testing video on Arch Linux (with systemd v212) (143.34 KB, text/plain)

Description N. I. 2014-06-03 10:48:26 UTC

testing video on Arch Linux (with systemd v212)

The 'quiet' kernel parameter has no effect during the latter part of shutdown process.

Additional Information:
This may be a duplicate of this older bug: [0].
However the above one has been solved since systemd 206([1],[2]). And after systemd 209, it seems that this bug appears again.
Today I tested this on Arch Linux(in virtualbox) with systemd 212.(gzipped webm video as attachment)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Ensure 'quiet' has been added to kernel parameter line, boot into OS without any "[ ERROR ]" during the startup process.
2.login, then use 'halt' to shutdown.

Actual Results:
Several lines output without error message printed on screen by systemd-shutdown.

Expected Results:
There are no output from systemd-shutdown(except the error output) when the 'quiet' appears on /proc/cmdline.

I can confirm that bug with systemd v. 213-6. Quiet has been added to kernel parameter line, but still many output messages appears. It have to be black screen.

I sent a patch a week ago to fix this, it will be merged in master soon I think.
Comment 3 Ronny Chevalier 2014-06-11 08:13:03 UTC
It is fixed in git.

This was indeed fixed by Ronny with


But it is still broken in 216. I guess Lennart broke it again with:
