Silent boot in kiosk mode

We need to use VIM3 in a kiosk mode.

I use OS Linux Khadas 4.9.206 #13 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 31 CST 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux

We need silent autostart with our application start without window manager.

How to remove ALL loading messages?
Thank you in advance.

@_dEV123 Do you mean to start your program automatically ?

Frank, thank you for your reply.

Yes, we are using Vim3 for specific equipment control purpose. And of course it runs control application. But autostarting application on Linux is not the hardest task. What I don’t understand - how make whole OS run in kiosk mode - so 1) absolutely silent boot 2) replace Khadas logo with other picture 3) no windows manager, just autostart our GUI application (java based)

I tried to search on forums but was unable to even silence loading messages.

So maybe you need a custom image? Check here: https://docs.khadas.com/vim3/FenixScript.html

Set log level here: https://github.com/khadas/fenix/blob/master/config/bootenv/amlogic_default_env.txt#L65

Replace this bmp file: https://github.com/khadas/fenix/tree/master/archives/logo/bmp

You can disable lightdm service or use the server image.
