Description Dennis Gilmore 2008-11-21 10:49:00 EST
Description of problem:

doing a yum upate from F-9 to rawhide I saw the following

Installing     : kernel                                      [ 752/2199]
The default plymouth plugin (.so) doesn't exist

the plymouth plugins were not installed before plymouth or the kernel.  so mkinitrd could not find them to install into the initrd

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

do you have the whole transaction?
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-11-21 11:02:55 EST
oh also, did you have rhgb installed before doing the upgrade?
Comment 3 Dennis Gilmore 2008-11-21 11:24:57 EST
looks like rhgb was not previously installed.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-11-21 11:47:13 EST
so we currently have:

        PLUGIN_NAME=$(basename $(readlink ${LIBDIR}/plymouth/default.so) .so)
        if [ -z "$PLUGIN_NAME" ]; then
                $0 --reset
                PLUGIN_NAME=$(basename $(readlink ${LIBDIR}/plymouth/default.so) .so)

but the condition can never succeed.  Should be 

if [ "$PLUGIN_NAME" = ".so" ]; then

Fixed upstream:

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 00:43:44 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
