Description FlyingWaffle 2020-11-08 22:07:42 UTC
I would like to request the addition of Plymouth boot splash support in Genkernel.  With genkernel-next no longer supported or available on the repo a replacement would be nice.  This is also (as far as I can tell) the last major feature from gk-next that gk does not have.

I have coded and tested my own implementation of this and submitted a pull request on the genkernel GitHub page:

Please let me know if this is feasible, or if there are any changes I need to make.

Saw that my previous patch had merge conflicts, so I resolved those.  Patch for current 9999 ebuild in official repos attached.

Thanks for the effort you put in here FlyingWaffle, that's much appreciated. I don't know what the exact status is of this patch, but I have generated one that works for genkernel-4.3.1 for those interested:
