[Solved] Spammed with a nouveau message while installing Arch Linux?

Well despite being spammed the message which makes it impossible to partition my drive using cfdisk, all I could accomplish was setting up my wireless adapter. Here is the message: http://i.imgur.com/O6pIW0V.jpg

Is there any way I can solve this? It appears to happen in the Alt + Ctrl + F2 terminal in Ubuntu too. I have an Nvidia GTX 760. I am not using dual graphics. My only video card is the 760.

Surely it's possible to pass loglevel to the kernel. If not, it's a deficiency of the live media. But I doubt there is such a deficiency, I don't know of a bootloader or UEFI manager that does not support runtime editing of the commandline at boot.

So there is no way to even suppress the message? I'm not very good with Parted so I was trying to use the graphical one. I guess I'll use a live CD of Gparted to format my drive for now.

There is - pass loglevel=3 to the kernel (or 2 or 1, if 3 isn't enough). There should be a way to edit the kernel commandline before booting the live media. I'm downloading the Arch ISO right now to test. I currently don't have access to an UEFI machine though, so I can only test BIOS mode.

How do I pass loglevel 3 to the kernel? I'm not familiar with doing that.

Ok. I fixed it with

dmesg -n 3

. Thanks!

Re: [Solved] Spammed with a nouveau message while installing Arch Linux?

To do it from the time you boot, you can set the loglevel on the kernel command line as well.  I found that if I want to silence the systemd messages and stop dmesg from sending idiotic messages from the wl module, I have to use "quiet loglevel=3" in that order.

Re: [Solved] Spammed with a nouveau message while installing Arch Linux?

Should I make a new thread? I have another question. I followed the whole Beginner's Guide up to the point where I mount Arch Linux and chroot in. I then set up the language, font, etc and got to the wireless setup part. It told me to do a few commands then enter

pacman -S dialog

. I did that which I think I messed up after that. I misread the text because it said to reboot and use wifi-menu AFTER you install the rest. I rebooted right after I installed "dialog." Now when I boot into Arch with GRUB, it says that I am missing the kernel headers. I used the CD to boot and then I mounted the partition but then arch-chroot /mnt will not work. It says that the exec is invalid or something. Does that mean I have to reinstall Arch?

Oh, I guess I didn't even need to install dialog since my network has WPA2 TSK encryption. Oh well. Arch is fun to install so I'll do it over again. See you on the other side! tongue

Re: [Solved] Spammed with a nouveau message while installing Arch Linux?

I think you should mark this thread as solved and start a new one.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Chroot#Change_root

If you see the error chroot: cannot run command '/usr/bin/bash': Exec format error, it is likely that the two architectures do not match.

Not sure if this is the case, the exact error message would help.

That was the exact error message. Thanks! I'll mark the thread as answered now.
