How to enable boot logs on PBP
Hello everyone,
I'd like to see the kernel boot messages instead of the splash screen when booting up my pinebook pro. I'm running on the default debian image.
In the wiki there is a section about it ( mentioning a u-boot config file at `/etc/default/u-boot/` and an update command (`u-boot-update`).
The problem is my filesystem has neither of those. The next best thing I could find is a config file at `/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf`, suggesting the use of syslinux instead of u-boot.

Can someone clarify this for me? Is the wiki outdated or something is wrong with my installation?
>a config file at `/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf`, suggesting the use of syslinux instead of u-boot.
Deceptive, nothing at all to do with syslinux
Just another, different interface to u-boot,, instead of boot.txt/boot.scr OR boot.cmd/boot.scr/uEnv.txt
So no use looking for the unicorn, a menu.c32 in ARM64, even if you found, wouldn't work
You could try,, copy extlinux to *.orig, edit removing bootsplash
Let us know
The simplest way to see the boot-time messages is change the file /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf from "console=ttyS2,1500000n8" to "console=tty1". It doesn't log the messages, but at least you can see them.
