I guess its the udev which causes this problem, I am not too sure will like to investigate better this time.

I'm quite skeptical about it being udev. udev simply manages the /dev tree. More likely, it's something to with initrd and its contents.


RHGB is not good enough bootsplash seems to be better, and as a user I'd like a choice, bootsplash better.

I think as per Joe Christy it will be good to follow his work of swsusp and then pre-pare bootsplash patches. ...

FWIW, swsusp2 also has the bootsplash patches, though I've never used their capabilities. I'm not one for eye-candy so I mostly turn off rhbg in grub.conf, and frankly, when you get to fiddling the kerneldown at the closer-to-the-machine level that swsusp2 does, you *want* to see the messages that rhgb/bootsplash would cover up.
