    Yes of course, after changing that or anything else. See if "nosplash" works (?).

    Nope.

    nosplash is the same as splash=verbose

    how was I suppose to enter it. I just typed nosplash. should it be splash=nosplash?

    Just tried splash=nosplash and its the same as splash=verbose but it also takes away the bootsplash theme.

    I just changed it back to the way I had it with splash=verbose and removed quiet.

    This is the closest so far to what I am looking for but it would be nicer with just important messages rather then the entire console log. I wonder if SUSE is doing some voodoo with the Esc key to just show important messages. From the reading I have done on this subject tonight it seams that SUSE is one of the only distros that lets you hit Esc during a silent bootsplash.

    Edit: Also many server guys are filtering messages during the bootsplash by terminal. Normal boot I think is on tty1 but the logs are on tty7 or something like that. Or maybe its the other way around.

    OK I figured it out. I found this info on the Arch wiki. I love Arch, those people think just like me.

    This is how you do it if anyone is interested.

    splash=verbose console=tty1 loglevel=6

    Remove quiet altogether. This still shows a little more then I would like but I may lower the loglevel again to see if that helps.

    Here is a link that talks about loglevel's. Logging data

    EDIT: I tried editing my original post with solved in the subject but it will not let me edit it.

    loglevel=3 is the one I ended up deciding on. Its really close to just hitting Esc on the stock bootsplash.

    Thanks guys for your help, I really appreciate it.

    That's the one to get the messages, but in 12.1 verbose is very little
    verbose. For systemd you also have to add "systemd.log_level=debug
    systemd.log_target=kmsg", and that would be documented in systemd
    documentation. Plus, most of the text go to the log, not the display.

    No. Grep the directory, it will be somewhere.

    showopts is actually a grub token, not a kernel one :-)
    And splash might be a init token, not the kernel.

    Interesting. Let me try... Wow! I love it! :-D

    There is only one snag: it gets erased when the tty activates. In systemv
    mode there was a difference to the definition of that terminal so that it
    didn't erase:

    /etc/inittab:

    Code:
    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --noclear tty1
    2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
    3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3
    4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
    5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
    6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6
    Have you seen anything to do that now? O:-)

    If not, I can ask in the mail list.

    In statistics, normal means that what happens oftener. So yes, it is normal :-P
