Subject: sys-boot/plymouth could not work
Date: Tue, 3 Apr 2012 13:43:20 +0800 (CST)
Does anybody in the list have used plymouth.
I installed and configured plymouth as told.
my grub.conf is 

title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/kernel-3.2.1-gentoo-r2 root=/dev/sda10 video=radeon:1366x768 quiet splash                                 
initrd /boot/initramfs-3.2.1-gentoo-r2.img

While I rebooting my machine, it shows "[plymouth] could not create /run/plymouth" and there is no splash.
Then I created /run/plymouth directory in the initrd file system manually, but it seems that this doesn't change anything.
And then I created /run/plymouth in my root file system, while this time system shows
"plymouthd could not start boot splash: No such file or directory".

I checked my Ubuntu virtual machine, which plymouth works well, there is no /run/plymouth directory in initram file system or real root file system.

I googled this problem and found some guys had faced the same problem with me, but nobody have a solution.
This is my first time to ask for help in the list, and this is even my first time to use a mailing list.
Sorry for my poor English.
