No plymouth after upgrade to latest; how to debug plymouth?

Postby Recy » 13 Feb 2015 03:35

So I updated my system, and now the plymouth splash doesn't show, which wouldn't be so bad if the luks password prompt didn't depend on it. As of now, I have to wait several minutes until things time out, then I haphazardly have to put in the password in the jumble of output and hope for the best. Eventually it gets to the maintenance mode prompt, then I just press Ctrl+D and I am able to boot.

I get this on systemctl status plymouth-start:

● plymouth-start.service - Show Plymouth Boot Screen
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/plymouth-start.service; static)
Active: failed (Result: signal) since Thu 2015-02-12 20:27:03 MST; 2min 38s ago
Process: 11548 ExecStartPost=/bin/plymouth show-splash (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Code: Select all

systemctl status <servicename>
dmesg |grep <servicename>
sudo journalctl -a -u=<servicename>
if you had gdb you can also use it to debug plymouth.

I already tried that. I posted the output of systemctl status. None of it shows the cause of the failure, or if it does I can't interpret it.

Try to (re)set the Plymouth theme with the updated Debian Plymouth Manager and make sure that Plymouth is the latest version.

Thanks. I tried this and it didn't bring back the plymouth boot, but now I have the textmode splash, which at least allows me to boot up as normal.
