For reference, I did try to be backward compatible (we did have this
support some time ago for all flavors), but just added more messages
type (I wouldn't say the ubuntu logo theme is the cleanest code-wise):
If my memory is correct (I didn't do the first implementation with
upstart years ago, just modified to work with systemd-fsckd), but
basically, there are 2 channels of messages that you hook in in your theme:
* an "update status" plymouth callback:
systemd-fsckd pass fsckd:<number_devices>:<progress>:<l10n_string>
* another is a "message" plymouth callback prefixed by
"fsckd-cancel-msg:l10n_string" with the cancel message to display when
The rest like handling Ctrl+C and such is done in plymouth side itself
if my memory is correct (I don't remember if debian took it).
