Question Disable splash screen in kickstart file

I want to create a live image with the splash screen disabled so that when I burn the image to a USB flash drive and boot it the boot messages are displayed instead.

How can I modify the kickstart file to do this?

BTW, I created a USB and deleted rhgb and quiet from the kernel command in the /mnt/live/EFI/boot/grub.conf file. However, the splash screen was still displayed.

echo "# uglifying $LIVE_ROOT/$rhgbfile" >> $LIVE_ROOT/$rhgbfile
sed -i -e's/ rhgb//g' -e's/ quiet//g' $LIVE_ROOT/$rhgbfile
echo "# uglified $LIVE_ROOT/$rhgbfile" >> $LIVE_ROOT/$rhgbfile

I created an image, burned it to a USB, booted it and it worked!.

Then I tried the following modification

I created an image, burned it to a USB and booted it. This time it displayed the tri-colored bar progressing across the bottom of the display towards "F14" in the bottom right corner. I was able to login successfully.

I will experiment with both images to see which one works best for my application.

Thanks, this was very helpful info.
