RHEL 6: View boot messages "behind" the splash screen

Solution 1:

Alt + d works also. I remember it as "details".

Solution 2:

  • Interrupt the GRUB by hitting the Esc key
  • Press e to edit
  • Remove the rhgb quiet at the kernel line
  • Enter and hit b to continue booting

Solution 3:

If I understand what you are asking, you should just be able to hit ESC to show the startup messages. To make it go away permanently, remove "rhgb" from the kernel line in /etc/grub.conf.

Solution 4:

Just found out: Control+End seems to work on virtual machines.

Solution 5:

You may want to edit the kernel line in your grub setup when you boot. Just remove the rhgb

The changes are not permanent.
