# 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).
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2013-06-03 11:03:23 EDT
If plymouth is not installed, /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/50plymouth/module-setup.sh does not install anything for plymouth in your initrd.
Comment 4 udo 2013-06-03 11:13:00 EDT
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.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2013-06-03 11:23:23 EDT
Because things worked differently if plymouth was used in the initramfs, special handling in dracut had to be done.
Comment 6 udo 2013-06-03 11:54:33 EDT
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?
