I believe the logo is compiled into the kernel. You'd need to recompile the kernel to get rid of it, which may or may not be worth the trouble.

Is there a way to remove the logo *after* it finishes booting? It's kind of cute to have it there during, but needs to go away after since it chews up a lot of no-scrolling real-estate, esp. on a 7" screen.

The logo is overwritten the first time you switch consoles (Ctrl+Alt+Fn), scroll back (Shift+PgUp), or clear the screen (Ctrl+L at the bash prompt).

Also, if you set a console font with "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup", or in /etc/default/console-setup, the logo will disappear automatically during the boot sequence, as a side-effect of re-drawing the screen in the new font.

You can change that in /etc/inittab - find these lines

Code: Select all

#
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty --noclear 38400 tty1
2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6
Remove the --noclear from that #1 getty on pts/0.
