Ubuntu 7.10 can't display splashboot into Thinkpad T42

Bug #154957 reported by Carlos Costa on 2007-10-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
usplash (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After a successful installation into a IBM thinkpad T42, I reboot the system, choose normal boot into grub, but the system dive into a black screen without the tradicional splash logo. After some seconds (the time to boot, I think) the GDM logon screen comes to authentication. After logon, everything is fine.

I tried to find out what's happening by type Ctrl+Alt+F[1..6] and thus I can read output into tty1(F1). I reproduce below:
Starting up ...
Loading, please wait...
kinit: name_to_dev_t(/dev/disk/by_uuid/1652ac38-4329-4ca2-aef1-69ed1bd449e0) = sda3(8,3)
kinit: trying to resume from /dev/disk/by_uuid/1652ac38-4329-4ca2-aef1-69ed1bd449e0
kinit: No resume image, doing normal boot...
