Hi All,

Is there a way to disable the modem manager plugins from displaying at boot up?
I need them for my broadband connection. It keeps on displaying over my splash screen
briefly while booting.

I tried to create a script with the output to /dev/null 2>&1 and modified the ModemManager
dbus service to use this script but to no avail.


Thanks,
Tony

Modemmanager is started as a dbus service, so using a redirect won't work.

I use net-misc/networkmanager-0.9.4.0-r2 with the modemmanager useflag and I don't see those annoying messages.

That is the version with the modemmanager use flag. that I am using. If I don't use a splash screen the modem modules do display anyway.

You can edit the source files to remove this.


  • Download the tarball of modemmanager that you are using (or copy it from distfiles).
  • Extract the source somewhere, and go into the modemmanager directory.
  • ./configure (add '--with-polkit' if you are using the policykit use flag)
  • edit the mm-manager.c file in the src directory:

    • comment out line 158 (at least, with modemmanager-6.0.0):
      Code:
      mm_info ("Loaded plugin '%s'", mm_plugin_get_name (plugin));


Then do a make and make install (as root). Fixed.

It annoyed me too.
