Default Bug#488094: linux-image: splash does not work with uswsusp and X

Package: linux-image
Severity: normal


I tried to get a splash screen working on two Lenny machines with very
disapointing results.

I can get both splashy and usplash to display as long as the graphics
hardware is not too dodgy. However, for the two machines I use regularly
splash screen cannot be used.

The problem is that resuming with splash screen active locks up the
machine. It is possible to install usplash and resume with the nosplash
option, or edit the initramfs resume scripts to turn off usplash as
suggested in bug 468735. However, this turns off the splash screen in a
very early stage of the boot process.

I also tried splashy. This one needs to have the framebuffer set up
separately, and resume worked with just the framebuffer. It even works
if console is switched fast enough during boot so that the resume does
not happen with splash displayed. Still if I leave the splash screen on
the machine locks up. I use the hibernate option to switch to console so
there should be no difference .. but it does not work.

Since I tried an intel card and a mobile radeon card, usplash and
splashy, it looks like a more general problem. Unless there are so many
bus that no matter what I do I hit a different one ;-)

It would be nice to have this sorted out. It is certainly possible, it
tends to work in Ubuntu.
