Bug Description

Binary package hint: initscripts

1)

eve[~]% lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu karmic (development branch)
Release: 9.10

2)

eve[~]% apt-cache policy initscripts
initscripts:
  Installed: 2.87dsf-4ubuntu10
  Candidate: 2.87dsf-4ubuntu10
  Version table:

3)

no switch to text mode during bootup

4)

I see the switch into graphical mode, with a pulsating ubuntu logo.

During boot, the text "Starting boot logger bootlogd" appears - and this text causes a switch to text mode.

The system switches back to graphical mode, launching GDM and allowing login but having the switch from text (initial boot), to graphical (pulsating logo), to text (starting boot logger) and then finally graphical is somewhat jarring.

eve[~]% cat /etc/default/bootlogd
# Run bootlogd at startup ?
BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes
