Turn splash screen off and remove it from initrd on Fedora 20

Posted on Sat 23 August 2014 in Linux

To remove the splash screen on Fedora and boot up with details run:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme details

For me on Fedora 20 it did not work out of the box:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme details --rebuild-initrd

The new created initrd go the name initrd-3.15.6-200.img and not initramfs-3.15.6-200.fc20.x86_64.img which would be the correct name. Just replace the old initramfs file with our new created one and reboot. Now you should get the detail view while booting your machine.
