Kernel information

When you boot up Arch, you see all those kernel infomation. Usefull when you've got problems with your system, but ugly.

Is it possible to turn this of somewhere?

Re: Kernel information

disabling it would be windows behavior... Are you sure you are using the OS you you want?

Re: Kernel information

heh, it's not ugly - it's what makes all those windows users go "what the hell?" when they see you boot your laptop....

but I know what you mean.  I'd look into bootsplash, just search the forums.... bootsplash may be a bit involved to setup though...

I'm using linux for a few year now, and i only use windows for gaming, CAD and office. So i'm sure it is the OS i want!

I was just wondering if it was possible to turn this of (without a bootsplash).

PS. And for the windows thing, i'm sure linux can learn a lot of windows, for people that only use office and ie.
But i love linux  wink

Re: Kernel information

Try quiet=1 as kernel parameter. After boot you can always get the same info from dmesg or the logfiles.

I don't think it's ugly though, but that's a matter of taste. As for office stuff: There are some good open source office apps, like OpenOffice and Gnumeric. But for text stuff you really should use LaTeX. ;-)

Re: Kernel information

in lilo, you can pass the word "quiet" to the kernel this way:

image=/boot/vmlinuz26
        label=a26
        root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2
        read-only
        vga=792
        append="devfs=nomount quiet"

with grub, it should work very much the same


The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.

Re: Kernel information

Thanks, with grub you add quiet and your done.

title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part3 quiet ro

Less code is means more family friendly smile

And the office thing: Ofcource i use openoffice, koffice, abi etc. But with ms exel you can build more complex sheets (same for powerpoint and word). And my whole school is using windows  :evil:, so.....

But for the kernel thing, i got what i want, thank you all. It only took a few hours smile try that at ms.com  wink
