Bug Description

Binary package hint: plymouth

I have this issue of plymouth starting in fallback text mode everytime. However, when i log out, i am able to see the graphics.
i have tried updating the initram using sudo update-initramfs -c -k all but it did not help.
I think this is a bug.

Similar to bug #793128, except this is with fglrx instead of nvidia and the vesafb module does get loaded. Perhaps this is a race condition with the 'modprobe vesafb' returning before the framebuffer is actually usable?
