If you don't want to add the logo.nologo option to the kernel parameters then a tput reset will also clear the penguins, as will running setfont. In fact, it's quite hard to get them to stay around.

Try adding the reset command into /etc/rc.d/rc.local; then the screen will be cleared at every boot without further intervention by you.

If your hardware has a BIOS default for a VGA console, then using "vga=normal" in your bootloader rather than specifying a framebuffer console will stop the logos from appearing.

Ah! Now I understand!
I had no idea what this thread was all about, since I have never seen any logo appear on boot.
So I went looking into my ‘/etc/lilo.conf’ and, lo and behold, it has the following:
Code:
# Normal VGA console
vga = normal
Mystery solved...

I kinda miss good old Tux ever since I switched to GRUB2. I never really bothered to learn any of the startup options, but I definetely am not seeing Tux anymore.

Example menuentry:

Code:
menuentry 'Slackware-14.2+ GNU/Linux' --class slackware_14_2_ --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-simple-ayyy' {
	load_video
	insmod gzio
	insmod part_gpt
	insmod ext2
	set root=''
	if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
	  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root [ REDACTED ]
	else
	  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root [ REDACTED ]
	fi
	echo	'Loading Linux 4.19.25 ...'
	linux	/boot/vmlinuz-huge-4.19.25 root=ayyy ro  
}
I think I tried a graphicsmode with my old setup (recently upgraded this computer) but I think something was wonky with the proprietary nvidia driver, which is also a bit of a shame cause the VTT is at super low res.

Anyway, what can I try to add/remove to get Tux back?

Considering that most of the important things which happened in "IT" happened with "cute nicknames" and the like I would say if you're judging a project by it's name then you've more to worry about than "silly" names.
