seems Plymouth is a Red Hat project.
guess we'll see how they react to my bug report.

just sent:
"
Navigation, finding software that is part of the project really sucks on the website.
There IS NO NAVIGATION of the site.

it's why wikis are **** poor options for entire websites, they don't have navigation.
they work for documentation section, not entire sites.

bad enough every bug report I have ever submitted just gets deleted, the "projects"
have no interest in doing things right, only in bloating themselves into uselessness.
[ eyesight damaging defaults in xorg's automatic configuration tool reports repeatedly deleted. ]

now we get to see if plymouth will actually follow the intent of the FSF and GNU-GPL and fix the bug report I just submitted.


the last two, are why not much import is placed on freedesktop.org activities by many people, the ignoring input from others of the projects associated with it.

to the freedesktop.org contact email

Thanks for the feedback.

Owing to the fact that you are clearly a sage on these topics, but due
to the complete lack of constructive statements in this email, I
ventured to your website [http://jaqui-greenlees.net/] to see if I could
find any "pro tips" there.

Unfortunately, I was presented with this message:

Error establishing a database connection


Just thought you might like to know.

Cheers


and my reply:


ahh, so No Navigation doesn't suggest to you that maybe some LINKS to the site content are needed?
it does to anyone else that sees such a comment.
it shouldn't take 10 minutes to find a means to SEARCH for a project page.
it shouldn't take a SEARCH to find a project page.

the entire site is done as isolated pages, making what navigation is included in wiki scripts non functional.
the pages need to be cross links, and EVERY page linked to the main [ front ] page of the site.

take a look at how wikipedia has links to different pages available, always.
then look at your own site's lack of such links.


and thanks, the hosting company is fixing the db failure.

(Your) web site looks ok to me...

by dawgit In reply to fairly quick response

Other than the fact that the last post is over a year old. I'm not complaining mind you, mine is not much better. :)

yeah I know

the mysql server was down for some reason.

and I haven't posted much mainly cause nothing really needing to be said on it.

Welly welly welly well, then.

You can tell this guy that his site has a bad security cert and failing Javascript. W00t! Multiple instances of:
done_querying_notaries error: TypeError: document.getElementById("identity-box") is null

edit: Oops - that might be a Perspectives error brought on by the bad cert.

"Pro tips" myass, he was trying to dig something up.

But actually, I'm pulling a 404 on your site right now. Hrm. I do get the same valid result from all locations of the DNS server I use, though.

Anyway, I see that would be a problem, no being able to get a text mode boot. But what the **** is Plymouth?

And whatthehell is it with TR converting d or D into < randomly?

Plymouth is

by Jaqui In reply to Welly welly welly well, t ...

a Red Hat project that is an alternative to "splashy"

it's sole purpose is to support bootsplash [ graphic ] booting.

yet if I want text boot, Plymouth won't allow it at all.

Ah, I see.

by seanferd In reply to Plymouth is

Thanks, that was, I am sure, faster than me trying to look it up.

So, that's like step three in the chainloader?

called directly

by Jaqui In reply to Ah, I see.

by stage 2 grub.
it's the first thing loaded during the init sequence after the bootloader calls the init.rd

only delayed to get the partition mounted to load it.

Thanks.

by seanferd In reply to called directly

That satisfies my (near pointless, at this time) curiosity.

And I already know what you think of GRUB itself, so I'm sure this doesn't increase your admiration at all.
