Description Matthias Clasen 2007-05-11 03:57:47 UTC
It would be great to have a way to suppress all messages from grub.
(see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureBetterStartup )

I'll attach the Ubuntu patch for this purpose. It seems buggy though,
since it initializes quiet_boot to 1 and has no way to reset it it 0.
The initial value should probably be 0, then we can turn on the feature
by putting "quiet" in the config file.

Also, it seems to add a print statement:

+  grub_printf("Starting up ...\n");

Silence grub completely

For reference here is the patch I've been using for a couple of years
to shut grub up completely. It should be easy to make it optionally shut up.

So, what's the problem?

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:38:29 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 02:53:39 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-07-03 18:58:04 UTC
We're clear to close this one out now, yea, Peter?  We need to adjust the
default config I guess, still.
