Bug Description

I installed a text mode Utopic i386 via network. All works fine, except the plymouth is not working.
Instead of plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text, I manually installed plymouth-theme-text, and make sure the boot parameters has splash:
$ cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinuz-3.16.0-17-generic root=/dev/mapper/utopic32--vg-root ro quiet splash

When booting, there is no splash on the screen, and the booting messages are still shown on the screen.
If you need more info, please let me know.
