    Phoronix: Plymouth Graphical Boot System Sees Rare Update

    Most Linux distributions now use Plymouth as their graphical boot system / splash screen that leverages DRM/KMS kernel support. While many Linux distributions rely on Plymouth, there hasn't been a formal release in the better part of a year -- until yesterday...

      Funny. When KDE proposed Qt-only (i.e. not depending on kdelibs) software to FDO, they told KDE that FDO software can't use a single toolkit. Now that. Double standards?

        Never worked for me

        I used Plymouth on Ubuntu, multiple versions.
        On Intel, AMD and Nvidia graphics. With closed and open source drivers.
        It never really worked any good.
