10.2 Boot up/Shut down interface
This is an odd question, and me being somewhat new to linux, makes it even harder to ask, because im not even sure on the terminology.
The part of the boot up/shut down interface that i am refering to, would be the part where it says, in short, for example:
nntpd [ OK ]
it has the penguin background with a resized terminal window with a translucent dark blue background. I realized that it also can act as a terminal session, because i obviously did something wrong and it was waiting for wlan0 to become free, and kept repeating the same message, but also i could type and launch commands and whatnot. So how would I go about getting that screen, interface, skin, whatever you want to call it, in a normal terminal session? how would i get that interface to come up at all during a non startup/shutdown sequence? I know it cant be as hard as i think, because even the initial terminal session has a linux graphic in the lower right hand corner.
If anyone knows how to do what i want, or ANY info on how that screen is brought up, let me know. I am very command line oriented, but jazzing up the interface would be nice.
thanks for any help
