If you use a non-default theme, does it work? Part of the reason for the plymouth hook is so you can theme it.

NyQuil's fix alone didn't work for me, and I use KDM. I don't know why what I did fixed it, but it did. In addition to NyQuil's fix, I:

Commented out all lines in /usr/lib/systemd/system/plymouth-quit-wait.service
Removed "plymouth" hook and ran mkinitcpio
Left "splash" in my rEFInd kernel parameters

@flamusdiu: I'm using KDM.

@NyQuil: Do you use a login manager such as SLiM, gdm, or something else?

I just noticed that moving from SLiM to SDDM seems to have fixed the issue for me without modifying any files but I'll need to do another test on my laptop to be sure.

@NyQuil: I'll have to try this later. Thanks

I had the same issue with Xorg and KDM (Xserver timed out and KDM didn't start), so I changed line 7 in /usr/lib/systemd/system/plymouth-quit.service

ExecStart=-/usr/bin/plymouth quit --retain-splash
ExecStart=-/usr/bin/plymouth quit

This fixed the issue for me on all my machines...

Still broken for GDM users. plymouth-quit-wait.service just hangs, prevents Xorg and GDM startup.

@martkzz: when I get back on my laptop -- I'll see what's different and go from there -- might be an easy fix.

@martkzz: that's what I've heard but I don't use GDM. =(

I'll take a look.

Something seems to be broken in this package for users of GDM.
