    Boot shows Splash but Shutdown does not!

    Hello, I am currently using 8.04 beta (which seems to be running fine so far). Anyway, my issue is when I shutdown my computer, it shows a bunch of text as to what its doing. My boot shows the splash fine, but shutdown does not. I believe I saw something about network (I have a Laptop that uses wireless internet, BTW). So that maybe the issue. Any fixes? Thank you!

    You should probably submit this as a bug report on I searched but did not find anything right off the top that matched your problem.

    I had this same problem using Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.

    Googling about I found:

    I've faced boot splash problem in my new ubuntu 7.10. It didn't show the
    bootsplash image. I've solve it here. Problem was in /etc/usplash.conf.
    Resolution was 1280x1024. It should be 1024x768 or 800x600.
    So edit the /etc/usplash.conf. It would be like the following

    Then run the following command
    $sudo update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r`

    Happy Linuxing.

    This fixed my problem I found I had 2048x1600 in there for some odd reason.
