the commands that can be sent.
