systemd-bsod.service, systemd-bsod - Displays boot-time emergency log message in full screen.


systemd-bsod [OPTIONS...]

systemd-bsod.service is used to display a blue screen which contains a message relating to a boot failure, including a QR code which can be scanned to get helpful information about the failure.

The following options are understood by systemd-bsod:

-h, --help

Print a short help text and exit.


Print a short version string and exit.

-c, --continuous

When specified, systemd-bsod waits continuously for changes in the journal if it doesn't find any emergency messages on the initial attempt.

Added in version 255.

On success (displaying the journal message successfully), 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
