How to disable plymouth ? (solved by splash=off)

Hi all,

With my SSD, I think Calculate will boot faster if I disable totally plymouth.

How to disable plymouth ?

I try to remove quiet and splash=silent,theme:calculate from cmdline in GRUB but plymouth always start !

Thanks for your help

Calculate no longer uses Plymouth. You can make some acceleration system boot speed and some performance optimizations by compiling a customized kernel without initramfs. It’s not simple, but the effect will be.

First, add the flag “minimal” to the package sys-kernel/calculate-sources:

echo "sys-kernel/calculate-sources -minimal" >> /etc/portage/package.use/custom

To assemble, use cl-kernel.

If you remove all unused modules in the kernel, it will be compiled several times faster. During system boot will not use the initramfs, not scenery, optimized kernel will occupy less memory.

Is it possible to disable this splash but not recompile kernel ?

You can unmerge media-gfx/splashutils and media-gfx/splash-themes-calculate packages.

OK it works, but asked at next update :’(

Probably themes is depends ofr calculate-sources with USE="themes". In order to continue to use binary kernel you can change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT parameter in /etc/default/grub


and perform <>.

splash=off => Yeah ! I like that !!!
