    Phoronix: What's New In The Land Of Plymouth?

    One of the open-source projects that hasn't been talked about in a while on Phoronix (over one year) is Red Hat's Plymouth project...

        Pageviews get ads which support the site.

        But it also confirms that Phoronix is keeping up and there really is nothing new to report.

              I've been playing with plymouth a bit recently in order to make a decent boot screen. Something I've been trying to find out is where exactly it connects to libpng. The reason i ask is b/c it would be great to be able to use mngs for animation rather than the rather limited png manipulation, and mng should allow for larger and more complex animation b/c of using deltas.

                  I get that too. Is it because of nVidia drivers and them going separate ways?

                      No is not even nvidia drivers.

                      In both my Intel and ATI, i use open drivers and plymouth still sucks big time...

                      people just keep asking me what is wrong with my computers.

                        Well one thing I've noticed about plymouth is that it seems to handle multi-display scenarios better than it used to. It used to do stupid crap, corruption, blinking, etc., when transitioning to GDM with multiple displays. Now it fades smoothly across all displays. First time I noticed this was after updating to F15.

                          Just had hard time trying to make Plymouth work right with SystemD (I'm using NVidia blob driver) on Arch Linux. I've finaly been able to get a splash after I reinstalled it using the Aur package Plymouth-git-systemd. I however have to press F2 on boot because it doesn't kill plymouth before switching to GDM, leaving the bootsplash on. And still no bootsplash on shutdown. Seems like there's more configuration/tweaking to do.
