On the machines that don't do splash I did a fresh install with plain old

No changes made to any of the above.

Intel 855 Gm on a Dell 1150.

I have followed all the suggestions so far with no luck.

If I go into Yast>System>Runlevel Editor and look at the splash entries,
Splash Early and Splash Late are running. Splash is not running so I
click start and I get the error message :
/etc/init.d/splash start returned 5 (program is not installed).

So I look at /etc/init.d/splash and it is identical to the machine that
works. Then I look into /sbin and I find splash and splash.bin which are
the same as the machine that works. I checked the splash rpms and they
are installed. To be sure, I remove and reinstall them but problem
remains the same.

Just now I did a
cat /proc/splash
which returned no such file or directory.

On the machine that works it returns
Splash screen v3.1.6 . . .: on

So my question now is how is the /proc/splash supposed to get the correct

I wonder if the others with this problem have the same result with
cat /proc/splash.
