User Luca Ferrari shows us how to do a simple modification of the FreeBSD Boot Loader, which is changing the ASCII logo to your own custom logo. In this instance it is the PostgreSQL elephant logo, and it is modified using an Lua script. Check out the Github page below for the instructions.

In order to use one of the logos, you have to:

  • download the Lua script from my Github repository, within the logos directory you can find the files
  • put the choosen file into the /boot/lua directory and provide read permissions;
  • edit your /boot/loader.conf and add the setting loader_logo depending on the chosen logo
