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.

Why is the gdm-plymouth.service symlink included?

The link is broken and systemd reports over and over this when applying presets.

It seems that it's no longer recommended or necessary anyway: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gdm-plymouth/#pinned-761822

Yup, I misread you. :P

@whynothugo, I think you misunderstood me. I tried to explain that all packages of base-devel ahould not be included as make dependencies, such as automake and patch. I believe you said the same thing, so we should be aligned.

@ArthurBorsboom All those packages are part of base-devel. From the link you posted:

The group base-devel is assumed to be already installed when building with makepkg. Members of this group should not be included in makedepends array.

@ljdswer285 Packages patch, autoconf, automake should not be included as make dependencies.

See https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PKGBUILD#makedepends

Some make dependencies are not included in pkgbuild. Such as patch, autoconf and automake

@mephinet: Please see this Wiki entry: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Plymouth#%22Unit_configured_to_use_KillMode=none%22_error_message_in_logs

TL:DR - This has been fixed upstream but no new release seems to be forthcoming any time soon. If you want the fix, please switch to the -git package here on the AUR (or badger the upstream people about doing a new release...).

FYI, something that should be addressed: A warning reported by systemd:

systemd[1]: /usr/lib/systemd/system/plymouth-start.service:15: Unit configured to use KillMode=none. This is unsafe, as it disables systemd's process lifecycle management for the service. Please update your service to use a safer KillMode=, such as 'mixed' or 'control-group'. Support for KillMode=none is deprecated and will eventually be removed.
