Default syetemd + crypttab - question

I just converted a laptop with encrypted /home and /swap to systemd -
initscripts has been removed. Luks via standard (new) /etc/crypttab


Things went swimmingly well (thank you to those who contributed to the
wiki).


One thing is a bit less than ideal - at boot - the prompt for luks
password appears - but the screen gets ovrewritten with other 'stuff' -
I can type the password fine its just not directly after the prompt
where the *** get written - assume its the parallel boot and other
things want to say 'ok'.


Is there a 'nice' way to handle this?

Thanks

That's a very good question, and I only solved that by passing the
quiet boot argument on the GRUB kernel line. I'm sure better solutions
will come up, since it's kinda cool to see all the daemons initializing.

I'd recommend playing around a bit with the "loglevel" kernel parameter. You might find a level where this output is omitted.
I personally just went to booting "quiet" after I finished testing systemd for my systems.

mfg narve
after my initial testing of systemd was finished.
