Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

Have you added "vga=0x??? quiet splash" at the end of kernel /vmlinuz26... line in GRUB configuration file ?

As I am here I would like to ask a question about LUKS and plymouth. How to make it work together ? wink
I have encrypted LVM (root), how to make plymouth ask for password ? Currently it hangs forever, after switching to another tty I see prompt for password but I cannot enter it.
I have Fedora11 box with plymouth and luks, it just ask for password with nice textbox. I wish have the same on Arch wink

I'm in the same situation. I tried to hack the luks hook, but it didn't work. I gave up in the end because of uni work, but now that its christmas I might have a look at it again.
Anyone have any ideas of how to implement this?

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

That didn't take as long as I though it would.

I have managed to get luks working now. Plymouth now has a password prompt.

Here is the patch for the encrypt hook (/lib/initcpio/hooks/encrypt).
It hasn't had much testing, but it seems to work ok.

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

I got it working too, with the smooth gdm transition smile

For this, I had to do the following.

* Activated early kms for 2.6.32.3
   - http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/17461

* Patch xorg-server :
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Get latest radeon git and patch it :
  - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

  - for nouveau :
    http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Patch gdm :
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Recompile plymouth with --enable-gdm-transition

* in /etc/inittab, comment the line :
   - c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 38400 tty1 linux

* activate autologin via /etc/gdm/custom.conf

For X to start on the active VT, plymouth write a file force-active-vt in /var/spool/gdm, so this directory must exist so that plymouth can write in it. However if u want to force active vt without this ( ie without --enable-gdm-transition in plymouth ), you might want to use this custom version of gdm-2.26.0-force-active-vt.patch :

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

I am facing an issue during shutdown. Dont know if its related to plymouth though.
I use kde and during shutdown, when kdm quits and before plymouth starts sometimes system just hangs, no error log or anything.
I have noticed this a couple of times now. Wondering if it has anything to do with plymouth.


Thanks

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

Hi everyone,
I have an issue while compiling

checking for DRM... configure: error: Package requirements (libdrm libdrm_intel libdrm_radeon libdrm_nouveau) were not met:

No package 'libdrm_radeon' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DRM_CFLAGS
and DRM_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

I know this is was few post earlier but i have compiled libdrm-git from AUR with "--enable-radeon-experimental-api"
and xf86-video-intel-git from AUR

//i recompiling for now maybe I do mistake
//yes I'am stupid i forget move || return 1 sry for useless post

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

I've got a problem with plymouth. Maybe this is because of testing repository (but initscripts, kms drivers and mesa, plymouth aren't from testing...), but I've got the same issue as @tuxs (http://www.4shared.com/file/169733190/8 … 00201.html), I've got "quiet splash" in kernel boot line, set spinfinity as default theme and rebuilt init image, but there is still default theme and messages written twice onto screen, even there are marks ([BUSY], [DONE], etc). I've tried to do something with initscripts but it isn't working, I've checked plymouth hook, but there are nothing to do with this. I haven't got any idea left... Maybe some of you have? Thanks for help.

BTW. KMS is working, I've got ATi HD4570 card, and Dell 1555 notebook if it matters.

Re: Plymouth is working! How to have a great splash in your box

Where should I put video to show you?

BTW. I've updated mkinitcpio to version without klibc maybe now it will work. We will see after reboot wink

EDIT: Nope, this didn't change anything.

I got it working too, with the smooth gdm transition smile

For this, I had to do the following.

* Activated early kms for 2.6.32.3
   - http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/17461

* Patch xorg-server :
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Get latest radeon git and patch it :
  - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

  - for nouveau :
    http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Patch gdm :
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup
   - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpm … iew=markup

* Recompile plymouth with --enable-gdm-transition

* in /etc/inittab, comment the line :
   - c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -8 38400 tty1 linux

* activate autologin via /etc/gdm/custom.conf

For X to start on the active VT, plymouth write a file force-active-vt in /var/spool/gdm, so this directory must exist so that plymouth can write in it. However if u want to force active vt without this ( ie without --enable-gdm-transition in plymouth ), you might want to use this custom version of gdm-2.26.0-force-active-vt.patch :

Do you have by any chance the packages stored somewhere in your pc? It would be great to have the modified PKGBUILDs...
Thanks

Looks like boot messages from the arch userspace init is showing through, dont know if plymouth should be hiding them.

Yeah, vga=0x369 to be correct. I've been trying other values to be sure too, all with the same effect.

I've changed the plymouth-git PKGBUILD to include a new "plymouth-encrypt" hook which should do what's needed. I'll be testing it shortly then bugging the AUR maintainer: (removed old link)

Edit: This is totally borked right now, don't use it unless you like to do a bunch of hacking. I've already addressed some issues, but not updated the package yet

Edit2: I think I have it tracked down, with the help of the ubuntu deb source... Will repackage it soon.

Run makepkg? It doesn't take that long to compile and the non-applying patch is easy as the file being patched is one line.

I already tried some days ago to install plymouth-git and then apply the patch to the encrypt hook. It didn't work, I couldn't type any password at the next reboot. Decryption via usbkey worked, so I could boot and rollback.

I'll wait until someone else manages to have it work on i686. Thanks.
