Bob, was this solved or are you no longer interested in disabling plymouth?

Yes, thanks for asking.

In the past I have been disabling plymouth by edting the kernel line to remove "rhgb" and then rebuilding grub2, which is a bit cumbersome. after reading a bit I learned that it's easier to just set plymouth's default theme to "details".

in case anyone's interested, this is a one-liner that works for me:


# plymouth-set-default-theme -R details

IMO you dont need that, just press ESC when plymouth starts an you'll get the sameresult ( details )

for those of us who can't stand the plymouth boot screen and don't ever want to see it, pressing ESC at every boot is a PITA.

it's nice to be able to replace having to press ESC at every boot with a simple command that only has to be issued once, thereby assuring that the problem never recurs.

choice is good.

I have always disabled plymouth's graphical boot stuff. I always wanted the details. And F17 with that stupid looking hot dog made me glad I like to see the details anyway :D
