I just wanted to try a splash at boot, so I compiled my kernel with
these options :

device          splash
options         SC_PIXEL_MODE
options         VESA
options         X86BIOS

And added to my /boot/loader.conf :


Where splash.bmp is a 1024x768 picture.

It works well, but after the boot, the splash does not die and I must
press some key to remove it. For the moment I found a workaround to
prevent this by adding to the /etc/rc.conf :


Is this behavior expected or is it a bug?

Kind regards.
