When I boot Ubuntu 12.04, the progress-bar shows for only a few seconds, then the screen's background becomes a blank brown image for a long time (not a constant time), then it goes black for a few seconds. At last the desktop shows.

I feel bad when screen goes blank. How to show progress bar all the time when booting?

The answer to this may be specific to your graphics hardware, and the driver you're using. Just in case it is, could you list these? Also, if you have done any customisations to your boot (including your grub configuration) or xorg.conf. – thomasrutter May 28 '12 at 1:41
As far as I know, there has never been a progress bar. Fedora has something that looks like a progress bubble, but not Ubuntu. – mikewhatever May 28 '12 at 3:39
