I got to eliminate almost every sign of a console from bootup to lightdm (only the quick appearance of a cursor from grub still annoys me) but shutdown is a mess: at least an "fsck clean" message appears, but sometimes more, right before plymouth kicks in.
I'd like it if:
- I could make the messages not appear, either by suppressing them (more difficult, since the fsck message is there from before lightdm... I can make it go away THEN but not on shutdown) or by making the font black on the console, which I don't know how to do on shutdown; or
- Plymouth kicked in earlier.
I tried this solution: How to hide console messages on shutdown? - but this is very old and we don't have an rc.conf anymore.
In this case: Console text appears on shutdown - there is a problem with nvidia but I have an integrated Intel, so it has nothing to do with that. Also people do not seem to care about the text - I KNOW it doesn't mean trouble, I just want to get rid of it.
In this case: Console shows on shutdown/logout - Comments to the answer just reassure it's normal behaviour.
Thanks in advance!
