I am attempting to work around this problem:
on the hypothesis that the problem is a race condition between the boot sequence and '/' and my raid0 disks being available [I don't know that it is, but would like to see if that the case.]
I read this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth, and have: * played with plymouth-x11 [very nice] * installed plymouth-theme-script
I would like to do something like this in my boot process, so Plymouth waits for the user's input before continuing:
Show the splash screen
sudo plymouth show-splash
Stop the graphical progress indicator
sudo plymouth pause-progress
Display a message
sudo plymouth message --text="pausing boot - press 'c' or space bar to continue"
Wait for the user to type either 'c', 'C' or space (no return required)
sudo plymouth watch-keystroke --keys="cC " --command="tee /tmp/c_key_pressed"
Change the on-screen message
sudo plymouth message --text="resuming boot"
Resume the graphical progress indicator
sudo plymouth unpause-progress
But I don't really know how to proceed safely.
I'm an IDOIT, so would appreciate an IDIOT-proof guide
Thanks in advance
