I am using a Raspberry Pi 3, and I set it up with the Adafruit 3.2 resistive TFT screen. I am using the
fbcp setup so that
frambuffer0 is being copied onto the screen. I would like a custom image on the screen during boot and for it to stay on screen until the main program starts. But right now the image goes up, but then it is replaced by boot messages and the terminal once the
fbcp is started.
Since the frame buffer copying acts like HDMI, is there a way to disable terminal and boot message output to the HMDI/fb0 so that the only terminal is over SSH? That way the only display would be images I loaded using
fbi, or my Qt app once it loads?
Edit: I found this question/answer that sounds similar, but requires a kernel recompile. In my case, I don't mind a few blips of text/black for now, so it seems like it should be possible by just making a custom splash screen on all framebuffers and then running
fbi as the first command on boot.
