These are not relevant to RHGB. If anything

The subject says "quiet."

My test system's running Rawhide, and it was in the
final stages of updating to my overnight refresh of my rawhide
mirror as I read your email.

I added 'quiet rhgb' to the kernel parameters for
the latest 2.4.25

Did you actually mean 2.6.25 ?

Yeah. This box is bleeding edge, and bleeding badly.


2.4.25 was in the past. We are actually running a cut + pasted from Rawhide Report 20080329 ====================================================
kernel-2.6.25-0.172.rc7.git4.fc9
--------------------------------
* Fri Mar 28 2008 Dave Jones <davej redhat com>
- 2.6.25-rc7-git4



BTW on one machine I have no rhgb quiet and I can see

That's how I run everything. It's easy to ignore messages one doesn't want, but impossible to seem them when they're needed.

It's especially frustrating when the kernel panics and so has to be rebooted.

It's especially especially frustration when the box is a name brand and so lacks a reset button & so need to have its power cycled.


all the messages when I am starting the machine and on
the other I have it turned on and it does display the
startup messages that I can see and right after udev
and selinux messages, the rhgb kicks in and takes
over.

I thought rhgb was really great when I first saw it. Since then I've change my mind.



kernel (which I expect to fail), and I did get the
kernel messages, and the expected boot failure (though the actual messages were different from what I expected. Probably a new mkinitrd caused
that).


I then booted the last kernel that does work, a
2.4.25 kernel, with
2.6.24

"quiet rhgb" and there are absolutely no messages,
and the system seems to be locked up.

I didn't even get the penguins.
