Jan 15th 2014: Updates & Graphical boot
A few new Chapeau packages were released last night which will be pulled in by an update to the chapeau-logos package.
The noteworthy changes are;
The chapeau-packages rpm is a new meta package that will pull in new Chapeau packages as they’re released. Chapeau is still in it’s beta phase and much of the branding and configuration customisation to the Fedora base is done at build time of the live Chapeau image. These changes would be overwritten if performing a distribution upgrade to rawhide or Fedora 21 with fedup or with a yum distro-sync.
These customisations are currently being properly packaged and tested and will be pulled in by updates to this meta package as they’re released.
Chapeau’s graphical boot is not enabled by default yet but the ‘chapeau’ plymouth theme is already included in the chapeau-logos packages.
Now this plymouth theme is also in its own package and this will pull in plymouth as a dependency.
If you want to enable this boot theme now all you need to do is update Chapeau and append rhgb to your default kernel parameters. To do this execute the following in a terminal.
sudo sed -i 's/^GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=\"/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=\"rhgb /g' /etc/default/grub
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
No ‘fix’ package will be released to amend these kernel parameters but I’m expecting to have the graphical boot theme enabled by default in the next interim release of Chapeau 20.
Hope you’re enjoying using Chapeau.
See you in the forums.
