RE: my last post. Errm, it's not just due to resizing SWAP, or perhaps not at all.

I'm building a box specifically for testing. I began with three primary partitions; 50GB, 20GB, 20GB, thinking that I'd use sda1 for virtual machine stuff. For some reason I had trouble with SWAP which was on the far right end of the drive, but I'd copied SWAP and four logical data partitions from another machine.

Anyway, today I decided it would be smarter to go 20GB, 20GB, 50GB in case I decided to increase the size of the OS with the virtual setup(s). I'm building right to left in the extended partition so I'll have room to play with.

Bottom line is after resizing the three primary partitions the newest Lucid did the same exact thing! No quiet splash at all, just a black screen! SWAP was not changed at all and it still mounts properly. No UUID's changed.

Maybe this kind of explains the layout:

My previous post was in reference to sda1 which is still Lucid, I'm just planning to convert it to Maverick. That sda3 is also Lucid and I'd planned on using it for building virtual machines (for testing). The one on sda3 is the latest to have plymouth fail after resizing.

I'm just curious why resizing a lucid partition would result in no splash?

I know this looks and sounds confusing :^(

BTW sda10, 11, and 12 are not even used yet but one will be Squeeze, another Mint 9, then I'll be hitting the OpenBSD and RedHat end of things to test compatibility with the newest grub 2.
