edubuntu-artwork-usplash hangs during boot in 8.10 ubuntu

Bug #323011 reported by John Wiersba on 2009-01-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
edubuntu-artwork (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: edubuntu-artwork-usplash

(May or may not be related to bug 318522 In my case I believe the package install completed successfully). See also my posts at and

usr/lib/usplash/ in /boot/initrd.img* causes a fully up-to-date 8.10 Ubuntu to hang at start of boot if edubuntu-artwork-usplash has been installed, but works fine with standard artwork.

I have a LUKS encrypted LVM partition containing root. Boot hung before asking for LUKS passphrase. Only difference between working files in /boot and failing files was initrd.img-2.6.27-9-generic. Only difference in the initrd.img archive was usr/lib/usplash/, which had been installed and symlinked after adding edubuntu-artwork packages version 0.1.0-55ubuntu1 (intrepid).

I was able to fix by uninstalling the 2 edubuntu-artwork packages and running
sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)

edubuntu-artwork (0.1.0-56) jaunty; urgency=low

  * drop edubuntu-artwork-usplash package as it is not well-maintained
    and makes little sense for an addon.
      Closes LP: #39186, #66726, #83410, #271376, #318522, #323011
  * bump standards version to 3.8.0
  * set Maintainer as Edubuntu Developers <email address hidden>
