I use Beagleboard with installed bare Debian from RCN. My main application is in Qt and it works as expected but the virtual terminal is very disturbing. When the system boots I can see a number of annoying messages on a display and that is why I want to remove virtual terminal forever. I tried Ubuntu nano and Debian and everywhere virtual terminals exist. Please advise something
First start by adding "quiet" to your bootargs, along with removing
the console=ttyXYZ reference, should quiet down your terminal.
I don’t want to remove the console (I think removing “console=ttyXY” from bootargs will break the console at all), just the virtual terminals
have just tried to add “quiet” and got rid off the system boot log and the fancy virtual terminal on the display still appears. I need to remove all text from the display, just GUI is needed on it
You it should be safe to remove console=tty0 then you won't get any
boot text on your lcd/dvi screen
here is the cmdline:
console=ttyO2,115200n8 quiet root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 ro rootfstype=ext4 rootwait fixrtc dvimode=hd720
what should I remove?
