Hi,

My computer is running fine, however at boot up, when the Ubuntu bar is loading, I'm presented with loads of text and [OK]'s.

How can I hide this?

Thanks

Install via terminal:

sudo apt-get install startupmanagerGoto System->Administration->Startup-manager and on the Boot Options tab under Misc. topic, uncheck "Show text during boot"

OK, I installed the program, and that box isn't ticked.

Any ideas why the text is still being shown?

Thanks

In your menu.lst on the kernel line do you have "quiet splash". If you don't add it and it should hide the text.

Yeah it says quiet splash.

Any other reason why the text might be showing?

By default, Ubuntu is set to show nothing if no service fails to start. I rarely get those Matrix-like text flowing through the screen, but when I look closely, it starts with one service failing to boot up.

Do see only text or the logo + bar + text. If you see only text, press Ctrl+Alt+F7 and see if it hides the text.

I start off by seeing the Logo and bar, then very shortly after, it is all replaced by the text.

I tried Ctrl-Alt-F7 and nothing happened.

Is there a way I can find a log of that text that is appearing and post it on the forums to check if anything is wrong?

Thanks

Seems like some error message is coming up and that is showing the tty text output..
