not exactly ... as you would porbably be able to select your resolution.

640x480 is fine because it works even on old machines, but if u
generate a 1024x640 image then you'll have same problem as now.

the solution could be have different images like


and usplash should load the correct image reading from cmdline

if vga=791 then /usr/lib/usplash/

so here bogl should be able to generate even >640x480 but usplash
should read the resolution too.

as isolinux has the "select resolution" this should be fine for all
*buntu, if you enable that menu it will write automatically the vga=
string in cmdline

so ...
apt-get source usplash

is necessary too.

if you want to play with this no problem, but if you'll get it ...
maybe it should go in ubuntu-devel ....
