Hello all,

I'm trying to get PLymouth to work with no luck. I'm following the tutorial here but everytime I reboot I have no PLymouth :(. The only thing I didn't do is the KMS for Intel cards because I cannot find :


<*>   Intel 8xx/9xx/G3x/G4x/HD Graphics
         [*]     Enable modesetting on intel by default

But I have
Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)  --->

If I'm trying plymouth in a terminal using


# plymouthd
#plymouth --show-splash

It works....

My genkernel.conf as the lines


# Enable splashutils in early space (initrd). Default is "no".

# Use this splash theme. If commented out - the "default" name theme is used.
# Also, SPLASH="yes" needs to be enabled for this one to one work.
# This supersedes the "SPLASH_THEME" option of /etc/conf.d/splash (in early space).

# Installs, or not, plymouth into the initramfs. If "splash" will be
# passed at boot, plymouth will be activated.

# Embeds the given plymouth theme into the initramfs.

and I've run
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
after doing
genkernel initramfs

I don't know what I am missing here :(.

EDIT ok some more info :

I've tried adding `i915.modeset=1` as a kernel argument in `/etc/default/grub` but that did not help. When looking at the log file with `journalctl -b --no-pager | grep -i modesetting` nothing is printed which lead me to think that the KMS is not loaded anyway :(. I have an intel Graphic HD 5500...


cat /sys/module/i915/parameters/modeset

return -1, so KMS module

But it returns 1 if I have `i915.modeset=1` in the kernel arguments, Still no plymouth...


OK this is silly. It had a delay of 5sec before showing the splash. I added ShowDelay=0 in /etc/plymouth/plymouth.conf and it worked... I still have `i915.modeset=1` as kernel argument mind you :)
