17 disabling all the *splash stuff fixed this and my XDM problem. Kernel
18 quiet mode works though OpenRC is still noisy, that's what I was
19 seeing before the splash screen came up. It didn't used to be that
20 way... For now I'll just live without splash and go back to good old
21 text and penguins for my bootup. :)
