Bug Description

After a system starts up, I get a dialog saying something has gone wrong, and that's pretty much it. Pressing the report button has presented me with a new dialog saying plymouth has crashed.

The system was installed from a mini.iso, because the desktop iso can't seem to be on non-PAE CPU's.
