Xenial minimal install: "W: plymouth: The plugin label.so is missing,
the selected theme might not work as expected."
Status in plymouth package in Ubuntu:
Status in plymouth source package in Xenial:
All users of ubuntu-text-based plymouth themes get a spurious warning when generating initramfs. This warning is trivially fixable.
Only the regression potential of a new binary build. The only change to the code is to bypass this warning message for the 'ubuntu-text' plugin.
1. Install the plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text package.
2. Uninstall/deconfigure all graphical themes (e.g.: apt remove plymouth-theme-ubuntu)
3. Run update-initramfs -u
4. Confirm that a warning message is shown about label.so being missing.
5. Install plymouth from -proposed.
6. Run update-initramfs -u
7. Confirm that no warning message is shown.
8. Boot and confirm that the text theme is shown correctly.
I installed a minimal Xenial system. Whenever the initramfs is regenerated, I see
W: plymouth: The plugin label.so is missing, the selected theme might not work as expected.
W: plymouth: You might want to install the plymouth-themes and plymouth-label package to fix this.
The following plymouth packages are installed:
# dpkg -l | grep plymouth
ii libplymouth4:amd64 0.9.2-3ubuntu13 amd64 graphical boot animation and logger - shared libraries
ii plymouth 0.9.2-3ubuntu13 amd64 boot animation, logger and I/O multiplexer
ii plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text 0.9.2-3ubuntu13 amd64 boot animation, logger and I/O multiplexer - ubuntu text theme
A minimal install of Ubuntu should pull in the appropriate packages so
that Plymouth doesn't complain. (As it is, I don't see much of a
splash screen on startup.)
