The manpage for systemd explains a good bit of this. The default of passing 'quiet' to the kernel is also apparently picked up by systemd, which then suppresses the daemon startup messages. If 'quiet' is removed, systemd gives colorized daemon startup messages, but this also makes the kernel noisy. The 'systemd.sysv_console=true' turns on on startup messages when the 'quiet' option is used, however the startup messages don't seem to be the same as when 'quiet' is turned off, even when also passing 'systemd.log_color=true'. I'll investigate this further when I don't have something more pressing to do. -- Chris -- Chris Knadle Chris.Knadle@coredump.us GPG Key: 4096R/0x1E759A726A9FDD74
