Bug Description

When booting you see the grub purple, then a black screen with cursor, then a mode switch, then plymouth splash. We do not expect to see the black screen with cursor. This is either a kernel issue, or something before plymouth starts.

After much debugging it appears that grub may not be handing off the console in graphics mode at all. Booting with gfxpayload=keep seems to work pretty well.

Looking like the blacklisting is not working correctly:

    grub> hwmatch ${prefix}/gfxblacklist.txt 3
    error: incompatible licence

Adding a task on grub2 to investigate.

grub2 (1.99-12ubuntu3) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Add a GRUB_MOD_LICENSE declaration to hwmatch (LP: #850202).

Confirmed that the new grub2 sorts this out. Closing out the kernel task.
