Boot screen in low graphics/text mode

When I had 10.04 I messed around with the boot image using a tutorial online to boot with the 800x600 ubuntu boot logo. However after upgrading to 10.10, I now just get "Ubuntu 10.10" in text and no pretty logo.

I reverted my changes (I backed up every file before making the changes), but this hasn't done the trick. :(

  1. How do I get the boot logo back
  2. How do I get the boot logo in 800x600?

Device: Dell Studio 15 (i7-720QM 2.8GHz), 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470 Graphics Card

Driver: ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver

Thanks!

This isn't directly related to your issue, but I encountered the text rather than image boot logo a while back. I installed a package called v86d which solved it, the guide below, tells you how to modify Plymouth. Hopefully, it can help you with your issue:

Having somewhat the same problem, either on 10.04 or 10.10: initial boot was nice, but just after installing proprietary nvidia driver, boot was in text mode!

I've found this page very helpfull:

Hope this help.

i faced the same trouble when i throw in a different resolution than which are natively supported. Esp no 16:9 resolution works. Make it 1280x1024 and it works all good.
