[SOLVED] Error instead of logo at boot

After a fresh reinstall I made a reboot, it works - but there is no logo (Archlogo or Tux) at the beginning, just 4 lines describing /sbin/modprobe.
Something like (output of '/sbin/modprobe --help'):

Usage: /sbin/modprobe [-v] [-V] [-C config-file] [-d <dirname> ] [-n] [-i] [-q] [-b] [-o <modname>] [ --dump-modversions ] <modname> [parameters...]
/sbin/modprobe -r [-n] [-i] [-v] <modulename> ...
/sbin/modprobe -l -t <dirname> [ -a <modulename> ...

I use grub2-bios with '/etc/default/grub':

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=8
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Arch Linux"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

Re: [SOLVED] Error instead of logo at boot

The modprobe help message is harmless, and it's been fixed in mkinitcpio 0.7.
