removing graphical boot splash screen

Hello,
I have just install FC10 for ppc on my PS3 and would like to remove the graphical boot splash screen. I have removed all the packaged named plymouth-... but the splash screen is still there; I'd like to see at boot all the initialization messages.

How can I do?

Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure you were supposed to uninstall plymouth. It would have been easier to remove rhgb in kernel line...

removed rhgb from yaboot.conf but still doesn't work

Hello,
now my yaboot.conf looks like

boot=/dev/ps3da
init-message="Welcome to Fedora!\nHit <TAB> for boot options"

partition=1
timeout=80
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
delay=5
enablecdboot
enableofboot
enablenetboot
nonvram
mntpoint=/boot/yaboot
usemount

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.ppc64
label=linux
read-only
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.ppc64.img
append="quiet root=UUID=00a16a0f-07c4-4025-83a6-d9d027ae3de7"



(I have removed as you suggested rhgb from the beginning of the append line)
but the graphical boot is still on.
May be this is dued to the fact that I use kboot for starting my PS3
BTW: there isn't a file kboot.conf as in the past YDL5 distribution I used to modify, now the filesystem hasn't kboot.conf.

How can I do?

Thanks

Here's my Fedora stanza in menu.lst
Code:
title   Fedora 10 (2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686)
	root (hd0,5)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=b858b843-29a9-49e5-9979-b947caf9f039 vga=791
The vga=791 gives me all the boot initialization data scrolling up the screen during the boot process.

amost:

have you run ybin as root to change boot process according to yaboot.conf ?
In ppc you have to do this, not only editing the file

Hmmm. Maybe my comments don't pertain to this yaboot stuff. Nevermind!

Hello,

thanks, you are right! The fact is that I have enabled the text plugin for Plymouth issuing the commands:
[root@PS3 ~]# plymouth-set-default-plugin text
[root@PS3 ~]# /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd
but at boot now an horizontal scrollbar in text mode is displayed. I'd like to see boot messages in test mode.

Can you please help me?

Thanks...

solved: using plugin details

Hello,

I have used the plugin details and everything shows up ad boot:

[root@PS3 ~]# plymouth-set-default-plugin details
[root@PS3 ~]# /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd

The question is solved.

Thanks
AmosT

good find,...

Wasted too much time on such a simple thing. I wonder why no option to show details on the splash with Fedora 10? (maybe 7,8,9 too, I skipped a few)
