    Ubuntu 7.10 No startup splash screen

    Something strange has happened. The normal Ubuntu splash screen with oscillating slider has disappeared. Instead I get a glowing but otherwise dead screen for about a minute. The screen then goes very dark before the normal
    Ubuntu drum roll is heard and the logon screen finally appears.

    Other than that the OS appears to be fine. Have I done something wrong in Grub?

    Re: Ubuntu 7.10 No startup splash screen

    take a look in the file:
    /boot/grub/menu.lst


    Code:
    title           Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
    root            (hd0,0)
    kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=fdd34c79-fa3e-4839-8238-51581b91fab8 ro quiet splash
    initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
    it should have the 'splash' option in the kernel line.
    to play with the options you can install startupmanager
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install startupmanager
    sudo startupmanager
