[Solved] dracut 050-1 throws random error about plymouth

Regenerating dracut after a custom kernel build for 5.6.5 throws this weird error:

 Failed to add dependency on unit, unit systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service does not exist.

Which makes total sense because I don't have plymouth installed. Why is dracut looking for a non-existent, and completely unneccessary, systemd service?

#edit: seems it is pulled by the sytemd module, which seems completely asinine:

dracut: *** Including module: systemd ***                                                                                                                      
Failed to add dependency on unit, unit systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service does not exist.

The generated initrd does work, but throws an additional error on boot about systemd-cryptsetup@.service failing (which is weird, as the correct luks volume is unlocked).

From the same boot:

Thanks for this upstream report jasonwryan; looks like this fix got into the 51-1 release and we no longer get those nag messages now upon initrd rebuild.

I did have to suppress the annoying error about squashfs failing, but the other fixes are very welcome. smile
