Hi to all,
During boot Seabios shows some text including the version number on top of the screen for a couple of seconds before switching to the boot splash. It doesn't happen every time, but it is really annoying when it does because it makes the boot much less fluid. I fixed this by enabling the vga_console later during the startup. I attached a patch to this email. I tried it in qemu and on my laptop.
Let me know what you think.
