I have Suse 9.1, using Grub. If I select Linux from the Grub menu and hit F3 to select "verbose" (instead of "silent"), I get all the nice bootup messages. I would like it to do that every time.
I went in and edited my menu.lst file and changed splash=silent to splash=verbose. No effect. I still get the status bar and no boot messages. So, two questions, please:
1) How do I get it to default to the full verbosity?
2) Is there a nice list somewhere of the commands that are accepted after the kernel line in the menu.lst? I found a reference somewhere to the tree documentation, so I installed the kernel docs. Now, if I could find them...
Try to reinstall grub from Yast, after you've made the changes. Maybe creating a new ramdisk (mkinitrd) will do the same job. I suppose this is not working because of a missing 'verbose' background in the ramdisk, though I am not sure.
Well, before I tried all of that, on a whim, I tried just putting "verbose" in the command line manually. It worked. So I am going to try that before ripping everything apart. Just changed the menu.lst file, so we will see.
