Is there work in progress to fix the Mepis bug with Plymouth?

What is Mepis doing/not doing that differs from PCLOS and Fedora?

PCLinuxOS and Fedora are from the Red Hat family tree using RPM packages.
Mepis is from the Debian family tree and uses Deb packages.

Most any offshoot is based on one of the big four.

Thanks for that JBoman.

Sadly, I don't have a kdm directory in X11 so I can't test the fix.

The link Jerry gave you is for Pardus not Debian,
/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc
just make sure you make a backup of kdmrc before editing anything,

Thanks for that Danum.

Sadly the editing kdmrc hasn't worked.
