Ubuntu – Log boot messages on tty1 instead of tty7


I'd like to see my boot messages in a different VT than 7.
Can it be changed? Can I get the old behaviour – to get a login prompt AFTER all boot-up is complete in TTY1?

  • If you are comfortable changing your kernel boot params, you can add any number of console=ttyX. The last one specified gets 'boot' messages, for example:

    root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS0,57600n8 console=tty1

    Kernel and boot messages will go to tty1
