Ok. I've modified system-fsck so that it outputs some test message to 
the standard output (essentially by simply using printf("Bla bla bla")).

Still, I can't make this message appear on console during boot (It only 
appears in the journal).

Could someone please explain, what "StandardOutput=journal+console" is 
supposed to do? Actully, it is not documented, just briefly mentioned in 
documentation. Intuitively it would seem exactly what I want, and it is 
even the default setting. Looking at the source, it's not completely 
obvious to me though. Anyway, forwarding of standard output from 
system-fsck to console does not seem to work. Maybe I'm doing something 
very silly, or maybe there is some suse-specific breakage?

Thank you in advance,
