Shutdown splash screen covered by tty1

So I have a really nice bootsplash which I would like to display when I shutdown. If I shutdown using gdm, it shows the splash screen. However, if I run

sudo shutdown -h now

the splash screen is covered by tty1.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Shutdown splash screen covered by tty1

Did you ever fix this?

When I do "exit" "shutdown" it show tty1 and login prompt cmd line screen before it turns off. hmm

Re: Shutdown splash screen covered by tty1

There is no longer a splash screen included in Statler; therefore, you *should* see tty1 when shutting down unless you have installed something like usplash or Plymouth, or are using the February 2011 release which came with Plymouth.

Shutdown looks like this:

My boot looks fine though:

Possible to get rid of the "login" prompt during "shutdown"?

EDIT: Also, I know this shutdown beep is going to annoy others. How do I nuke it?

So far I tried muting using alsa mixer and it still beeps hmm
