I’m one of those who decided to try out systemd-boot after the grub situation. I would like to turn off the systemd output during startup. Arch wiki suggests adding the
quiet kernel parameter to the options line in
/efi/loader/entries/*.conf files. The problem is that these loader entries get overwritten every time there is a kernel update. Loader entries seem to be generated by the
kernel-install-mkinitcpio package. Looking at its source code here, it seems that boot options for the loader entries are taken from a file called
if [[ -f /etc/kernel/cmdline ]]; then read -r -d '' -a BOOT_OPTIONS < /etc/kernel/cmdline
Is adding the
quiet parameter to this file the correct way to make silent boot persist after kernel updates? Or is there some other way to achieve this?
