Subject: [gentoo-user] Kernel boot messages are no longer displayed

Hi all,

Since kernel 3.12.13 (3.12.13-gentoo), the kernel boot messages have
disappeared, i.e. they are no longer displayed at boot time. All I get
is a line like "Loading kernel 3.12.13". (I just upgraded to
3.12.20-gentoo, so now it's something like "Loading kernel 3.12.20".)

I have no idea why. I checked my grub config and it does not add a
"quiet" argument. I see nothing in /etc/rc.conf about quiet (or
verbose). And X86_VERBOSE_BOOTUP is set to 'y'. I also looked for
"quiet", "boot", and "messages" (while running "make xconfig") and
nothing untoward showed up.

How do I get back to a normal and sane boot process?

Cheers,
Hilco
