Bug Description

Binary package hint: plymouth

Release: Maverick 10.10
Pkg: Plymouth 0.8.2-2ubuntu3

The boot just stops at the splash screen. Can only boot through recovery mode then failsafe graphic mode. Tried many solutions for similar problems to earlier releases, but none work.

i have the same problem
i suspect that Bug #615925 is a duplicate

i tried purging and reinstalling the nvidia drivers and reconfiguring xserver but nothing helps

This happens to me on an amd64...
I did look at the error files from recovery mode failsafe graphics. (I'm on my mac partition now, so I don't have access to them) but it seemed that the nvidia driver wasn't loading...

I'm not sure if this helps either, but in recovery mode normal boot, a bunch of warnings fly pass the screen saying
"WARNING:" /etc/modprobe.d/ line [#]: ignorning bad line starting with 'fi'"

tags: added: amd64

Would you mind pasting /etc/modprobe.d/

Nothing happens in a diagnostic run. Do you think you could recreate the "line [#]: ignorning bad line starting with 'fi'" error? I don't fancy reading it line by line. :|

This is solved for me with the new nvidia 256.44 driver

What exactly do you need me to do?

I'd like to know what line your error was coming from, so I know where in the script to look.
