I try to solve two problems: I want to have an animated splash screen. And I want to remove the black screen between Linux splash and the start of a QT-application (xserver and qt need approx. 1-2 seconds for startup). Both problems I could solve with plymouth. Or somebody has another idea?
Plymouth and dracut are already part of my yocto-image. As I understand, dracut should enable Plymouth automatically if it is installed. I build an initramfs-image with dracut (which is in /boot -directory), but how can I integrate that initramfs-image? What are the steps to use plymouth in Yocto in general, are there any instructions?
actually during boot it says:
[ OK ] Started Show Plymouth Boot Screen.
[ OK ] Reached target Paths.
[ OK ] Started Forward Password Requests to Plymouth Directory Watch.
[ OK ] Started /etc/rc.local Compatibility.
Starting Hold until boot process finishes up...
Starting Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen...
but it shows no splash.
