Public bug reported:

Hi,

I installed edgy last night, and I modified the /boot/grub/menu.lst
file.

My kernel section looks like this:

title           Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-generic
root            (hd0,7)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/hda8 ro splash vga=791
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
quiet
savedefault
boot

1. The usplash works fine however the messages on the screen too dark. I
can't read the messages easily. In Dapper the messages was brighter.

2. I use vga=791 option which in Dapper caused 1024x768 usplash screen
with lesser size fonts and lesser size kubuntu logo than the default. In
Edgy this option has no effect. Has no effect means the fonts have a
same size like without the "vga=791" option and the the "kubuntu" logo
has a same size too. By the way the virtual terminals has 1027x768
resolution, so I'm sure the kernel not ignore the "vga=791" parameter.

Package version:

I don't think so these are serious bugs. Or maybe these are features?
