Talk:Disable clearing of boot messages
Re. Method 1: edit /etc/inittab
There was one problem with that method. It gave a sort of half-way login prompt, then went on with the rest of the startup routine. It looked like this:
::Loading Keyboard Map: us INIT: Entering runlevel: 3 :: Starting Syslog-NG myhost login: :: Starting D-BUS system messagebus :: Starting Hardware Abstraction Layer :: Starting Network :: Mounting Network Filesystems :: Starting Crib Daemon :: Restoring ALSA Levels _
Now I don't know about anyone else, but I can't see where to login. The prompt is definitely misplaced. Maybe this section needs a little more work.
Further, was one supposed to add the c1, c2, c3, c4, etc lines up to a particular unknown number, or was the c1 and c2 lines plus three periods the correct entry? - KitchM 20:46, 24 October 2010 (EDT)
Problems with article
- Instructions, related to
/etc/inittabare not formatted, according to Template:Keypress.
- Note about "Given the recent change in agetty, the mandatory change is" is totally misleading.
/firstname.lastname@example.org according to this commit worked for me.
