OK, if any of you are having problems with the long boot time with a blank screen in Xubuntu, Kubuntu, or Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), here's how to fix it...

sudo nano /etc/usplash.conf


And set both values to your monitor's default X and Y resolution (my laptop, for example is 1280x800, so the values would be 1280 and 800, respectively).

After that,

sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash


It should fix the long boot time and now you should see a nice bootscreen! Please let me know if my instructions don't work.

i noticed something when shutting down that suggested a screen resolution problem:
, some plain text is displayed (as usual for 'buntu) - but the characters are large and blocky.

good luck with leccy eng !

Yeah, ATI graphics tend to behave weird in Linux, 32-bit or 64-bit (doesn't matter, it's the same kernel all around, so it's the same hardware support lol). Hopefully they will improve some more in the future.

And thanks, yes I am majoring in EE. 5 quick years of college and I'll be there!
