hide terminal and boot sequence but not turn screen off
« on: July 06, 2017, 11:01:03 AM »
Hi there forum,

I'm wondering if it's possible to hide the TC boot sequence and terminal / prompt etc.

I'm running a program for digital signage that once it starts it overlays the terminal anyway, but ideally before starting I would also like the boot sequence hidden.

I tried moving terminal / console to say tty2 etc but still boot and thereafter terminal activity shows up.

Any suggestions welcome :)

THANK YOU!

console=/dev/null
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

WOW, as simple as that - I'll try now and see if this still allows the "screen" to display once we start the application :)

THANK YOU!
