Troubleshooting: Small black squares is still an issue using plymouth 0.8.3, linux 3.0 and AMD catalyst 11.7. The solution provided in the Troubleshooting section works fine. Mclaud2000 10:26, 8 August 2011 (EDT)
- Funny, the only thing I can think of is that the author intended to reference another article (or create a new one?) after a little while ("5" minutes), and then forgot because he kept editing the article (the diff is rather complex). @Hellpe please test if Plymouth works without that step (nothing bad should happen anyway, at most be ready to login by console, I'd say) and remove that step if not needed (and add a link to display manager, which is currently missing). -- Kynikos (talk) 01:55, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Plymouth and KDE
I think kdebase-workspace-plymouth package from AUR should be mentioned in this article. Without it KDE does not take off splash and weird things are happening. Phitherek (talk) 00:45, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
- I stumbled upon the same problem and documented it in the Installation section. -- Giga (talk) 11:03, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
AGP module not loaded before graphics module when using plymouth hook
I was getting a "[drm:radeon_agp_init [radeon]] *ERROR* unable to acquire AGP: -19" error at boot, after "starting version 219" and before plymouth took over the screen when following the instructions. E.g. hooks="base udev plymouth ...", despite having modules="via_agp radeon ...".
Not sure if it's a problem with the current plymouth hook but I removed it from mkinitcpio.conf, rebuilt initramfs and the error goes away -and- I still have plymouth on boot. --Kit (talk) 21:13, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
