Yesterday i’ve added a nice bootsplash to make the booting process a little bit nicer 🙂
I’ve choosen a low resolution (640×480) to make sure it will be displayed on nearly every display and to keep the mem cosumption as low as possible.
Also Olivier and i thinking about how to integrate plugins and additional kernel modules into FreeNAS. One option is to provide a harddrive installation that enables the user to add plugins and additional drivers (kernel modules).
I’ve added the plugins infrastructure (on client and build scripts) already and there is also the first plugin available: lcdproc (without GUI, will be added soon). A WebGUI to administrate plugins will be available soon, too.
