       Splashy - a user-mode, POSIX and LSB compliant, boot splashing system
       for UNIX.


       /etc/splashy/config.xml - Splashy’s configuration file


       /etc/splashy/config.xml sets splashy’s behaviour during boot, shutdown
       inter-runlevel and error. It is an XML file where all values are
       enclosed in tags

       A tag is anything enclosed between < and >. An opening tag has the form
       "<tag>" while a closing tag has its name preceded with a backslash (\)
       character as in "<\tag>"

       Tags can be considered as folders. Each tag either contains tags or
       contains a value

       The value of the final tag affects in the field defined by its parents

       The following tag folders are supported:

               This tag is mandatory. It contains all splashy’s configuration
               values, listed below.

               The following values are supported:

               Absolute path to the directory containing the installed splashy
               themes. Default: /etc/splashy/themes

               Name of the theme to use. It must be the name of a directory in
               <themes>’s value’s directory. Default: default

               Full path to a theme to fall back to if the theme specified in
               <current_theme>’s value can’t be found. Default:

       <pid>   Full path to the PID file splashy will use to store its PID so
               that other processes can know if it is running. Default:

       Comments can be introduced by enclsing them between <!-- and -->. Blank
       lines are also ignored


       The following is a complete and valid splashy configuration file:

           <!-- themes directory: conventional path /etc/splashy/themes -->
           <!-- current theme could be relative the themes defined above or full path -->
           <!-- full path to theme to fall back in case of problems. DO NOT CHANGE -->
           <!-- this defaults should be ok -->


       Values are refered by their tag name prefixed with all of its parent
       tag’s names. For example: "/splashy/pid"


               Main configuration. Defines how splashy should be setup

               Location where splashy themes are stored


       splashy(1), splashy_config(1), splashy_config(1), splashy-theme.xml(5)
