AFAIK has that be done in the kernel-wedge package.
I hope that the message prevents users seeing a black screen for
some undefined time.
My proposal for the message is:
Running kernel init scripts for the installation program...
That has two improvement:
- it says what is really going on
- it doesn't need rebranding
Who dislikes the idea of
changing "many strange text lines" into a "black screen"
