I'm trying to install xsplash in Gentoo. I've googled and googled and come up with nothing. I downloaded the sources from, compiled and installed them without issue, but now what? I can't seem to associate it with any runlevel ("rc-update -v show" does not list it).

Any tips? Thanks!

Are your set on xsplash for any particular reason, Gentoo has fbsplash in Portage. media-gfx/splashutils – SleighBoy Nov 24 '09 at 2:33
I've been reading up on the reasons behind using xplash - it actually leads to a significantly faster boot. That and it's really, really pretty ;) – Mala Nov 25 '09 at 5:08
