Hello

Is there any way to stop openrc clearing the screen just before presenting the "login: " prompt?

I have messages that come from running /etc/init.d/local and they disappear too fast for me to read them...

Add --noclear to your agetty line(s) in /etc/inittab

I have this:
Code:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty --noclear -8 -s 38400 tty1 linux
