All,
Is there a boot option to watch the drivers load instead of seeing the "Ubuntu" splash screen when the computer boots up?
Thanks,
-Shawn

Yes, there is.

If you permanently want this behavior, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change the line that looks like:



# defoptions=quiet splash


To either:



# defoptions=quiet


Or, for a super verbose login display:



# defoptions=


Then run:



sudo update-grub


After that you won't get the splash screen but instead text zooming down the screen.

If you only want to use these options once in a while and not make them permanent, when the grub screen menu/countdown appears, select the kernel you want to boot and hit, 'e', go down one line and hit 'e' again and remove the 'splash' and optionally 'quiet' arguments. Hit enter and then 'b' to boot the kernel like that.

If you don't want to edit menu.lst manually, you can install StartUp-Manager via synaptic. It will be in System/Administration/

An easier way to do this and also do quite a few extra things associated with boot-up is to install the Startup-Manager package.

Use Synaptic, or cut and paste this command into a terminal window:

sudo apt-get install startupmanager

You could've at least described a method of doing it, or at least tried to :)

You can use

Joeb,
Steveneddy must work for Microsoft. :wink:

And thanks for the [code] [\code] tip. I made another post in another part of the forum where I probably should have used that.
Thanks,
