    According to my Zypper, Bootsplash. And given that you still have to rely on things like VESA for the bootspash, there were not a whole lot of reasons to switch. Well, I guess it will work better with opensource drivers now, though.

    But GRUB2 is a really nice thing to have! Too bad it doesn't install directly at this point...

    Of course there are, on my Gentoo boxes I use fbsplash, except for the laptop that boots fast enough not to bother installing any.
