Hi Barry - when it hangs, does pressing Escape show anything? Also, I've
updated the Plymouth wiki page so it would be interesting to know if
Plymouth is runnable via the initramfs and the live system:


Also, if you've got a serial cable, you could try running plymouthd with
'--debug-file=/dev/ttyS0' or similar to see if it shows anything

  No login screen unless "quiet splash" removed from boot line

Status in “plymouth” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm not entirely sure this is a Plymouth bug, but here is what's going

  MacBook Pro 1,1 running latest Quantal.

  This machine was running 12.04 just fine, then I upgraded it to 12.10.
  Now, whenever I boot it, I just end up with a black screen, no login
  screen, no apparent cursor, no response to keyboard.

  If, at the grub screen, I edit the boot line and remove "quiet
  splash", the machine boots to its login screen, although it sometimes
  takes quite a long time.  I don't see much on the console output that
  indicates what's going on though.
