Hello:

I use Plymouth-breeze but this only last two seconds, the boot lasts 15 seconds

What should I do to Plymouth last all boot? It is my grub.

Thank you very much


Code:
#     'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Gentoo"
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT='splash quiet'
GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/breeze/theme.txt
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true
GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY=true
GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y
#GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768x24
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="dolvm rootfstype=ext4 init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd quiet loglevel=0 show_status=0 udev.log-priority=3"

You probably need to include Plymouth and the theme you want in an initramfs if you want to have the splash earlier and longer. If the Plymouth theme is only available after the real root partition is mounted it reduce the time it is display.

I prefer to use Fbcondecor in the kernel image and splashutils in an initramfs. It give me an early background image on the console and I can see the boot messages too. All virtual terminal background images can be set too.

Hi Logicien!

It is my lines in genkernel.conf. It is right?

Code:
# Installs, or not, plymouth into the initramfs. If "splash" will be
# passed at boot, plymouth will be activated.
PLYMOUTH="yes"

# Embeds the given plymouth theme into the initramfs.
#PLYMOUTH_THEME="solar"
PLYMOUTH_THEME="breeze"


and genkernel:

Code:
dev/sda1 ya está montado en /boot
pcr pcr # genkernel --install initramfs
[...]
* Running with options: --install initramfs
* Using genkernel.conf from /etc/genkernel.conf
*         >> Appending plymouth cpio data...
*   >> Installing plymouth [ using the breeze theme and plugin: "script" ]...
[...]


I leave using fbcondecor for problems with other packages.

Thanks for your answers!!

Change the kernel parameter root= to be wrong in the grub menu manually. If your initramfs has the plymouth in, then you can see the splash screen.

Hi:
I made changes but nothing:

Code:
#     'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Gentoo"
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT='splash quiet'
GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/breeze/theme.txt
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
#GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="dolvm rootfstype=ext4 init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd quiet udev.log-priority=3"
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true
GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY=true
GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y
#GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768x24
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
#GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="dolvm rootfstype=ext4 init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd quiet loglevel=0 show_status=0$
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="dolvm root=/dev/sda6 rootfstype=ext4 init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd quiet"


In kernel:
Code:
CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL=y
CONFIG_CMDLINE="root=/dev/sda6"


Some other idea?

Thank!!

More information allow more ideas. According with the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX variable, you use Systemd as boot scripts system. When you pass to the Linux kernel the parameter quiet, not only Linux become quiet at boot time but Systemd too. Systemd do not show any boot messages. This may explain why the Plymouth splash screen appear so few long.

Instead of using quiet to reduce Linux log output, you can use loglevel=0. This wiil keep Linux quiet and Systemd verbose. Than you may see Plymouth longer. You can just remove the quiet parameter if you want. Do not forget to do grub-mkconfig.

I have no idea what is the issue.
I'm playing with different versions and find that 0.8.8 work fine.
