My VDR box currently starts up like a regular Fedora Core user, auto-logs-in
and starts xine - much like I expect most of you do.
I'm looking for a way to make all the X startup and log in invisible to the
user. This is where my knowledge of X and gnome falls down.
Ideally, once the initial kernel messages have completed I'd like a VDR splash
screen (maybe even a progress bar) as things start up.
How do I do this? I've been looking at modifying xinitrc and xinitrc-common to
remove the desktop manager, but this seems a bit brutal.
Any ideas or thoughts?
