Supress startup message

Post by a-lab » Sat Nov 06, 2010 7:40 am

Is it possible to suppress wtware startup message?

It is annoying to show these messages where lots of terminals are deployed for non-admin people.
- Trying to load /pxelinux.0/...
- Press DEL to Enter Setup ...

I know four sources of messages that appear before graphic screen.

1. System BIOS and PXE BIOS. No way to remove.

2. pxelinux.0 taken from syslinux.zytor.com. "Trying to load /pxelinux.0/default" etc. We already cleaned up these messages in 4.9.x wtware. Today we uploaded 4.6.9 with the same pxelinux.0 (now called wtware.pxe). Please, try wtware 4.6.9 from http://wtware.com/download.html

3. Linux kernel. It should not print any text to screen. Sometimes it writes some error text, and we remove it if someone sends us screen photo.

4. WTware itself. We removed all messages except progress indicator and "Press DEL to enter Setup". Do not show it?

Thank you for detailed explanation.
1. No problem.
2. Nice work. Thanks.
3. No problem.
4. Yes, I want to hide "Press DEL to enter Setup" message and suppress DEL function. I prefer they can be defined in config file.
