Dmesg spamming in tty

Hello, i just booted up an archiso with my System76 Oryx Pro, and my tty is getting spammed with dmesg stuff, like audit and such, its unusable. Any ideas of how to workarround that? i already tried changing tty with ctrl alt fn, but other ttys are getting spammed too

"audit=0", but if it's "spammed" there's an actual problem that you want to look at - on a superficial scan, all my audits are from sudo calls.

Re: Dmesg spamming in tty

audit 0 in the kernel params? but how do i do that on the arch install iso?

EDIT:
i got it off by doing auditd -s disable
But why would it be on by default? i have installed arch on many systems and never encountered such thing.
Also the messages its spamming every 3 seconds or so are about systemd, msg='unit=reflector comm=systemd'

Edit the kernel command line at the bootmanager?

The audit system is enabled for quite a while now, but the message sounds like a bogus systemd timer for reflector (or a different issue w/ the unit)

Yeah, it was a problem after the install too, but i got it fixed by compiling the system76 firmware.
