Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2016-02-15 13:05:15 CET
I can not reproduce this, nevertheless i changed univention-welcome-screen to use vt7 (that is what the bootsplash plymouth is using) and added some log messages (/var/log/univention/welcome-screen.log).
Comment 3 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-02-15 15:29:01 CET
OK: univention-bootsplash 7.0.2-12.100.201602151254 (i did not reproduce it, but it works with this version)
OK: changelog
