Comment 170 for bug 554172

Don Myers, enter each of the shown lines completely, one after the other, into a terminal window and press Enter after each line.

First enter:

sudo su -

You will get asked for your password, after entering it correctly you will get a root prompt, which means that all subsequent commands in this terminal will get executed as root.

Then enter the next line completely (copy and paste it into the terminal):

for file in /etc/init/*.conf; do sed -i 's/^console output/\#console output/' $file; done

This line executes the sed command in a loop, applying it to each .conf file in the /etc/init/ directory.

After that, enter


to get out of the root console back into normal mode.
