Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

usplash no longer present by the time gdm runs 'initctl emit...'. This causes the machine to hang. Killing the initctl process allows gdm to start. Attached is the output of 'ps auxfww ; status usplash' just before 'initctl emit...' is called.

This bug was fixed in the package upstart - 0.6.3-7

---------------
upstart (0.6.3-7) karmic; urgency=low

  * Ignore initramfs pids that don't exist. LP: #440071.
    - you still need to ensure that the pid's parent is init, there's no
      cheap way to test for that.
  * Remove "console owner" and "console output" from rc scripts.
  * Try harder to remove dbus-reconnect.conf
