I understand what you are talking about.
But the system looks all set. Both vmlinuz-linux and initrams-linux.img are in /boot folder, which is in /, which is the sd6, which UUID is pointed in GRUB.
And I’ve regenerated both GRUB and and initramfs with:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg mkinitcpio --preset linux
I have not changed the UUID by any means. I think my previous post sounded like I did, but I didn’t. They are exactly the same prior installing plymouth.
Looks like plymouth is working but it can’t fetch the theme to show it. All I see is this, no matter which theme I set. But again, it works fine restarting/shutting down.
I really really appreciate the help. But i’m starting to think that my system is one of those from @joekamprad reply.
Ok, my devices UUID are:
[[email protected] ~]$ ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ | sort --key 11 total 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 18A8-60C0 -> ../../sda1 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 12D7-0287 -> ../../sda2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 888AD8968AD8825C -> ../../sda4 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 1628DCD628DCB5C9 -> ../../sda5 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 4d9e7d7a-d31e-4795-80e4-96af41660856 -> ../../sda6 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 3E08D3D608D38AF3 -> ../../sda7 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 0107a434-5029-4cd3-b8bf-72bfb05d487e -> ../../sda8 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 out 1 12:04 151459ea-b940-4dfa-b531-1581ed654b3b -> ../../sda9
Antergos is installed at sda6. The UUID at the kernel parameters points to it.
linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=4d9e7d7a-d31e-4795-80e4-96af41660856 rw quiet splash resume=UUID=0107a434-5029-4cd3-b8bf-72bfb05d487e
You must use the UUID of the partition, where Antergos is installed.
So it is
I haven’t followed the above yet, because I was doing some testing and found something interesting.
On Kernel Parameters page, GRUB section, it says:
Press e when the menu shows up and add them on the linux line: linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=978e3e81-8048-4ae1-8a06-aa727458e8ff quiet splash Press Ctrl+x to boot with these parameters. To make the change persistent after reboot, while you could manually edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg with the exact line from above, the best practice is to: Edit /etc/default/grub and append your kernel options to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
My linux line in the GRUB parameters is:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=0107a434-5029-4cd3-b8bf-72bfb05d487e rw quiet splash /resume=UUID=0107a434-5029-4cd3-b8bf-72bfb05d487e
So in my parameters quiet and splash are already there. Removing rw and/or /resume… doesn’t work either, but, if I replace my UUID with the one provided on the article, it works! I can see the splash screen, but unfortunately it ends in a very long boot screen, then comes an error screen alerting that the UUID could not be found .
Should I change my UUID on the /etc/defalt/grub file with the article UUID? I’m afraid of doing it and end locking my machine.
Hi, I’m trying to set a splash screen on boot, after the grub selection.
I installed the packages plymouth and plymouth-theme-antergos from antergos repos and followed the instructions on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Plymouth.
System is up-to-date so are the packages above.
After setting everything and rebooting, all I can see where the splash screen should be is a gray screen with 3 little white boxes alongside each other and 3 white boxes with question marks in it around the screen, the it proceeds to lightdm login screen normally (I’m using KDE). Example
Oddly, it works when rebooting/shutting down the machine. I can see the splash screen briefly.
What did I do wrong? I’ve revised every step and everything looks right, I just can’t see if I missed something
Sorry I didn’t attached any logs, I’m new to Linux, so I don’t know which logs attach in this situation.
