ERROR: Binary /lib/systemd/network/99-default.link or some of its library dependencies could not be copied

Question

I'm trying to set up an initramfs in order to get Plymouth working, but it complains about a missing systemd file even though I don't use systemd. As I understand it, genkernel-next shouldn't require systemd to work.

That's right. The regular, stable (and working) genkernel doesn't support Plymouth. Actually I'd rather use splashutils than Plymouth, but splashutils is broken and no one seems interested in fixing it. Dracut will build an initramfs, but when I boot, I don't get a splash screen; I get a black screen with three little squares in the center with question marks inside the squares during boot. I haven't tried using better-initramfs yet.

I'm using plymouth with vanilla kernel.  I've been using it for years and I can tell you, it's always an adventure to set up.  And every new upgrade is a toss up, will it work or not?  I see the latest upgrade which failed miserably for me months ago is no longer in the tree.

I've seen that 3 squares thing before, but don't recall what it was about.  Probably though a framebuffer thing I'm pretty sure.  Currently on nvidia here I use VESA vga framebuffer because I'm using an older kernel for other reasons.  Prior though I used the newer simplefb framebuffer and that worked also.

I can't comment on the systemd issue except to say it doesn't try to do that here.

Wish I had more to give you.

Well I do have this on my kernel command line: video=uvesafb:1440x900-32,mtrr:3, I forget the details how I came to that and don't know if something like that applies to you
