I am not sure what you mean with “these messages are normal”.

As I understand it, there shouldn't be any messages during the boot
process, but after usplash I see some messages for a short time
flashing. I thought this shouldn't be the case as described at:


“Boot Experience
We've done some work on improving the overall look and feel of booting
the system. Please open bugs with the tag "ubuntu-boot-experience" on
any messages you see flashed after grub loads and before the new Ubuntu
Splash screen (xsplash) displays. If you have trouble catching them
before the splash screen loads, you can also check vt1 or dmesg output
for copies of these messages. We also accept photos or video attachments
if that's easier, however please make sure the text is readable.”

Have I understood something wrong?

i have tried xubuntu and its boot don't have any flashing thing its clean like an OS. but when starting ubuntu the blinking is there it should be clean so that it look like a master piece.
in other words boot should be text free

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, I am closing it because the bug has been obsoleted in Ubuntu 10.04 - The Lucid Lynx (this is because of the switch from usplash/xsplash to plymouth). It won't be fixed in previous versions of Ubuntu because the package doesn't fit the requirements for backporting. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports for more information.
