Ok, here it goes:

This is _known_ to have bugs like possibly not switching to X. Consider this the
first real build packages ;) I know that the spec is still ugly and not
checked for BR and such, this will be cleaned up of course but it at least gives
you an impression about splashy :) Please let me know if it works and maybe on
what hardware it does work/not work so we can add a README.Fedora later on.

I hope I can fix some of the major bugs (trying an upgrade to svn version atm
to see what is resolved an what not) 

To get it to work your framebuffer needs to be activated (vga=0x317).

Don't try to build your own package as directfb is blocking this from being
build correctly (see #186521).
