Ubuntu 10.04: Boot Splash doesn’t display correctly

After installing Ubuntu 10.04 to my Lenovo S10-3, I got this minor problem which it starts the system with blank splash screen, a very minor problem indeed but still it’s a sort of a bug. Here’s the fix which I’ve found in the web:

  1. Add a line in your current initramfs modules which is located in
    $> sudo echo "uvesafb mode_option=1024x768-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
  2. Then enable the frame buffer  in initramfs
    $> sudo echo "FRAMEBUFFER=y" > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
  3. Finally, update the initramfs
    $> sudo update-initramfs -u
  4. Done.

    Thanks man.

    I couldn’t figure it out. Like you said, it was not really a bug but it was kinda annoying watching a black cursor flashing during the boot. You helped me to sort out the problem. Thanks.
