Fedora 10 and Plymouth

1227318404000 » Tagged as: bootstrap

My Fedora 10 installation is now booting up with Plymouth.

It was only after I added the 'vga=0x318' flag (as mentioned at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/10/Alpha/ReleaseNotes#Boot_up and disabled bootchart that the splash screen appeared. The new boot process is supposed to be faster but it doesn't feel like it in fact it feels slightly slower. Without boot chart I will need to revert to a stopwatch to time it. The fact that this installation is the result of a live upgrade rather than a proper upgrade from a DVD might be the cause of it (some of the init scripts etc that the installer might have changed might not have been changed by yum)
