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. https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/sys-boot/plymouth?id=dc5f5087a32dcdf2c05960849a7aaba46aa35674), 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

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? -> https://github.com/Sabayon/genkernel-next/issues/51 Otherwise I would need to switch to dracut for having both, btrfs and plymouth in the initramfs. --Massimo B.
