Like to see bootup messages
 
I just installed kubuntu 7.10 on an older laptop with 512 meg of RAM
and it boots *very* slowly. I find the black screen during bootup to
be disquieting. I'd like to see bootup messages like I would see on
redhat or slackware. I commented out the quiet directive in menu.lst
but it doesn't make any differences.

Any other ideas?
Thanks
Tim

You are on the right track. On the line that states the kernel to use
there is an option "quiet". Remove it or change it to "noquiet".

Even with quiet you should get some messages, not a black screen. Did
you remove "splash" from the kernel line?

Hi Karl and Sinclair :
No Carl, I did not, I did change `quiet' to `noquiet'. Below is the
automagic kernels list for my menu.lst
############################################
title Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic
root=UUID=ef315234-5f10-478f-978f-c407ae845b5b ro noquiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
# quiet

Thanks to all for the responses.

Get rid of the splash at the end of this line. It is supposed to
display a graphical boot screen with a progress bar, which isn't working
on your system. Without the splash you will see the boot messages. The
quiet just reduces the number of messages you see.

Karl, you nailed it.
Thanks a lot.
