Since SUSE Linux 7.2, the graphical SUSE screen is displayed on the first console if the option “vga=<value>” is used as a kernel parameter. If you install using YaST, this option is automatically activated in accordance with the selected resolution and the graphics card. There are three ways to disable the SUSE screen, if desired:
Enter the command echo 0 >/proc/splash on the command line to disable the graphical screen. To activate it again, enter echo 1 >/proc/splash.
Add the kernel parameter
splash=0 to your boot loader
configuration. Chapter 9, The Boot Loader provides more information about
this. However, if you prefer the text mode, which was the default in
earlier versions, set
Compile a new kernel and disable the optionin .
Disabling framebuffer support in the kernel automatically disables the splash screen as well. SUSE cannot provide any support for your system if you run it with a custom kernel.
