Subject: Regarding the graphical boot and not showing kernel-messages.
While installing the beta i happily thought RedHat put in some
sort of patch to the kernel to not print out all those kernel-messages
to the screen while booting. When the install finished and i tried to
boot the system, i found the system still printing out
The thing is that while installing the system i got some pictures
showing up in the installer about (from memory, not sure
or if its 100% as it was written in the image) "Who understood those
kernel message anyway?".
But, the kernel is still printing messages. Is it not only the
init-process not printing messages and thats not the kernel is it?
Sorry if this has already been a topic.
Would it be a totaly loss if the kernel got patched not to print
information to the screen, and rather just logged to a file?
The things printed while booting is not realy errors but lots of
information about IDE and other cards.. etc. These information is not
realy interesting for all people, and maybe also not
easy to be taken for errors. Having the boot graphical at
this stage is
maybe hard, but only showing an "Init.." and showing only errors -
Well, if you really hate them, add 'console=/dev/null' to kernel command
could that be hard to make?
Probably and issue best taking care of by the real kernel-developers?
