Custom boot params

Hey everyone.

Can anyone tell me how to add custom boot params to my Nitropad x230 qubes os instance? The default boot params include “rhgb”, which I would love to remove however I cant figure out how.

I tried loading into a recovery-shell, mounting the /boot/ with read&write perms and then modifying the kexec_default.1.txt which is where the default boot option is listed. However, even after signing that with kexec-sign it still throws an error saying “Boot entries changed, select new default” which will then override my modified default.

Purpose of removing rhgb would be to make Plymouth shut up and not show me its annoying GUI during boot (u know… that boring loading screen while qubes loads). I know I could just press f2 or esc but that’s annoying.

Ideas please :pleading_face:

the recommend way would be that you change them in dom0:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
and after that update them with
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

after that you can reboot. Heads will complain about a changed grub.cfg but if you signed it again it should work

I feel stupid as f*** right now. Wanna know why?

Becuse I thought that grub config was supposed to be accessible from the recovery shell. Thats why I couldn’t find it. facepalm
