SPLASHY_UPDATE(1) Splashy POSIX boot splash system SPLASHY_UPDATE(1)NAME
Splashy - a user-mode, POSIX and LSB compliant, boot splashing system for UNIX.
Splashy displays an image and a progress bar at boot time. splashy_update is used to send commands to the running Splashy daemon. See
"COMMANDS" below to know which commands Splashy understands.
text Sends text to Splashy socket.
<string> is a valid path to which Splashy will be chroot'd.
Switch to vt <number>.
clear Clears the text box area.
CLEAR Same as "clrprint". For compatibility with usplash.
exit Exits Splashy server.
Makes splashy prompt for a string. The first argument will be the prompt displayed.
Same as getstring except that the characters typed will no be shown, like in a password box.
Updates the progress bar to <number>%, where N is a number between 0 and 100.
Same as "progress". For compatibility with usplash.
Print <string> in the text box.
Print <string> in the text box and scroll down.
repaint Redraw the background image.
Same as "print". For compatibility with usplash.
Same as "scroll".
Sets the amount of seconds splashy waits for new commands. If that time is exceeded, it exits.
QUIT Same as "exit". For compatibility with usplash.
1 cannot open the socket
2 cannot write to socket
3 invalid args
255 /etc/splashy does not exist
Main configuration. defines how splashy should be setup.

uswsusp.conf - Config file for the s2disk program
This manual page documents briefly the uswsusp.conf file used by the s2disk, s2both and resume commands.
This manual page was written for the Debian(TM) distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
s2disk is a program that will save the the state of the whole system to disk and power off your system. After restarting your system it
will be put back in the exact system state you left it (this is sometimes called hibernation).
On a Debian(TM) system you can run dpkg-reconfigure uswsusp to manage this file.
snapshot device [=/dev/snapshot]
Device via which s2disk should talk to the kernel.
Specifies the device to write the image to. This is a swap partition or the partition that contains the swap file (see next parameter).
Necessary if a swap file is used for suspending. In such a case the device identified by the "resume device" parameter is regarded as
the partition that contains the swap file, and "resume offset" must be equal to the offset from the beginning of this partition at
which the swap file's header is located, in <PAGE_SIZE> units. The value of this parameter for given swap file can be determined by the
swap-offset program (has to be run as root) included in this package. [For this feature to work, you will need an -mm kernel,
2.6.18-mm3 or newer.]
Limit the size of the system snapshot image created by the s2disk tool, but it's not mandatory. Namely, the s2disk tool will do its
best to limit the image size as required by this parameter, but if that's not possible, it will suspend the system anyway, with a
bigger image. If "image size" is set to 0, the snapshot image will be as small as possible.
You can specify the kernel console loglevel which the s2disk/s2both and resume utilities will use to report progress. On a stock kernel
messages with level higher then 7 are usually not shown.
This parameter defines the operation that will be carried out after the suspend image has been created and the machine is ready to be
powered off. If it is set to "reboot", the machine will be rebooted immediately. If it is set to "platform", the machine will be shut
down using special power management operations available from the kernel that may be necessary for the hardware to be properly
reinitialized after the resume, and may cause the system to resume faster (this is the recommended shutdown method on the majority of
systems and hence the defaul). If set to "shutdown" the machine will be powered off.
If the "compute checksum" parameter is set to 'y', the s2disk and resume tools will use the MD5 algorithm to verify the image
If the "compress" parameter is set to 'y', the s2disk and resume tools will use the LZF compression algorithm to compress/decompress
If the "encrypt" parameter is set to 'y', the s2disk and resume tools will use the Blowfish encryption algorithm to encrypt/decrypt the
image. On resume and suspend you will have to supply a passphrase. By using a pregenerated RSA key, you can avoid having to type a
passphrase on suspend. See the "RSA key file" option for more information.
RSA key file
If this option points to a valid RSA key, which can be created with suspend-keygen, the s2disk tool will generate a random key for the
Blowfish encryption that will be passed to the resume tool within the image header with the help of the RSA cipher. Consequently you
only need to type a passphrase on resume.
If the "early writeout" parameter is set to 'y', the s2disk utility will start syncing the resume device early in the process of
writing the image to it. [This has been reported to speed up the s2disk on some boxes and eliminates the "fast progress meter and long
fsync wait" effect.]
The "splash" parameter is used to make s2disk and/or resume use a splash system (when set to 'y'). Currently the bootsplash.org and
splashy systems are supported. For the former you need a kernel patch, the latter is a userspace solution, but you'll need to install a
If you use initramfs-tools on Debian(TM) to generate your initramfs (and have splashy installed), the necessary files will be copied to
s2disk (8). suspend-keygen(8)AUTHOR
