Hi Misalf
Oh, I put it in  /bin  because there is usually no  /local  directory in my file system root. It just seemed strange.
You need to change the code to point to  /local/bin/fbv .

The maintainer made an error in packaging, it should have been   /usr/local/bin/fbv

See the "logo.nologo" kernel boot code.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Finally I managed to create a splash screen, even if it'a a group of image but it's look ok (my opinion).
Here a demo : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmp65mAzUlw&feature=em-upload_owner

Thanks to all

When I worked on the plymouth code and wiki a few years ago one of the changes I suggested was to separate tc-config into rcS and tc-config, so that someone could put the splash code in rcS instead of tc-config under the assumption that by not changing tc-config that the splash code would be resistant to version upgrades. Have you tried it here? You would need to put it right before the call to tc-config at the end of rcS. Now that there is kernel splash code you are doing this without plymouth?

Hi andyj,

It's correctly what you say to use splash screen in another location and not in tc-config, but fbv is closing when the video driver is loaded because the resolution change. For this reason I must to restart fbv. In the other hand it allow to know the percentage of the operating system load.
I have not found another solution to create a splash screen with a minimum modification of the system such as fbv.
