how to enable Graphical boot in Fedora 11 ?


Hi !

I do a fresh install of Fedora 11.
I am not getting the graphical boot, just a progress bar on botton and then, the graphical login screen (GDM).

How to enable the graphical boot (Plymouth) ?
The boot line already has "rhgb" on it:
Code:
ro root=/dev/mapper/vg-lv_root rhgb quiet
On F10, the command "plymouth-set-default-theme charge" used to work, but not in F11. (in fact were plymouth-set-default-plugin but it was deprecated by plymouth-set-default-theme)

I have several plymouth related packages installed by default
Code:
plymouth-theme-charge-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-plugin-label-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-theme-spinfinity-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-system-theme-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-plugin-fade-throbber-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-utils-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-libs-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-scripts-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-plugin-two-step-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-gdm-hooks-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
plymouth-plugin-throbgress-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64
What I am missing ?

Hi amani !

Thanks, but that doesn't work (at least for me).
I still have a progress bar at boot time.
Anyone else is having problem with the graphical boot ?
