OpenSuse 12 Text Mode clears screen before login
I've recently installed OpenSuse 12.1 on a new laptop, since I only need it for some low-level command-line stuff, I have installed it in text mode.
Now, I'm calling a script in boot.local that does a number of checks and outputs the results to stdout. One problem, however, just before I'm allowed to login, OpenSuse seems to decide that the entire screen should be cleared first, so I have maybe a hundredth of a second to actually see the results. Any idea how to prevent the clearing of my screen?
