Need help with "quiet" boot on ascii-686 pae

I have found nothing so far that will make ascii-686 pae boot "quiet". The "quiet" and "splash" switches are ignored, it appears.

Has anyone else had success solving this? I can't find an answer using search.

This happens regardless of how I install it. Desktop, laptop, or VM. hmm

Thanks in advance

Does the kernel accept parameter "rhgb"? That is used at least for me on the RHEL and similar distros. That's the Red Hat graphical boot.

No, it is ignored.  Thanks though.

I don't think Devuan includes plymouth, but at one point I compiled it for Devuan: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show … 5/plymouth has a link in the upper right for "Download" which takes you to a nice little page that shows how to update your sources.list and get the package. Maybe that will work for you. I don't know that much about plymouth, and it recently has malfunctioned for me but I hope it was just a local implementation problem.

plymouth is a banned package in Devuan:
