Ticket #870 (closed defect: worksforme)
During boot, init looks for psplash in /usr/bin -- which might not be mounted yet
|Reported by:||cwixon@…||Owned by:||michael|
|Blocking:||Estimated Completion (week):|
Consider moving psplash from /usr/bin to /sbin.
psplash is launched fairly early in the boot process, and if /usr is mounted by
init *after* that, the user is treated to a text boot rather than the splash
screen and progress bar.
On my Neo, I have an ext2 partition on the MicroSD card mounted at /usr, which
is an effective way to add space for additional user programs without having to
mess around with paths.
This works pretty well, except for the aforementioned lack of the graphical
boot. After the text, it boots into X successfully and everything seems fine.
There is no hard error, but a warning does scroll by.
