Bug Description

Hello,
By using Startup-Manager in Xubuntu, I had checked the box "show text during boot" and kept the default Usplash theme. I am able to see the boot script and the Xubuntu splash theme above with progress bar until log in. I did same proceedure in Ubuntu Studio, but instead of getting the bootscript, I get the U.St. logo stretched out on the right of the screen and bleeding off the screen even, while the left of the screen remains blank. Furthurmore, I don't get the progress bar anymore. Alternately, the logo appears with progress bar and below to the right there is "ok, ok, ok," appearing one below the other in green font but with no coinciding script to the left bottom of screen. Then after a few minutes, the screen goes completely blank for a long time until the login appears!

Earlier on, I installed and uninstalled some Usplash pkgs. before keeping the distro's defaults. I have libusplash0, ussplash and usplash-theme-ubuntustudio installed. Also in my boot/grub/menu.lst, my def options=splash=769 while my defoptions=vga=791

 Am I missing a pkg? Note: I tried to install sysv-rc-bootsplash but I get the error message:
sysv-rc-bootsplash:
  Depends: sysv-rc (=2.86.ds1-38) but 2.86.ds1-14.1ubuntu31 is to be installed
 PreDepends: bootsplash (>= 3.3-3)
I don't know which pre-dependency they mean when the available versions in Synaptic are all 0.X.X and the highest version is a 2.0. So I should assume that sysv-rc is not what I should be adding?

This must be a bug via the Startup Manager rather than wrong packages, right?

In passing can one install splashy (http://splashy.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu/) and still keep the Ubuntu studio theme?
Thnx in adv!

Added splashy and allmost all required pre-dependencies. In my boot/grub/menu.lst

"e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=splash vga=773"

Issue is RESOLVED! (without sysv-rc-bootsplash!)

Therefore probably my error, not a bug?!
