Splash screen

Post by faucon_2001 »


First. congratulation for this excellent distribution which is going to be the host system for my Atari emulator distribution BeePi.
I am strugling to run a splashscreen at boot. I am using fbi with the following systemd service :
  • [Unit]
    Description=Splash screen

    ExecStart=/usr/bin/fbi -d /dev/fb0 --noverbose -a /opt/splash.png

I have enabled the service and added to /boot/cmdline.txt : consoleblank=0 loglevel=1 quiet

But at boot, the boot text is still there and fbi is complaining that it doesn't find /dev/fb0.
The DietPi image is recent (downloaded yesterday), I am using a Raspberry Pi 3, and I have set the vc4_kms driver.

Any idea to have a splash screen instead of the boot text?
