I have recently installed Parabola on my second hard drive. I have managed to get everything set up and running well except one problem. After selecting Parabola in the Pureboot menu, it proceeds to start the kernel, but doesn’t display a prompt for the LUKS password. The last thing I see is kexec_core: Starting new kernel.
I can still enter my LUKS password, and it will boot as normal to the desktop environment, but I cannot see the prompt.
If Parabola has any trouble booting, for example a systemd service that failed, Then it displays the previously completed password prompt, and the error message for the systemd service.
I am not sure if this is a Pureboot, or a Parabola problem…
Is there anyway to see this prompt originally without having to install something from the AUR such as Plymouth? I don’t want a fancy bootloader, just a text prompt would be fine.
I have tried playing around with mkinitcpio hooks and kernel parameter, both don’t seem to fix the problem.
A little information about how my system is set up:
Pureboot with HEADS to boot
Shared unencrypted /boot partition using grub on the main drive.
LUKS encrypted partition on main drive for PureOS.
LUKS encrypted partition on secondary drive for Parabola
