I am designing a media centre. I need to restart xbmc to implement a particular functionality. I have disabled the logs. When I stop xbmc using initctl stop xbmc it displays a colored screen. Sometimes a red/blue/green color appears for 1-2 seconds. Is there a way to remove the color?

Eg: xbmc main process terminated by signal... – Curious chap Jan 29 '13 at 7:43
