Question after install nvidia kmod package no more splash screen while bootup

Hello togther!

iam an old linux user (debian,suse and ubuntu) and i installed now fedora on my box to learn something new about other distros.

fedora 12 is realy nice, but i got some questions about some things.

I installed the nvidia kmod on this way:
Code:
su - 
mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

i inserted this in my grub.conf in etc on the kernel line at the end->   rdblacklist=nouveau
after install nvidia kmod package no more splash screen while bootup

Code:
this is what happens if i reboot my pc:
i see grub 
then i start or select fedora12
booting i see for a moment some text 
then i see only a blackscreen and the bottom of the screen a blue horizontal line with the loading status for the fedora x server gnome.
if the line is full, gnome apears.
I would like to have no splash screen and to see the console debug output

can somebody tell me how i can do that in fedora?


thx here in advice for all answers,
lightmans

You have two ways to do this.

1) Remove the rhgb quiet parts from the kenel boot line in /boot/grub/grub.conf

2)
Code:
# plymouth-set-default-theme details --rebuild-initrd
With either method, you would probably want to get a larger screen resolution during the text boot up than the default. You can do that by adding to the kernel boot line:

vga=0x318 (for 1024x768) or vga=0x31B (for 1280x1024) resolution. That will affect your screen resolution during the boot process, but not after X is started.

My suggestion was to use method 1) or method 2), but not both, but there is no reason you couldn't do both. If you used method 2), there is no need to remove the "rhgb quiet" items from the kernel boot line.

plymouth-set-default-theme <theme_name> --rebuild-initrd

does just what the command name states... it sets the Plymouth (GDM boot) theme, then rebuilds the initramfs-<version>.img file to make that permanent (until you change it later yourself).

You can use: plymouth-set-default-theme --list

to see the themes available. 'charge' is the normal graphical mode default. 'text' is the default "fallback" if graphical mode fails for some reason. 'details' shows the boot messages in text mode.
