Default Changes in booting with ubuntu-server 10.04

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hopefully this will be helpful to folks wanting familiar server console
behavior for Lucid 10.04.

First we killed the frame buffer, took out the splash screen and turned
kernel messages back on:

It is possible to get a fast frame buffer, vesafb with vga=0x314 for
example, but for some reason it kills kernel boot messages. So we stuck
with text.

On finding we could not remove Plymouth in a nice way, we disabled it:

I wouldn't be so hard on Plymouth if it were not for the ludicrous
package dependencies set up to guard it's existence. Probably a good
reason for that, just not explained clearly anywhere I looked.

Finally, we enabled more verbosity for Upstart to get useful console and
boot logging:

In the end we worked around the default console configuration issues
with our Lucid server KVM guests and have a nice text console.
