Attention:

Due to the fact that plymouth stable releases by upstream are few and far between, I'd like to recommend to anyone experiencing stability issues or bugs to try out the plymouth-git package as a basic troubleshooting step, because many bugs will already have been fixed there.

@Taijian: Followup on my external monitor issue, since I bought a thunderbolt dock I no longer have the issue, I guess the kernel must load these later on and not conflict with Plymouth anymore

@Sanras yeah sure. Just install the plymouth-git package. Everything should work out of the box. I just had to re-set my plymouth theme.

@m.schabhuettl, thank you for the info, that's good to know. Since plymouth-git conflicts plymouth, does that mean I can just install plymouth-git right now, and it will replace normal plymouth without any further configuration necessary?

@Sanras Got exactly the same problem. Changing to plymouth-git fixes the issues.But the latest commit of plymouth-git has problems with AUR helpers (showing there is a newer version even if there isn't).

Seems that after the latest sddm update, plymouth now also breaks sddm.

When I boot up, the boot screen displays, goes away, and then the system freezes at a black screen.

I have found two fixes for the issue. One is to rollback the sddm package, which fixes the issue.

Removing splash from boot parameters and booting without the animation also fixes the issue. This is why I suspect this is an issue to do with plymouth.

Hopefully this gets fixed soon. It seems that plymouth is getting more and more broken.

@avrelaun: This is a pity. I had hoped (sorta) that your's might just be #118, because the fix for that is already in plymouth-git. But if that doesn't help...

Could you maybe open a new bug report upstream and link it here for posterity?

@Taijian: Tried plymouth-git, also updated the UEFI to the latest version, same problem. As for the issues, #102 is different (it does not just flickers but hangs all outputs to black with blinking cursor), and #118 might be similar. It's on a ThinkPad X1C7 with intel GPU.

@avrelaun: Also, could you try out plymouth-git and see if maybe the issue is already fixed there?

@avrelaun: Could you check these two upstream bugs and report back if either one fits with your issue?
