    at boot, "error: no video mode activated"

    I have set no quiet boot and no splash, and the the first thing I see after bios post messages when booting up is "error: no video mode activated". Everything seems to work though, what's this error message about?

    The bug description has some hints on a workaround.

    Wow, that's an old bug. Luckily it's of no consequence, at least for me. Good that it's known, thanks for replying.
