Thanks for the reply @nullptr_t

It's an HP Envy 15.
HD4600 (modesetting driver) + GeForce GT-740m using nvidia proprietary with Bumblebee + bbswitch.
Bootloader: systemd-boot

kernel params:

root=PARTUUID=02531cbb-14c0-4888-b1e3-a096e60d1106 quiet splash loglevel=3 acpi_backlight=vendor nvidia-drm.modeset=1 rw

Journal for systemd -

The issue is very similar to this
I've tried with the nvidia card on both early and late KMS with the same result.
I've also noticed that the last few service messages (the ones before "Starting User Manager for UID 120...") do not get duplicated.

Thanks again for the help :)

Can you provide some more details on journal and configuration please?

I'm getting duplicated boot messages after the 0.9.3-1 upgrade.

Downgrading to 0.9.2-14 fixes this.

@Aetf, odd it worked for me here and for plymouth-git. The add_full_dir command is probably cleaner anyway.

@sovanyio, @nullptr_t

This doesn't work for me. Still only normal files were added to initcpio.

Here's the gist I'm using:

Note the add_full_dir call replaced the whole for loop.

Thanks to both! The patch is included in the new release.

For anyone struggling to get themes to work during boot--this is the fix alluded to by Aetf:


@nullptr_t please integrate

For anyone else with the "a start job is running to Hold until boot process finishes up" issue, masking the plymouth-quit-wait service worked for me:

systemctl mask plymouth-quit-wait.service

It appears that this still has the "nice" transition between the plymouth startup screen and GDM (i.e., no black screen flicker), though I noticed that now, on restart/shutdown, the plymouth graphic is no longer displayed. I can deal with that though, I just wanted the screen to not switch back to the console on bootup.

I am having an issue with plymouth which displays splash screen however causes boot to hang (using Grub2 and auto-login to tty1 -
without DM/WM) on VirtualBox. sd-plymouth hook is being used and delay is set to 1. However if I press ESC during splash screen (and get textual output) it boots normally to tty1.

Also another thing is that if I set delay to 0 I get past splash screen but the theme is some gray background with white squares. (attached screenshot)

Any advice on this is appreciated.
Thank you.

@carmelo12341 Thanks for the reference. I included that sd-plymouth.initcpio_install hook in the 0.9.2-13 release
