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.
I don't know if it is still possible, but I remember it used to be
possible to have different initrd/initramfs layered on top of another.
This way, you could separate the splash part (plymouth + theme) from the
main initrd (and also, not regenerate the main initrd when just the
theme or plymouth is updated). I remember dracut author looked at it
years ago but I don't know if it was discarded.
