Ubuntu :: 64bit Won't Boot Past Splash Screen

Jul 13, 2011

I just recently installed 11.04 fresh onto my computer. Everything's been working great and i've been enjoying the new interface immensely. However, today when i booted my pc up, after i entered my password and logged in, I'm stuck at the splash screen. I can move the mouse and i have the default 11.04 image up on the screen, but ive got no menus or taskbars and i know it hasn't logged in yet, because my wallpaper isnt up. I've restarted a number of times and this keeps happening.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freeze Screen After Reboot And Get Past The Splash Screen?

May 12, 2011

When I install Ubuntu 11.04 with Wubi, I get this freeze screen after I reboot and get past the Ubuntu splash screen: url

As you can see, it's a scrambled picture of my Windows desktop. This happens with every other version of Ubuntu also.

I'm running a 64-bit PC and I don't wanna waste another CD or use a USB to install, because I actually progress further in my efforts whenever I use Wubi.

Ubuntu :: Won't Get Past Splash Screen

Sep 3, 2010

I just used the update manager to update to the latest kernel. There were other updates there, but I can't remember what all they were.

Now the computer won't get beyond the splash screen. I waited about 15 minutes the first time for it to load. When I hit esc during the splash screen, I got this warning

Code:
GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid-r(): failed due to unknown user id (0

After that I think there is more, but my screen runs out of room, but I have this sense that there is more.

Anyway, that might have nothing to do with the problem. When I boot to recovery mode it finds all the stuff plugged in to the motherboard and USB drives then just stops.

Booting to the old kernel works just fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Clean Install Will Not Boot Past Splash?

May 18, 2011

I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Past The Boot Screen?

Sep 30, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu on my desktop. I have a dual-boot option between Ubuntu and Windows Vista. When I woke up this morning, my Ubuntu screen was frozen so I attempted to reboot...but I couldn't get past the boot screen. I can get into Windows just fine, but selecting Ubuntu just keeps cycling me through the initial boot screens over and overI am a still a beginner so please talk to me as though I were a child. Otherwise I'm sure I'll be confused.

Installation :: Ubuntu Won't Boot Past Loading Screen / Get This To Work?

Sep 4, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a Dell computer of mine but I can't get it to boot past the loading screen. I'm using 10.04 live CD. At the loading screen (boot, memory test, etc..) I select to boot the live CD and after that, I get a black screen followed by no signal from my monitor. My monitor is a 42" LCD TV (I had plans to turn this PC into a HTPC using Ubuntu and Boxee). I know Linux will work on this box, because it has in the past. Now, before I used to have an ATI Radeon X 1300 PCI-E card and now I am using an ATI Radeon 2900GT, and since cannot boot.

Does anyone have any idea on how I can get this to work?

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.10 Fails To Boot Past Startup Screen / Mac G4

May 18, 2011

I just recently put Ubuntu 10.10 for ppc on a Cd-R and installed it onto an old Mac I had found. The installation seemed perfectly fine I booted the computer and was presented to boot with two options "Linux" and "old" or to press enter and boot default. I had decided to boot default and it reaches the splash screen where the loading bar advances two dots and then completely stops.

Ubuntu :: Boot Hangs Up On Splash Screen?

Jul 19, 2010

So I turned off my computer the other day (I leave my laptop on, pretty much 24/7 I only turn it off if I have to, or I forget to plug it in I turned it off this time just because it was feeling warm)...

And when I went to turn it back on, the splash screen was big and ugly looking, then the orange ("loading") dots loaded to the end... but then it just stopped.

My computer wouldn't boot up... so then I used one of the older versions (you know grub lets you select versions before upgrades or whatever)... and the boot splash was the nice small version... and it loaded just fine, but then after the splash screen went away... the monitor just stayed black... same thing with the version before that.

So then I tried recovery mode on the first one (the latest), and when I clicked "boot normally" it took me to shell. However, everything was working fine, I could load up my non-x dependent programs like IRSSI just fine.

I think it has something to do with me installing the ATI proprietary driver (which was stupid of me, Ubuntu was handling my graphics card perfectly without it... and I hate using closed sourced software).

Jan 11, 2010

I don't know what caused it, but as I boot into Ubuntu (9.10), the login screen never appears. Boot splash shows,then the cursor shows up but never the login screen. I haven't found anything that will reset the default gdm or login screen that works.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Freezes On Boot Up During Splash Screen?

Feb 14, 2010

I set up a dual boot on my laptop a few days ago, between Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 (installed from Live CD). All the hardware is working fine.

Anyway, SOMEtimes, during the splash screen , the screen turns off (physically turns off) and the hard disk seems to stop. I cant do anything appart from force it to power down.

Yet sometimes, it boots up fine.

I want Ubuntu to work first time EVERY time.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Changed Boot Splash Screen?

Jul 20, 2010

I recently installed my first distro, Gnome Ubuntu Linux 10.04 via WUBI dual-booting alongside my Windows. I decided to try the other desktop environments. So I installed Kubuntu-Desktop (KDE) and Xubuntu-Desktop (XFCE) using Synaptic Package Manager.

However, Kubuntu KDE changed the boot splash screen into a from the default Ubuntu one, to the Kubuntu one. Also Xubuntu XFCE changed the log-in screen to the Xubuntu one. I DO NOT want these changes. I just wanted Normal Ubuntu-branded Ubuntu Linux with the option of logging in into the desktop environment of my choice.

I'd like to change the boot splash screen from the current 'Xubuntu' text in white on a black background.Making changes in Settings->Xfce 4 Setting Manager->Session and Startup has had no effect, and Startup Manager does not display an option to change the splash.

Ubuntu :: Boot Splash Screen With Purple Background

Feb 10, 2011

I switched back to my ubuntu installation few hours ago and I couldn't notice the strange boot screen! I remember that it used to be orange, there was the ubuntu logo and a nice loading bar. All is displayed now is a horrible purple background with just the text "Ubuntu" in the middle and a few dots just below it, showing the loading process.. I don't know how to restore the classic splash screen (I also found the original background in /usr/share/images/xsplash ).

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Can't Change The Boot Splash Screen

Aug 3, 2011

I have a Dell dimension 8300 dual booting with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10. I installed BURG on it since I didnt like the text grub style. Problem is I cant change the splash screen no matter what I do, or changes I make. My screen resolution is 1280x1024 and my video card is an Nvidia card.

Originally the splash screen was a purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and some dots on it. After installing the plymouth themes, now it has changed to a blue screen with Kubuntu(?) on it... Id like to know whats wrong and how can I change the splash screen?

UPDATE: Ok I went to synaptic and saw plymouth.kubuntu-logo and kubuntu-text were installed and enabled (had litle ubuntu logo to the side). So I removed those 2 files then did a reboot. Now im back to the purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and the dots but I still cant change the splash screen...

Ubuntu :: Reset All Personalization Such As Splash Screen And Colors In Grub Splash To Default?

Apr 25, 2010

If I re-install Grub 2 from the live CD should that reset all the personalisations such as as splash screen and colours in the Grub splash to default? In my case they are not resetting. I would expect them to revert to the default black/white you get when initially installing the OS. the Grub timeout to be a lot less than its supposed to be? e.g. the default timeout setting of 5 seconds is more like 2 or 3 in reality, and when I set my prefered value to 2 seconds it results in being about 1/4 sec or so.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Messed Up - Get Random Command Lines Mixed In With The Usual Splash

Jan 26, 2011

Since updating my graphics driver on ubuntu 10.10, My splash screen has been inconsistant and messed up. Sometimes ill get random command lines mixed in with the usual splash, sometimes the splash wont show and it will just be black till the desktop appears, sometimes it flashes on and off. I originally tried fixing the resolution and just made the problem worse. Then I tried installing a new splash via gnome-look.org, but it just made my shut-down splash blank and didnt effect my splash at startup. I just want the original splash that ubuntu is supposed to have.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Startup - Goes Blank For A Minute Then Briefly Shows The Splash For 5-10 Seconds

Mar 26, 2011

I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, and on the start-up after I pass the GRUB it goes blank for a minute then briefly shows the splash for 5-10 secs and then jumps to the login screen. Also the screen is offset by about 10-15 pixels but from the login screen onwards it is centred. (It's also like this for if I'm in recovery mode)
How do I fix this and Im wondering if it is a hardware problem?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Splash At Boot And Different Screen At Shutting Down?

Mar 15, 2010

I have never been able to see the splash screen, something that I'd like. I have checked the options on the bootloader and it says "splash=silent" (that's disabled?). I found it confusing, because the ubuntu kernel boots with "splash" but when I try that option on OpenSuSE 11.2 it doesn't.Also when I shut down the laptop the screen goes crazy, only the two top cms shows "something" which are blinking and crazy green and white console words moving from one place to another so fast I can't even been able to read what it actually says.Either way, the laptop shuts down without any problem (?). I think is the normal shutdown process (without splash) but it's a bit perturbing. I've had had a couple of kind of "aesthetics" issues, but far from critical. My overall experience with OpenSuSE after 4 or 5 years being "debianized" have been very nice .

Ubuntu :: Boot Stops At Splash Screen Waiting For Sdc1 10.04 / Undo It?

Jun 6, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04. I'm trying to become familiar with the file system. I noticed my MP3 player (USB) is not mounted automatically when I plug it into the USB cable. I searched Google to find out how to auto mount this device and it worked. However, I didn't give this enough thought to what I was doing I guess. Now if the MP3 player is not connected to the USB cable the boot process stops at the splash screen waiting for the device. The window on the screen states the following:

The disk drive for /media/sdc1/ is not ready or not present. Continue to wait or press S to skip mounting or M to manual recovery.

I don't remember what I did to start this whole mess so I don't know how to undo it? Could someone please help me undo this? I would like the device to auto mount ONLY if it's plugged in if this is possible.
