bootup video

Post by nitrogen_widget »

Hi,
Followed this guide to play a video at boot so you can't see the bootup text but the video ends up playing as X starts up so you still see most of the text.

I'm guessing it's because dietpi boots so darn fast omxplayer doesn't have time to do it thing or it isn't being called early enough?
Is there something different I can do to make the video start sooner?

thanks.

It might be the service ordering needs changing.

List init.d ordering (copy and paste results if you can):

Code: Select all

ls /etc/rc?.d/
Look for the entires with SXXasplashscreen. You could try forcing it to start earlier with:

Code: Select all

update-rc.d asplashscreen 00 80
