@rharish, yes, you are right. I've missed that. Thanks.

@tba pkgconf is part of base-devel, so it's not needed. This is mentioned here:

Thanks for packaging.

I've got this error

..../plymouth/src/plymouth-0.9.5/configure: line 11825: syntax error near unexpected token `IMAGE,'
..../plymouth/src/plymouth-0.9.5/configure: line 11825: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(IMAGE, libpng >= 1.2.16 )'

PKG_CHECK_MODULES needs pkg-config. So pkgconf should be added to makedepends.

@Taijian, regarding the systemd warning, an upstream bug report has been created.

@Taijian sorry but now the latest change breaks my sddm. Right after the loading screen when the sddm is suppose to load, the screen flashes, turns black, and the plymouth animation shows again for a brief moment. It keeps doing that in an endless loop unless I hit F1 which shows the console and after a while sddm loads fine. It seems as if something prevents the sddm from starting up and causes it to crash.

Reverting back to 0.9.5-4 solves the issue.

Edit: 0.9.5-6 seems to be working fine.

@Taijian I can confirm; it works. Thanks, and hope you're well now!

It works well now. Thx @Taijian

OK, sorry to everyone who had trouble with the last update.

Lessons learned: Do not make changes late at night just prior to getting sick - you might screw up and then not be able to fix things for several days...

I think you forgot to remove gdm-plymouth.service, lightdm-plymouth.service and sddm-plymouth.service files from the repository: even if they are not used anymore, we still have to download/check them.

@taijian Can confirm I have the same issue as @maoxuner and @rharish here. Removing splash in kerenel params let me boot, but without animations. If I don't do this I have to do "" or lower to get in.
