Hi, thanks for your report.

Could you please provide some more information of your system??
What's the kernel you're running? ( you could see with a 'uname -a' command in a terminal)
Could you attach a list of your hardware?
you could obtain it typing "lspci -vv " in a terminal, as well :)

Anway, usplash is surely the wrong package. I'm reassigning to gdm. ( feel free to reassign as well, if i'm wrong )
