Description Sam Varshavchik 2017-07-13 17:43:48 EDT
Description of problem:

The -R option fails to rebuild initramfs, does nothing at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@thinkpad boot]# rpm -q plymouth-theme-solar
plymouth-theme-solar-0.9.3-0.7.20160620git0e65b86c.fc26.x86_64
[root@thinkpad boot]# rpm -q plymouth
plymouth-0.9.3-0.7.20160620git0e65b86c.fc26.x86_64

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

[root@thinkpad boot]# date
Thu Jul 13 17:39:17 EDT 2017
[root@thinkpad boot]# plymouth-set-default-theme -R solar
[root@thinkpad boot]# plymouth-set-default-theme
solar
[root@thinkpad boot]# uname -a
Linux thinkpad 4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jun 29 20:09:48 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@thinkpad boot]# ls -alctr /boot | tail

Actual results:

-rw-------.  1 root root 17844515 Jul  1 08:43 initramfs-4.11.7-200.fc25.x86_64.img

dr-xr-xr-x.  6 root root     5120 Jul 11 12:45 .


Expected results:

The -R option should rebuild the initramfs, as promised. It does nothing.

Additional info:

plymouth-set-default-theme -R does sit for a few seconds, grinding about at something, and rebuilding something. But there's nothing new in /boot, and the initramfs is not rebuilt.
