Fix Plymouth on Ubuntu after installing NVIDIA or ATI proprietary drivers for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric

While I’m not currently using Ubuntu, I’ve been told that my script to fix Plymouth for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty works for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneirc too; lately I’m pretty satisfied by the OpenSource ATI driver, and I think that you should really give it a try as well.

Anyway, if you need it, here’s the script:

    Here on Oneiric it works partially with HD 3650. Boot loader is nice again without garbled text, but the Ubuntu logo with the red/white dots below is not the nice image, it’s just plain text.
    Perhaps you know what could be the issue? Thanks!

    Hi, it works for 11.10. Thanks.

    However, I do have mtrr errors (kernel: [ 3.416925] mtrr: type mismatch for e0000000,1000 old: write-back new: write-combining) which does not appear to affect the performance but does affect the boot time. I tried number times to change the mtrr at e0000000 to write-combining without success. Would appreciate if you can give me some pointers as to what could be done.
