After looking at menu.lst, I see that for grub this could be fixed by only setting the quiet option in "# defoptions=" and not in "# altoptions=". This would mean special casing it in grub-installer and maybe ignoring it in lilo-installer. > IMHO we shouldn't do this until we have a graphical boot screen > integrated with the desktop task, at that point we could do it for > *only* the desktop task. I do not really see why. I personally find the quiet boot very comfortable even without a graphical boot screen. It makes real errors stand out a lot more. For the installed system, "quiet" is a lot less "quiet" than it is for the D-I boot.
