    ubuntu 10.04 boot screen problem

    Hi guys. I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. All are ok except some small bugs. The biggest one is that the boot screen is not showing. After the startup of my netbook (MSI wind ns011) a black screen is coming up and after a while is shown the login menu. In the shut down the shutdown screen is shown correctly.

    My problem is how to fix that problem in order to show the boot screen (the purple with the red proccess bars )

    Thanks
    cya

    Are you using the nVidia driver?

    I don't think so:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27ae] (rev 03)
    Also in Hardware Drivers, it says that I have no prop. hardware driver needed
    Is a graphics card / driver problem?

    Thanks for your answer

    If I understood what trying to say, what arg in plymouth I must type in order to test? I tried plymouth --help but I didn't understand cause I have no experience with plymouth.

    Thanks

    You can try this. If this does not work then reverse it.

    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    and add this option FRAMEBUFFER=y, save the file.
    Then

    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Reboot to see if it works. No guarantees.

    There is a bug open.
