[Gensplash] - Silent mode during shutdown

Hi,

is there any way with gensplash to get the "silent mode" during the reboot/shutdown?

I'm using gensplash with kernel 2.6.16-beyond. Thanks!

Not at the moment.  Currently Arch shutdown scripts kill running processes right at the beginning, which kills the gensplash daemon before it even gets started.  At least I think that is the problem.

I'm open to suggestions.

Re: [Gensplash] - Silent mode during shutdown

Solution can be something like VERBOSE_INIT = no in rc.conf

UPD: I mean, to disable any output initscripts produce

About improving initscripts to make them optionally be silent

Re: [Gensplash] - Silent mode during shutdown

They are optionally silent.  We're talking about actually enabling a progress bar on shutdown.  Sadly:

silent_reboot = yes

In rc.conf won't crack it!

Re: [Gensplash] - Silent mode during shutdown

In theory it's not hard but in pratice you have to re-write the way the rc.shutdown works - I think you do at least.  If I had a minutes peace at the moment I would take another crack at it.  I have had it partially working but it's not tidy at all.
