I find that Fedora's usual graphical boot splash goes away when I install the
proprietary Nvidia drivers from rpmfusion.org
, replaced with a text-based progress-bar.
However, I found that all I needed to do to get back to the graphical version was to
change gfxpayload=text to gfxpayload=keep in the GRUB2 config. Given that it seems so
simple, I wonder why this isn't the default? Have I just shot myself in the foot in
some way that I'm yet to realise?
