[Bug 840987] Re: Implicit "quiet" on empty GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT


Interestingly some time after the report I have noticed this behavior on
my laptop with fglrx too. But after upgrading both systems to the Linux
kernel 3.12 (Ubuntu 14.04 dev with linux-image-generic the
bug is gone. I'm seeing the complete output on booting and setting quiet
will suppress it as expected. So it seems this was more a kernel issue
than an issue with grub.

** Also affects: grub

** No longer affects: grub

** Package changed: grub2 (Ubuntu) => linux-meta (Ubuntu)

  Implicit "quiet" on empty GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT

Status in “linux-meta” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 dev with grub2 1.99-11ubuntu1, a GeForce 8600
  GT and nvidia-current 280.13-0ubuntu2. In /etc/default/grub
  to 1680x1050-24. After update-grub and a reboot my screen is the most
  time black. On a few seconds before X switches to my login manager I
  see some output. If I delete the line with GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX I see
  the complete output on a reboot (but the resolution is 640x480). I
  have tested this on VirtualBox too and there is all working fine. I
  must there explicit set "quite" in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT to get
  the broken behaviour of my real system.
