Stop bootup verbose

Linux newbie somehow turned on the verbose bootup text.  How do I stop the verbose from appearing; thus, returning the vendor's GUI to appear?  I am using LILO to bootup several distros (Xandros, Suse and Fedora).

I'm sure it has something to do with an append but I'm not sure.

I suspect that you probably want the 'quiet' option in your lilo.conf?

...or remove 'debug' if for some strange reason that directive has been included, as this will reduce the amount of output significantly.....'quiet' reduces the output even more.

Hi,

Can you show me your /etc/lilo.conf file also if your lilo has been password protected
** please make sure you don't paste the password **

pjedmond,

You put me on the right track.  Plus, I added vga=791.

That took care of Xandros and Suse both showing their GUI's.  However, Fedora ignored all darts thrown at it: vga, splash=silent, quiet.

The fix to get Fedora to boot up with its GUI in Lilo is to add 'rhgb' to the append and is an acronym for Red Hat Graphical Boot.  This is courtesy of the grub file that Fedora produced.

Now all systems are booting up with their respective GUI's.
