Ensure splashscreen support on armel images

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2009-04-22

Currently usplash does not work on our armel images. Depending on what splash mechanism (usplash, plymouth) we will use in karmic it needs to be made sure that this system works on the different supported framebuffers used on ARM based devices. Research needs to happen what ARM devices will be supported with KMS and how to support other setups that dont have it.

Done!

Should follow the Ubuntu desktop choice which is not to use anything because boot speed is very fast.

+ ARM is much slower than other archs -- should we keep usplash support just for armel? (plymouth is right out

2009/06/20 lool:
Karmic continues to use usplash, there are no plans to switch to plymouth for karmic; the only plan is to make boot so fast that we can drop usplash.
(please add a timestamp and your name when commenting on the whiteboard; it would be best to discuss specs on the mailing-lists, the whiteboard is meant for status tracking)
