Hello all. Since I upgraded from 5.0.12 to 5.1.2 I've noticed that the boot logos (the penguins that match the amount of threads you have) are no longer displaying even if that option is still enabled in make.conf. I talked to someone else with a different setup who confirmed they had the same issue. Is anyone else experiencing this?


Thanks in advance.

GTX770, The only things I changed which may somehow be related are:
Code:
   
Processor type and features  --->
       [*] CPU microcode loading support
       [*]   Intel microcode loading support
       [*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support

Graphics support --->
       [*] VGA Arbitration
       <*> Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)  --->
       < > Nouveau (NVIDIA) cards
       < > Intel 8xx/9xx/G3x/G4x/HD Graphics
          Frame buffer Devices --->
            <*> Support for frame buffer devices --->
            < >   nVidia Framebuffer Support
            < >   nVidia Riva support
            < > Userspace VESA VGA graphics support                                     
            [*] VESA VGA graphics support
            [*] Simple framebuffer support

So update on this.

The reason is a commit to no longer show the boot logo if your loglevel is equivalent the the level set by the quiet boot option:

https://www.fclose.com/linux-kernels/809614/fbcon-silence-fbcon-logo-on-quiet-boots-linux-5-1/

Thus, the workaround is to:

1) Not use the QUIET kernel option.
2) Check your CONFIG_CONSOLE_LOGLEVEL_QUIET .config option to see what value it uses (by default 4).
3)
a. Manually set your LOGLEVEL to one value above that CONFIG_CONSOLE_LOGLEVEL_QUIET value.
b. Set CONFIG_CONSOLE_LOGLEVEL_QUIET to at least one below the desired LOGLEVEL value and manually set LOGLEVEL to the desired value.
