    Default One Last Hurrah For USplash: A New Theme

    Phoronix: One Last Hurrah For USplash: A New Theme

    Pushed into the Jaunty repository this morning for Ubuntu 9.04 was a new theme for USplash. This Canonical project for providing a splash screen at boot-up on Ubuntu is being replaced by Plymouth with Ubuntu 9.10 (the Karmic Koala release), but there is a new Ubuntu theme as one last hurrah...

    Why is it that whenever X starts up there's always some garbled mess on the screen before the mouse cursor shows up?

    Depends on the driver, I guess. I've never seen it happen on any of mine... (well, except when opengl stuff crashes)

    I don't get it, what's so exciting about a boot splash screen? Better try to improve boot times, suspend/resume support and power management so there's no need to watch a useless splash screen, really.

    It just shows that they are finally working on the looks.

    it happens in xf86-video-ati driver.

    i guess memory is not cleared before display is initialized. i can see checkerboard of my previous desktop session even after hot reboot of the entire system (ctrl+alt+del one).
