displaying the non frightening (G)UI to request the passphrase
seems (often) not to work in 13.1:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=851960

Which is exactly why we need somebody to actively maintain plymouth..

I am aware there are users who prefer graphical boot screens.

I just followed the hint of
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=834063#c3
to uninstall plymouth and run mkinitrd and the initrds shrinked from
22.8MB to 10.4MB which is quite a benefit for the small default boot
partitions of systems with encrypted rootfs and with multiverse kernels.
Maybe this hint could even be added to the release-notes of 13.1 :-)

Regards,
Dieter
