Is there anything special to be done in order to get this package
By the way we are using nfs netboot setup but I think is shouldn't
matter much, since I don get the image build at all.
I can attach the full binary.log if needed (I am not sure if it is
allowed to send files to the list)
I do not have an answer for you. I do have a warning.
Plymouth will exclude a lot of hardware from booting and shutting down
with out messing with it.
My Dell XPS 420 (3 years old) with Radeon HD 2400 PRO will not boot
without removing splash from the instruction string of the menu entry.
Boot time varies from 2 to 20 minutes.
It will not shut down. Alt+SysRq+b works.
plymouth.d is supposed to get the boot logs written. I have fooled with
ubuntu with plymouth for 3 versions now and have yet to have my first
boot log written with plymouth in charge.
All that for something that should give you a few seconds of eyecandy.
Hope your project works great.
