    Support for frame buffer devices FB->VESA VGA graphics support FB_VESA

    Select all in the:

    Console display driver support ->

    selct all in the:

    Bootup logo LOGO->

    -in the GRUB, in the file menu.lst fix this row:

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.29.3 root=UUID=d5b52903-5.... video=vesafb vga=0x0323 ro quiet

    -in the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf, comment this row:

    #blacklist vesafb

    -in the file /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, add:

    fbcon
    vesafb

    -in the end update initramfs this command:

    update-initramfs -u

    Same situation here. I tried everything that could find on net (including everything stoner_di mentioned above), but was unable to get tux logo on boot.

    Is this maybe because ubuntu uses upstart as init system?

    Is that hard to get this "native" linux feature on ubuntu system?

    On most slackware based distros just adding vga=790 to kernel line solves the problem.

    Any help would be appriciated

    Тhank you, Friend.
    Nobody else wants to talk about it.
    My searches for TUX bootup logo continue. Maybe somewhere in the init fails there is a ban on his appearance. No one developer to help?

    Anyone got it work? "TUX logo at boot"

    Today i installed BURG Bootloader - it`s very nice - and i was wondering if someone know how to make ubuntu boot up in text like this.

    I have modified:

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    to

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
    but it`s a mess up.

    If someone have a solution plese post it.

    Cheers!
