Hi,

I have a system configured to encrypt the root filesystem using LUKS, and also configured to use bootsplash to display a loading screen. Kernel is configured with genkernel, using the --luks and --splash options.

The initial loading screen is displayed, prompting me to press alt+f1 to see the verbose boot, only when i press that do i see the prompt asking me to enter the LUKS password. After entering the password, the bootsplash screen returns and shows boot progress.

On a Ubuntu system, the password prompt is displayed at the bottom of the screen while the initial bootsplash image is displayed, is it possible to do the same with gentoo? Or alternatively, to not display the bootsplash screen until after the password has been entered?
