Description Mikael Carneholm 2003-03-04 09:31:31 EST
Description of problem:
If you chose to install a desktop (or workstation), I don't see why I (as a
desktop user) need to know that smbd or postgres or httpd or ... is starting.
This is relevant only for servers installations, and should thus only be
displayed (by default) for servers. Summary: only display boot messages if it is
turned on (and it should only be turned on by default for server installs), and
you should have to explicitly turn it on for desktops/workstations to see it.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot/reboot the machine
2. Watch the messages
3. Realise that this info is not something a desktop user should see
Actual results:
A lot of boot messages

Expected results:
A slick (black) "Red Hat Linux" screen with shadowman logo and possibly some
sort of progress bar displayed during boot.

Additional info:
If Linux shall succeed on the desktop (as well as on servers), it has to adapt
itself better to the different types of usage scenarios.

We may look into this at some point in the future. But not right now.
