Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84356
"terminal serial" in grub.conf ignored when splashimage used
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:14 EDT
Description of problem:
My grub.conf does "terminal serial" after the appropriate "serial"
command for my setup. If "splashimage=" appears after "terminal serial"
in grub.conf, it boots using the VGA console instead of the serial port.
If "splashimage=" is absent or appears before "terminal serial",
then it correctly boots on the serial port.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up serial console
2. put "terminal serial" in grub.conf, leave splashimage= there
3. boot; see it use the vga console
Uses the VGA console.
Uses the serial console.
Worked right in Psyche.
