[RESOLVED] Detailed Boot Screen?

Post by willroberts » 2011/07/12 17:31:37

I noticed that CentOS 6 uses the Fedora-style graphical boot screen (with the three blue/white bars at the bottom merging into one). How can I disable this screen so I can see detailed boot information?

Pressing "esc" during the boot process will switch to the detailed screen.

Not to hijack this thread but I had to say THANKS! hawaiian717. Removing the QUIET option from the grub kernel line should do the same but it does not. At least I have not had any luck with that approach. This is a GREAT tip.

It seems like the F keys work as well to interrupt the progress bar, but I would like to find a more permanent solution.

It works for me to remove rhgb quiet from the kernel command line in /boot/grub/grub.conf

This worked for me as well, but I removed the option in menu.lst. Thanks!

Perhaps you thought so, but:[code]
# ll /boot/grub/menu.lst
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 11 Mar 5 19:56 /boot/grub/menu.lst -> ./grub.conf
[/code] :-D
