Description Max Chung 2010-06-01 06:05:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Current startup and shutdown screen not informative at all as to what is happening.

Actual results:
Pretty but useless startup and shutdown screen appears on startup and shutdown.

Expected results:
There should be a RHEL 5.5-like startup and shutdown screen with all the [OK], [WARNING], and [FAILED] messages and an option to hide it.

This is an intentional change. Booting without 'rhgb quiet' should show details, as does hitting 'Escape' during boot.
