This splash is the best I've ever seen :)
Running Arch, the only thing missing was a background image ^^

Can I just ask why there are so many Ubuntu users wanting to use this Arch bootsplash. I mean like 70% of the content on this site seems to be dedicated to Ubuntu...why not use something from the distro you are running. I mean thats the point to me

I'm no expert but I don't think that you can since Ubuntu uses usplash and this needs fbsplash... I'm no expert though!

The INSTALL file is about as useful as a fart in an elevator. 4 lines? come on...
