always boot in verbose

Anybody know how to set up OS X to always boot in verbose, w/o having to hit "v" at startup?
Someone suggested sudo nvram boot-args="-v" but I'm getting an error as I do that. Any other ways?

It depends on your machine! For my 'old world' 7500, I have to append the -v to my 'boot-device' variable. Hence my system would read:

#nvram boot-device
0 bootr
#nvram boot-device=0 bootr -v

NOTE: This is only good for the 7500, and please check the syntax before trying this!

I figured out a new way to do it.

Boot into OS 9, and open up the system disk app. Option-double-click on the OS X partition, and add the -v there.
