Linux Progress Patch

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Linux, Programming | Posted on 31-01-2001

Miester sent us a cool site for all of you Linux fans, The Linux Progress Patch.

“The Linux Progress Patch is a kernel patch which displays a full-screen logo with a progress bar and some informational text while booting. It hides the normal startup messages printed by the kernel, and is meant for people that don’t care about complicated and possibly confusing boot messages.”

You can read more about the project at their web site here. Be sure to check out some of the screen shots and start pages. A list of the different themes for startup can be found here.
