Yes I am using Sarge system which has directfb below 0.9.22. And I am doing 
this because in one of your earlier post you had suggested me to do it. I 
guess at that time you didn't know that I am using Sarge system.

I tried installing splashy from 
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/graphics/splashy and the install went 
fine except I got this error upon booting(specifically when the splashy 
client starts) which says something like relocation_error and then some wild 
characters and it was related to glibc. I don't know how to find that error 
message again in the logs so that I can type it to you exactly as it is.

Thanks for the effort for looking into this.
