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.
