Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 969802
has plymouth files
Last modified: 2013-06-03 11:54:33 EDT
Description of problem:
dractut rpm has plymouth files
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -ql dracut-024-25.git20130205.fc18.x86_64|grep plymouth
plymouth files in plymouth rpms
# rpm -ql dracut|grep plym
I do not want plymouth.
I expect dracut to be clean of plymouth files.
Same for systemd and same for fedora-logos (although they have some trademark/copyright excuse I do not understand).
If plymouth is not installed, /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/50plymouth/module-setup.sh does not install anything for plymouth in your initrd.
Sure, but WHY OH WHY did they not include plymouth related fules with plymouth*rpm files?
Currently plymouth stuff is ALL OVER the place:
Looks highly untidy to me.
This is in the corner of a distro that is tidy, modular and allows choice of what to install and what not to install.
plymouth is just messy.
PackageKit and NetworkManager are dependency-hell.
So please start with the easy stuff and please put the files where they belong.
Because things worked differently if plymouth was used in the initramfs, special handling in dracut had to be done.
That is the runtime situation. It matters where the files are coming from, from the rpm perspective.
plymouth stuff belongs to a plymouth-* rpm and does have no place elsewhere.
Why is that so hard to understand?
