Description of problem:

/usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinfinity/spinfinity.plymouth contains an invalid reference to /usr/share/plymouth/themes/throbgress which does not exist.
Changing it to point to /usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinfinity and recreating the initrd makes plymouth graphical boot work again

How reproducible:
Current plymouth spinfinity package is broken, including the latest from koji

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest spinfinity package
2. Update kernel, or re-create initrd
Actual results:
Plymouth text mode boot

Updated packages are here:

Comment 3 cornel panceac 2009-05-19 22:42:39 EDT
still text progress bar with plymouth*2009.05.15.1*i586

it's a fresh f11 preview install (not coming from f10 or beta, etc), updated.
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-05-21 11:02:01 EDT
you need to rebuild your initrd by installing a new kernel or running /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd before new plymouth installs take effect at boot up.

thank you, but rebuilding initrd was not enough. following these instructions from will woods (on fedora-devel-list) worked, 

# yum install plymouth-system-theme
# plymouth-set-default-theme charge
# /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd

but there's still no graphics on shutdown.
Comment 6 cornel panceac 2009-05-21 12:15:40 EDT
oh, after latest updates the shutdown is graphical too.
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 11:52:20 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
