How to disable graphical boot (Plymouth)?


How can I turn off the graphical boot? I’d like to see a text-mode GRUB menu and LUKS2 authentication and watch the afterward boot process in text mode (as it happens with Fedora IoT).

I’m using Kinoite (Silverblue).


With workstation that can be disabled by editing /etc/default/grub and removing rhgb quiet from the ‘GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX’ line then running grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Usually on Fedora Workstation you can just pres Esc button after GRUB to switch in between ‘graphical’ and ‘text-mode’. Also if you want to log in ‘text-mode’ you can use Ctrl + Alt + F2 and to switch back to ‘graphical’ Ctrl + Alt + F1.

Right, ESC will switch to text mode, but I was looking for the solution @computersavvy shared.

You can also modify kernel arguments in silverblue with rpm-ostree kargs --editor
