Made a fresh install of Fedora 22 with encrypted partitions. On startup i'm only presented a black screen. If i hit F2 the text prompt for the passphrase appears. Tried to rebuild initrd with:

# /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd
# reboot

No success,...

Tried to install a new theme:

# dnf install plymouth-theme-solar
# plymouth-set-default-theme solar --rebuild-initrd
# reboot

No success,...

Some other threads suggested dracut, so i've tried:

# dracut --force
# reboot

No success,... I am at my wits end, any help appreciated!

$ cat /etc/default/grub

To succeed in the new theme installation with my encrypted partitions, I added these lines in /etc/default/grub :

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT='quiet splash'
GRUB_GFXMODE=auto
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep

Then:

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg             => for Bios
sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg    => for EFI

The Arch documentation relates an issue between Plymouth and encryption :

Warning: If you use hard drive encryption with the encrypt hook, you must replace the encrypt hook with plymouth-encrypt in order to get to the TTY password prompts.

But didn't run into this case.

The issue between plymouth and encryption being mentioned in the Arch documentation was not relevant for me too.
