Description of problem:
rhgb doesn't prevent kernel boot messages from being displayed, but the install
screenshot gives the impression that it does. The screenshot should be taken
with messages that are actually hidden by rhgb.
What are you talking about? :)
The ransom note...
a 'quiet' kernel boot option could be added to GRUB to suppress the kernel
messages (an option could be added to redhat-config-boot to select text /
graphical booting and changing this option could add - delete the 'quiet' and
'rhgb' parameters in grub.conf).
Note this bug report has nothing to do with the fact that kernel messages are
displayed during the boot. It's about the image displayed as part of the
installation process. I hope the change in the summary makes this even clearer.
Fixed in test3.
The test3 installer still displays a screenshot that contains bits that are
printed by the kernel, and that are still printed regardless of rhgb.
Fedora Core 1 installer does not have the screenshot with kernel
I think this bug can be closed now.
