Aurora is back! How can I get rid of it?...


I just upgraded my M8 distro to 8.1. Now, Aurora is back as my boot environment. I preferred reading the command lines go by during boot (like I had in M8). How do I get rid of Aurora?

Try the Mandrake Control Center in the Boot Config section. I'm not sure if this is correct because I don't have mandrake.

Hi
The control centre boot config shows various themes( for want of a better word for the boot screens)
I think if you want the text version of the boot process you need to use nonframe buffer( but dont quote me on that as I am probably wrong)
I dont know maybe removing aurora via mandrake package manager would get you back to the boot style you like
I think mandrake 8.1 must choose the boot interface based upon what type of graphics card is installed. As I did have a S3 virge 4 mb card and that defaulted to the command line type boot interface, just installed a gf2 ti 64 mb card, reinstalled linux and it defaulted to using aurora.
Might work.

I just got rid of Aurora today actually.

There are two rpm packages and they seemd to be dependant on one another. I managed to remove them with the --no-dep switch.

Getting rid of them does display the bootup messages like it used to in M8.0

Find the packages with 'rpm -qa |grep Auro'

You can also uninstall it with mandrake's sowtware manager...I forget what they call it but all you drake users know what I'm talking about.

I use mandrake and I don't know what you are talking about because I am betting its an x window thing and I haven't used x windows since just after I started using linux..

It's not that I don't like X it's that the boxes I run have no keyboard and no monitor.. I use ssh and webmin to do everything that I need.

Ah...ok. Good info for a desktop user wanting to ditch it though so not a totally wasted post.
