Older versions

Talk status
This discussion is done as of May 3, 2017.

The OpenRC section mentions a warning about versions <=0.9.0:

  • plymouth-0.9.0 and later versions do not work with openrc because of lack of login-seats. See bug #517572 for details. Simply mask all non-working versions:

The problem is that the only remaining version in portage as of Feb 2017 is 0.9.2 (cf., so the warning should probably be amended. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kilian (talkcontribs) 17:27, May 2, 2017‎

Hi Kilian , please remember to sign your contributions to discussion pages. Please amend the warning. Thanks! --Maffblaster (talk) 17:19, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

initramfs generators

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2022-02-15.

As mentioned genkernel does not support plymouth, so I switched to genkernel-next. There is no BTRFS="yes" option anymore in the config comments. Is this clone still maintained and more advanced than genkernel? -> Otherwise I would need to switch to dracut for having both, btrfs and plymouth in the initramfs. --Massimo B. (talk) 04:47, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

At this point this discussion is out of date. genkernel-next is unmaintained and it's benefits were (mostly) merged into genkernel proper. genkernel now does support BTRFS, but does not support Plymouth. Your best bet is likely to use dracut. --Maffblaster (talk) 22:15, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

Package sys-boot/plymouth-openrc-plugin is masked

The package sys-boot/plymouth-openrc-plugin is masked at the moment and marked for removal. Is it still needed for Plymouth to work on OpenRC? --Wra (talk) 14:25, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Are you asking for support on a wiki talk page? This is not the right place for support questions. You'd better ask in the forums.--Charles17 (talk) 15:04, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
Nope, I was asking here about the wiki Page that states that you need to install a package that was masked for removal. Anyway - it is irrelevant now, because it is not masked anymore (unmasged 6 Jun 2020).--Wra (talk) 05:37, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

genkernel-next removal

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2022-03-29.

As noted in the guide the genkernel-next has been removed. I found the reasoning in the FAQ of the genkernel wiki. I suggest that we remove the genkernel-next section, and update the guide to use Dracut. Citizenkepler (talk) 01:31, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

I agree, there's also a pull request going on in Genkerel's github that provides the same plymouth feature from genkernel-next, let's hope it gets committed to the main branch. --Niyumard (talk) 05:58, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
As this has been fixed (thanks :)), closing discussion to keep count down (Help:Talk_pages#Closing_discussions). -- Ris (talk) 21:58, 29 March 2022 (UTC)
