[Mageia-dev] RFC: Splash + Quiet.

We've used the kernel command line "splash=silent" in the past (as
opposed to "splash=verbose") to indicate that we want a splash screen.
Most of the upstream projects just check for "splash" on it's own. The
absence of the word "splash" means the same as our current "splash=verbose".
In order to make this work properly we have to patch both upstream
systemd, initscripts, dracut and plymouth.
As far as I can tell, there is no gain in doing this so I'm intending to
convert our usage to the upstream defaults. If anyone objects, please
speak out now!!
As a separate issue, kernel debug output is controlled by the "quiet"
keyword. We don't use this (haven't since 2003) but personally I believe
it's time to include this. It gives a much smoother and more user
So again, unless anyone objects, I'll update the tools to set these two
keywords together when we boot. (I thought that there used to be a GUI
tool to choose the theme here and whether it was verbose or silent... I
can't seem to see it - what am I missing?)
