Custom plymouth theme
Originally created by Tails on #5948 (Redmine)
feature/tails-plymouth-theme branch we use a custom plymouth theme
that looks close to windows vista bootup. So I consier "The Tails boot
splash screen should be black with a tiny dots-based progress bar"
as pending. It however is working only on machines with KMS-enabled
graphics drivers. On other machines it falls back to the old text
plugin. This was shipped in 0.12, proved to break the boot on far too
many kinds of hardware, reverted in 0.12.1.
- Reintroduce this in
experimental, without enabling KMS on more hardware this time. code
#* basically done in
#* we also need to install plymouth-drm
#*# either built from our custom
0.8.3-20~bpo60+1backported source package, that’s worth trying first
#*# or from Wheezy’s source package (on top of it, we probably want to cherry-pick fixes for Debian bug #691598, Debian bug #683764, Debian bug #691794, Debian bug #695706 and Debian bug #683763 like Progress Linux does
- Test it on various hardware for a while.
(This was part of implementing windows theme (#5867 (closed))).
