ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5176
black screen on reboot with kernel without -devel

1) Set up kernel-desktop (not nrj), -devel package don't set
2) load with new kernel
plymouth fail (timeout ?)
daemon wait plymouth on black screen many-many times...
dkms compilation fail plymouth.
But if the process successful (two reboot) - it's no fatal, if sources is not setup - dkms compilation error fail plymouth complete.
As long as we support DKMS to build external kernel modules, -devel packages for the kernel must always be installed. So, most of the time, this is not a problem.
The real issues are in the dependencies of the services and the time intervals they are allowed to run. Someone needs to check and correct that.
http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=4811 may be caused by a similar issue.
The recent updates of the kernel and dkms have significantly reduced the chance of this problem to happen. This is the most we can do at this point.
