I use genkernel, and so I run:
Code:

# genkernel --splash --menuconfig all


Everything is successful except for one small thing:
Code:

* initramfs: >> Initializing...
*         >> Appending base_layout cpio data...
*         >> Appending auxilary cpio data...
*         >> Appending busybox cpio data...
*         >> Appending modules cpio data...
*         >> Appending splash cpio data...                  <---- here, and
*                >> No splash detected; skipping!           <---- here.
*
* Kernel compiled successfully!


So I get no splash screen when I boot up.

How can I fix this?

Many thanks.

This thread is old but I found it via a search engine,
so here is the solution:
Do:

emerge --ask media-gfx/splashutils
