Yesterday I was making random reading on the handbook and look at booting process. An idea struck me - it is possible to make silent boot - no boot loader, no dmesg, cut beastie menu so no options be available on boot, - nothing, just black screen, and login prompt. Dig a little and ..
echo this in /boot/loader.conf
BTX loader version is echoed on boot - after system is up and running half of btx message is replaced with login prompt.
How to remove BTX loader message ?
Verbose mode can also be turned on for SSH2 with the (surprise!) VerboseMode keyword.
