Problem: If you install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 or upgrade some
Videocards shows the Bootsplash (now called plymouth”) not clear
or a black Bootscreen.
The terrible Bootsplash is default installed and can’t easy removed
cause deep deps of some pakets (mountall) don’t allow to purge.
– edit with #sudo nano /etc/default/grub
– change line “splash” to “nomodeset noplymouth”
– save and close nano
– run #sudo update-grub
..reboot and enjoy default VGA Console..
Server PCs: don’t need Splash, with the Ubuntu-Server CD you can
install without Plymouth!! then you only have to make a minimal setup,
then change kernel with aptitude from linux-image-server to linux-image
and install Metapaket “ubuntu-desktop”.
