Problems All Over!!!
I got so frustrated with the usplash issue that I broke down and did a complete re-installation of LinuxICE2(took the whole day to do it). Now I got more than just the one problem(aggravating!!!!!!!!).
The list is as follows...
PARTIALLY RESOLVED: 1) Usplash still no change(should have tried it before updating since it worked in my previous install before updating the kernel).
RESOLVED: 2) Can't get my grub image back up(I saved all my images from my earlier install...was perfect before!).
RESOLVED: 3) Can't get nweather to update my location(even though I changed the zip code in nweather.py, it keeps showing the weather for the default location...also was perfect before!).
4) Still having problems watching youtube videos unless I download to my HD(I can live without resolving this problem...but would be nice to get this fixed).
I'm sure that its not me. I did everything by the book. Any idea what the problem is? These are the only issues I have, but they are bugging me(sort of like if you found a ding or scratch on your week old brand new Benz Coupe). Hopefully These issues can or will be resolved so I can finally be content with my install.
Thanks for any help in advance!!!
UPDATE: Problem #2 has been resolved!
UPDATE: Problem #1 is half resolved. My usplash is working properly on power down. When my system 1st boots up it starts usplash from sda4(my swap area), which always starts but doesn't remain up for the entire boot up sequence. Why?... I don't know. So I edited my menu1st default to always resume from there(it was resuming from sda5). Just got to get the power up side to run completly now...yayyyy!
kEV...Do you think it may be timing out too early?
UPDATE: Problem #3 has been resolved!
it does sound like usplash is timing out early. But I don't know why. Have you tried nemocrk's hacks yet on the new install?
I thought about it,but last time I did not only did my usplash not work correctly on startup, but on shut down also. Is there a way to extend the startup timer? I think that may be the answer. Maybe nemocrk knows how. I will wait until he responds to this post before trying anything else!!! Thanks Kev!!!
