No problem, if you do put it in community could the arch-logo theme that's based on Ubuntu's plymouth theme be added as well maybe in a plymouth theme package which might include other themes from aur. Could this be considered?

I got sidetracked with other stuff. Thanks for remembering me. I'll revaluate the situation.

I thought this was heading to the community repository? It's been a few months since FFY00 said it would and as of now it hadn't appeared in the official repository nor the testing repository, is there a reason for the delay????

I recommend to decrease the number of --number-of-tries from the commit https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=plymouth&id=3f7e30ce4a77 .

Yes, that is okay for me. Since the last release the package includes the first patch after the 0.9.3 release, a patch from a non-stable version, that was requested. The modifications in the releases since 0.9.3-1 where requested.

I am interested in moving this to [community]. Is this ok with you?

I think the maintainer can update this package to include the #include <sys/sysmacros.h> patch. glibc recently made its major version upgraded 11 days ago in the Arch official repository, presumably removing the #include <sys/sysmacros.h> in its header. The patch itself made its way into the plymouth's official repo, but there has been no release since then. So, for the time being, there is no other way than patching it to make it build.

@ABOhiccups Download the patch. Assuming path to the patch file is /path/to/sysmacros.patch, 1. Open PKGBUILD and look for prepare() function. 2. Append patch -p1 -i /path/to/sysmacros.path at the end of the function. 3. Do makepkg stuffs as usual.

@koassim How do I use a patch? This link is from Gentoo. We're on Arch Linux.
