How to fix the “ugly” lines when you shutdown

Somewhere in March we got an update in that makes our shutdown look different.
We see now a lot of strange lines.

Nick Petrov went to look for a solution and found a way to hide these messages.

Follow his procedure:

Edit the file /etc/mkinitcipo.conf with sublime-text and add “shutdown” to the hooks. Then save it.

Then run the following code in the terminal

sudo mkinitcpio -p linux

When you have rebooted, you will see less lines when you shutdown.

There is no need to do this. It is just for cosmetic reasons.
