Disabling Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) Boot Splash Screen

Sometimes, a verbose boot process is needed for debugging purposes. In order to see that, the splash screen need to be disabled. Following steps are for Grub2 which is used from Karmic Koala onwards.
  1. Open /etc/default/grub and edit:


    sudo vi /etc/default/grub
  2. Locate line that says:


    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
  3. Remove "quiet" and "splash".
  4. The new line will look like:


    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
  5. Save and exit.
  6. Update the grub:


    sudo update-grub
Note: To get the splash and the boot process messages, just remove "quiet".
