Fixing usplash on Gobuntu

Filed under: Research — abbe @ 0130

The usplash screen (splash screen shown at the bootup) of Gobuntu is cool. So if you’re unable to get that screen because display mode set during usplash is unsupported, edit the configuration file at /etc/usplash.conf to suit your needs. Following is mine to display usplash at 1440x900 resolution.

abbe [~] chatteau $ cat /etc/usplash.conf 
# Usplash configuration file

After modifying, execute update-initramfs to update the initrd. I’m not sure if that is necessary. Anyways, Happy Gobuntuing… :)



  1. I used to use it at Philips.. Used to scare kids with usplash and beryl..
