Hello everyone! I'm trying to setup the plymouth on my UEFI laptop and it's not working. I have installed sys-boot/plymouth package and OpenRC-plugin. I have also chosen a theme and disabled rc_interactive. Also disabled a Boot Logo. Well I guess I've done everything according to Gentoo Wiki. But the Plymouth doesn't work, I still see text-mode but without the logo. What should I do more? I don't have any bootloader. my system loads from /boot/EFI/Gentoo/linux,efi file

Thanks in advance

How did you create the initramfs?

I thought so actually because I don't need the initramfs and I thought it is an optional way. So I guess I will have to setup it? Does it work without grub, lilo etc?

Reading https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Plymouth/ might give you an idea. Unfortunately the Gentoo wiki article is not very clear about the requirements.

Well ok, I've installed the initramfs by dracut.

Config file /etc/dracut.conf.d/initramfs.conf
Code:

hostonly="yes"
dracutmodules+="plymouth"


the img-file was generated successfully, 12M size.

I've also added it to EFI according to this article https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/EFI_stub_kernel so seems like everything is ok, but still no Plymouth during the boot.

And is it used at all? Or are you booting without your new initramfs?
