It seems like there's an option 4 missing
here: Add the required
functionality. Is the lack of those libraries in the initrd on purpose
or has someone not added the functionality to Dracut yet? I'm all for
unifying on standard packages, but I don't want to see user experience
regressions in the process. I assume that Dracut will only include the
luks stuff if it's required for the root file system -- couldn't we key
off of that to determine whether to include the libraries for Plymouth?
The required functionality can be easily added to Dracut and it would just to
take maybe 5 minutes to do so. However I wanted to take the opportunity to
validate if this is still the preferred option as that we had quite some
complaints about the size of the initrd, etc.
Separate from the install-system / live-system initrd,
what NEEDS to be in the initrd / initramfs phase?
Can we make a renewed definition, to get a smaller standard?
As it is, mkinitrd runs every kernel update at least, would it
that bad to run it during system install / update once?
For most, the host-specific (-H) option would bring a reduction.
If we tamper with this stuff anyway, please, can we add an option for:
non-graphic / text-only boot? Getting rid off Plymouth / other graphic
boot things gets harder every new distro release.
Maybe call it "Text-only (Server)" boot.
