Where did my penguins go?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I modified /etc/grub.conf on my ThinkPad W700 to show the boot-up process as text. I did this by commenting out "hiddenmenu" and removing "rhgb" and "quiet" from the kernel spec line. The W700 has trouble with a tickless kernel in F12 and needs "nohz=off". The first stanza is shown below.

The W700 has an nVidia display and uses the nouveau driver. Immediately after the menu screen in F10 and F11 I'd see 4 penguins (quad core) as the initialization began. It was kinda neat, but in F12 there's just black space where those penguins would be. Where'd they go? Is this an artifact of the nouveau driver?
