An easier method would be to upgrade plymouth from the community repo (the kde experimental one) It was necessary to upgrade plymouth to support the newer xorg, not KDE 4.6.5 or 4.7.4, so you don't have to upgrade that if you don't wish to.

It's currently the same as the Wheezy version:

Code: Select all

steve@mepis1:~$ apt-cache policy plymouth
plymouth:
  Installed: 0.8.3-20mcr110+1
  Candidate: 0.8.3-20mcr110+1
  Version table:
 *** 0.8.3-20mcr110+1 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.8.3-9.1 0
        801 ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/main amd64 Packages

The plymouth removal was an unintended result of the gtk+2 upgrade & gtk+3 addition to the kde 4.6.5 experimental repos.
I've backported the Wheezy plymouth today and it's currently available in the repos.

When upgrading plymouth it updates the intramfs (necessary for the way plymouth works). If plymouth-themes-mepis-11 has been removed, then you'll get a generic Debian 6.0.1 splash screen afterwards.

To fix this, reinstall the theme and in a root Konsole terminal run

plymouth-set-default-theme -R MEPIS-11.0

If you've installed other themes you want to try, find out their correct names with

plymouth-set-default-theme -l

and run the above command with the name of your preferred name replacing the MEPIS-11.0

Tim, did you just add a backport of the sid/wheezy Plymouth (0.8.3-20mcr110+1) to the kde experimental repo? I didn't see it earlier today.

With the backported Wheezy plymouth you also need to install the plymouth-drm package, otherwise you get :
[root@mepis1 kent]# plymouth-set-default-theme MEPIS-11.0 -R
/usr/lib/plymouth/script.so does not exist
[root@mepis1 kent]#

That file was in the squeeze (0.8.3-9) plymouth package, but the plymouth-drm package now installs the /usr/lib/plymouth/script.so file. The -drm package was split from the plymouth package starting with version 0.8.3-10.

{I suppose the Mepis plymouth theme package could be updated by changing it's plymouth dependency to plymouth-drm}

Good idea.
The new version, plymouth-themes-mepis11_0.1mcr110+5, is now in the kde 4.6.5 experimental repo.
I used a split depends [ Depends: plymouth-drm | plymouth (<< 0.8.3-10) ] to allow it to work properly with either version of plymouth. If plymouth is upgraded while this version is installed, plymouth-drm will be pulled in automatically.

Thanks guys. If I read things correctly, it looks like it wasn't something I did but just an upgrade glitch. So, since my system is likely ok with everything else, then I will just reinstall plymouth. So, just to be sure I get the right stuff, exactly which repo do I need and which packages should I install for plymouth for the Roadblock 64B version. Thanks.

OK I installed plymouth ok from the kde test repo, but I got the error mentioned above. I tried to install "plymouth-drm" but I find that it depends on "libdrm-nouveau1a" which is not installable. It seems its not in the repos. So plymouth still doesn't work for me.

Oops!
libdrm-nouveau1a is in the MEPIS 11 Testing CR, shown as you would see it in Synaptic

Code: Select all

http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testrepo/
mepis11cr
test


It appears to be safe to put this into the KDE 4.6.5 repo (along with the corresponding radeon & intel libdrm packages) as it doesn't incur any other dependencies and has been well tested by the folks who have upgraded their xserver-xorg from the testing repo.
Reload in about an hour & libdrm-nouveau1a should be installable.

That sounds great. Thanks for checking.
