Fedora 14 - No Shutdown Messages

When I shut down fedora 14, no messages are displayed. I commented out "rhgb quiet" to display the startup messages. How do I configure Fedora 14 to display the shutdown messages when shutting down?

Hit the Esc key and they should be displayed as the system shuts down.

Isn't there a way to permanently configure this?

Try changing your plymouth theme to "details" I think it's called.

1) Open a terminal window.
2) su - to swap to root
3) Enter - plymouth-set-default-theme
you should see?

[root@Fedora13 ~]# plymouth-set-default-theme
charge
[root@Fedora13 ~]

4) Enter plymouth-set-default-theme details
5) Enter plymouth-set-default-theme
you should see?

[root@Fedora13 ~]# plymouth-set-default-theme
details
[root@Fedora13 ~]

6) You will need to reboot.

Note I did this on my system and yes you see the messages but only when the kernel kills the GUI or Xorg session. The messages appeared for maybe 5 seconds before the machine powered off. So not sure how useful that is gonna be.

I also experimented using Shift + Ctrl and (F6 or F7 key) as these seem to be the terminals allocated on shutdown. Again saw the messages but for a very short time.
