Startpar: Service(s) returned failure: plymouth ... failed

Postby jr121705 on Wed Oct 16, 2013 3:00 pm

I get this message when my computer is shutting down. I have looked all over the internet and can not figure out what is going on. My computer seems to be working fine, but wondering if this failure is a symptom of a problem that I don't realize.

I haven't got a response yet and wondering if anyone has any answers. I have done a lot of searching and cannot find an answer. Still having the error message show up when I shut the computer down, but my computer seems to be running fine as far as I can tell. So, anyone have an idea what is going on?

So is there really no answer here? I am surprised that over 400 people have viewed this post but no responses. Can someone at least point me in the right direction to find the answer?

Only input I can give is that I see the same message when shutting down my machine. Did some googling but did not come up with a solution.

Since as you pointed out, too, there seems not really to be any issue with this as far as running the computer is concerned, I stopped worrying about it and just ignore it.
At least, you are not alone if that is any consolidation :)

Riko,

Thanks for your response, its good to know I am not the only one. I am still a little new to Linux so I am not always sure what is going on. Maybe this will be fixed with a future update. I think that I am going to post this as a bug report and see what happens.

Hi JRT,

I'm getting the same message.

Plymouth is a graphical boot manager. It's a pretty picture/animation that appears while all the normal boot up processes are taking place. It doesn't seem to affect the operation of my system, and I don't think it should affect yours.

Same error here, but it seems no one is going to fix it, as the bug report has been flagged as "invalid".

Since the startpar/plymouth error results in a delay when shutting down the system, I've had to comment out all the logic between lines 73 and 106 in /etc/init.d/sendsigs

HTH.
