Description Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-04-03 14:00:08 CEST
No plymouth bootsplash animation on kvm machines (with Cirrus Logic GD 5446). Seems that the cirrusdrmfb driver has a problem:

As workround we could set the 'cirrus.modeset=0' kernel parameter.
Comment 1 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-04-04 13:20:36 CEST
Added etc/modprobe.d/ucc-cirrus.conf to univention-corporate-client to disbale modsetting for cirrus driver.

-> more /etc/modprobe.d/ucc-cirrus.conf
options cirrus modeset=0

With the current thin client image no bootsplash is displayed in a virtualised thin client.
Comment 3 Moritz Muehlenhoff univentionstaff 2014-04-14 15:33:35 CEST
This was an error in my setup: We initially needed to set ucc/pxe/bootsplash=false to disable the bootsplash. When this was fixed I only made a ucr unset, which doesn't enable the bootsplash.

With the correct setting (=true, which is also the default) is works fine.
