ubuntu show boot process


Recommended Posts

I'm not a big fan of not seeing what's going on during boot up no matter what the operating system is.  Usually most operating systems will display a pretty (or ugly) splash screen to hide the craziness of loading up what's needed to get the operating system up and running.


Here is how to change Ubuntu to show everything going on during boot up Temporary (this will only happen this one time so you can see if you like it)

When you get to the Grub boot menu (hold left shift on boot), edit the top option by pressing e and search the boot command until you see the two words "quiet splash". Delete these from that line and press Control+X to boot.


This will show you what's happening behind the scenes (and what it's getting stuck on).


So you like it and want to make the change permanent

If you want to make it permanent, edit /etc/default/grub as root, delete "quiet splash" from the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable, save and then run sudo update-grub
