enabling initrd and kernel boot messages grub2

view story

http://askubuntu.com – In the changelog for grub2 on ubuntu, I noticed that several versions ago it was decided by the maintainers to: Suppress kernel/initrd progress messages, except in recovery mode This is counter productive for server installs as it can render a system unbootable and without a method to learn about the possible problem. My question is simple - how does one revert to showing all initrd and kernel boot messages including the processing of init.d scripts before the login prompt? (ie. enable printing of all initrd/kernel progress messages) I've tried the various "solutions" discussed in answer to (HowTos)
