Subject: [gentoo-releng] turning off initial livecd splash screen on x86
Date: Tue, 10 Feb 2004 01:21:53

There's a request from method to turn off the initial graphical isolinux
boot screen on the LiveCD. The reason is that this graphical boot screen
can mess up remote consoles, and there's no way to turn it off as it
pops up right away. Without it on, the machine should be installable
over a remote console by doing:

isolinux: gentoo nofb (or is it nosplash?)

Right now, the remote console will die before it even gets here.
