On Kali Linux 2, before you are greeted with the GUI login screen, there is some pre-GUI text that scrolls on the screen. It shows you what modules and programs are working correctly, which ones failed, etc.

Well, OpenVas always failed, so I did some commands to make it not fail, and now there is no text at all. That may or may not be the reason that the text is gone. I just know that it was there before, and is gone now.

So if you have any suggestions on how to get it back, please share.


  • get the "some commands to make it not fail" back? Without knowledge what are your "some commands" it is really hard to say. – Jakuje Jan 21 '16 at 22:29
  • I used this [forums.kali.org/… thread as reference, and followed the first answer's commands. – FrigidDev Jan 21 '16 at 22:44

You have to edit the /etc/default/grub file: remove quiet from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. After that, run update-grub.
