The console cursor at boot keeps blinking if you follow these intstructions. This can be solved by passing vt.global_cursor_default=0 to the kernel (source).
Retaining fsck output
Is there any way to retain the output, to keep a record or a log if fsck does in fact do something drastic? Ordinarily one would > or >> to a file, but are not all filesystems as yet unmounted at this point? quequotion (talk) 15:22, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
- You can disable clearing of the console before the login prompt, see getty#Have_boot_messages_stay_on_tty1. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:02, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Add more info about i915.fastboot=1
As said here (https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Flicker-Free-Arch-Linux), i915.fastboot=1 now replaces quiet splash vt.global_cursor_default=0 rd.loglevel=0 systemd.show_status=false rd.udev.log-priority=0 udev.log-priority=0, tested on intel ivy bridge and it works well. --Sigmasd (talk) 14:52, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
