I have slackware 14.2 installed on a spare computer without any GUI. My child loves to see the penguin bootsplash when the computer restarts and the kernel loads. Is there anyway to show them without having to reboot?
If you mean their logo, then this can be found from their site. http://www.slackware.com/~msimons/slackware/grfx/shared/slackpenguinlogo.jpg
From a non-X screen you can tools such as
fbi ( https://slackware.pkgs.org/14.2/slackonly-x86_64/fbida-2.14-x86_64-1_slonly.txz.html ) to draw the image on a console.
