Ubuntu – Can’t fix Plymouth resolution by any means


Due to a bad update to 11.04 i had to completely reinstall Ubuntu, now i got everything pretty much the way it was before, except for plymouth.I've tried every script i found, every turorial i've found,

i've installed Plymouth Manager, i've installed a plymouth theme that worked before…and still, just plain white text, if it feels like showing me something, 'cause at times i don't even get to see the text mode, so, is there anything i can do witthout removing the ATI driver?, can i get rid of plymouth if it's not going to properly work?, are there an alternatives to plymouth?

Just in case you didn't find this tutorial, it worked for me:


Rather than fixing Plymouth, I believe this just uses framebuffer during boot with a user-chosen resolution. It will give you more than text during boot, at least.
