Hi, I don't know what happened in this installation that plymouth shows me a gray theme at startup, at shutdown if it shows the chosen theme.

emerge -pv plymouth
Code:
[ebuild   R    ] sys-boot/plymouth-0.9.4-r1::gentoo  USE="gdm gtk libkms pango (split-usr) -debug -static-libs -udev"


/etc/genkernel.conf
Code:
# passed at boot, plymouth will be activated.
PLYMOUTH="yes"

# Embeds the given plymouth theme into the initramfs.
PLYMOUTH_THEME="fade-in"

Hi elover,

everything I say is probably wrong. But in my experience:

Genkernel does not work with plymouth. You should use genkernel-next or dracut.
Dracut doesn't need any further configurations.

Plymouth needs udev in initramfs.
So set the USE=udev for Plymouth
Code:

sys-boot/plymouth-0.9.4-r1::gentoo  USE="gtk libkms pango (split-usr) udev -debug -gdm -static-libs" 0 KiB


Genkernel-next requires in genkernel.conf
Code:

UDEV="yes"
PLYMOUTH="yes"
PLYMOUTH_THEME="fade-in"


Add your favorite theme also in:
Code:

cat /etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf
[Demon]
Theme=fade-in
Show Delay=0


The /etc/default/grub requires:
Code:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet --other parameters-- quiet splash"


Switching from one theme to another theme sometimes requires completely turning off and restarting the PC.
Or create the initramfs again, and again. Genkernel-next works somewhat unreliably.

So good luck
Ma
