Remove text boot messages - debian 7 net install
I used the net install, installed xorg, openbox, splashimages, slim... I configured all these to give me the look I want... my issue now... during boot, after I select the 1 option on grub (looking good now, but still wish it was hidden) I see all these init messages before the slim screen loads...
Question: Is there a way to pipe these to another virtual terminal, or remove them from being shown during boot, so that I only see GUI?
I see that Linux Mint does this with their logo, they hide all the messages... I was wondering how that was done?
I understand that the messages shown are in some cases important, and that there is some risk in hiding them. At this point, I want to know the steps involved to get them hidden, I can worry about the caveats afterwords.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thank you for your time.
