Subject: live-initramfs: support splashy

Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.132.1-1
Severity: wishlist


Hello,

There are many references to usplash_write in live-initramfs but no
references to splashy.

When splashy is installed in the root image it shows on boot and does
nothing until the init from the root image is executed.

It should not be too hard to add splashy support where usplash is used.

Thanks

Michal

Oh? Splashy currently works quite well within Debian Live. Running the image
generated by:

 $ lh_config --bootappend-live "quiet vga=791 splash" --packages "splashy"
 $ lh_build

.. "just works" for me under Lenny, including movement in the status bar
before the rootfs's init is executed. You can also see splashy in action in
Webconverger.

Hi,

confirmed, splashy works without additional support required by
live-initramfs out-of-the-box, including pre rootfs-init, thus closing
this bug.

Regards,
Daniel

For me there is a long delay between start of splashy and the time the
progress bar starts to fill. I use httpfs so this cannot be attributed
to the time during which the image is downloaded. If I turn off
splashy just after the bar starts filling I see init running.

There are some calls to usplash for setting timeout and for the
"remove CD" prompt which would obviously fail with splashy. However,
most of the lack of support should be probably blamed on
initramfs-tools.

Also splashy now has a bug that prevents it from displaying the boot
messages, it can only display the progress bar or crash. Since the
progress is not known during initramfs it is unlikely that there could
be anything displayed at all except perhaps the "indefinite" progress
which typically keeps a filled bit moving from left to right and back
inside the progress bar.

Thanks

Michal
