Boot Messages

Registered by Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2006-10-19

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Boot Messages" for updated plans.

This specification discusses how we will get messages from upstart jobs onto the console or into usplash during boot when the user does not want a "quiet" boot.

Whiteboard

This exactly what I was looking for. The idea of using quiet in menu.lst for usplash to display boot messages is (to say the least ) an ugly hack. There should be a neat mechanism to configure how usplash works. AFAIK, currently there is no mechanism by the means for plain text file to control the working of usplash. It would be nice if this is implemented by the time of gusty release release.
