    Default BackTrack 5 No picture in boot

    Hi guys I have installed backtrack 5 in my two netbooks and both of them are *not* showing this screen on boot:

    How to fix that? I know that is not a big problem but I like it very much so I want it lol

    I have tried fix-splash but with no luck :|

    Thanks in advance

    PS: The new release is working like a charm.. Now I'm running Armitage and it rocks!

    Urgh. Is this still a problem for people?

    Seriously, all the devs have to do is include a 5-line shell script in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks on the release image that everybody runs the ubiquity installer from and nobody will ever have to worry about this again.

    Is there any script available in order to fix that? Thanks

    fix-splash fixed the boot screen and login screen for me but broke startx. When I initiate start x the screen brightness immediately drops to the lowest level and I am left with a _ at the top left corner of the screen.

    Fix-splash also doesn't work for me.

    I wanted the old menu back, with all the Forensic and such options.

    Can someone help me please?

    @whitelisted
    What should that script do? I may update the iso and do a reinstall, if you can provide the script.

    Thanks in advance
