plymouth/dracut and i.mx6

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.
