Hello

I rolled from testing today into 8.4, I ran
Code:
Pacman -Syu


all the packages installed properly. I have never used boot splash because I prefer to see the messages. Unfortunately I now for some reason have the boot splash when I log in or log out. I went to Linhes Advanced and the box for boot splash was not checked. So I checked the button and then rebooted but no change. Next I unchecked the button and the rebooted and still no change. Can't seem to get rid of it.

Any ideas...

I can't think of anything changed in the R8.4 cycle that would have affected the boot splash. How long ago had you updated from testing?

I setup testing around 4/5/2016 and it's been fine with no splash screen. I rolled to r8.4 today and it's stll fine but it added the splash screen to my PC.

I saw a few messages
WD719x needs firmware
aci94xx needs firmware

The grub might have something to do with it but rechecking the options should have fixed it. Try running sudo plymouth_config.py manually.

You can see the messages when booting by pressing F1.

I am thinking all that needs be done is check the box in the menu and then manually recreate the grub config. I am not sure why it isn't doing it right now.
Code:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I checked the button and then ran

Code:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found LinHES runit:
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
Found fallback initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img
Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+/memtest.bin
done

Rebooted, then unchecked the button and rebooted

The buttton is still broken...

After unchecking the button you need to run grub-mkconfig again to write the new config to /boot.

I just pushed some updates that fix this so just pacman -Syu
