plymouth animation freezes during shutdown
plymouth animation during shutdown freezes. the system would shutdown without
Steps to reproduce:
with plymouth installed and lightdm-plymouth/sddm-plymouth.service enabled,
after pressing restart or shutdown button, plymouth animation appears
normally then the screen would turn off and then it turn on again, this
time it shows a frozen plymouth animation. after about 5sec the system
would shutdown/restart normally.
plymouth animation will work during shutdown and won't freeze.

I use a xorg.conf for my intel GPU. thought it might help reproducing the bug.
I can also reproduce the same behaviour, here are my system specifications:
Build Date & Hardware
- Kernel: 5.11.10-zen1-1-zen (but can also reproduce on `linux` 5.11.10.arch1-1)
- CPU: Intel i7-7500U
- GPU: Intel HD Graphics 620 (+ nvidia 940mx, but I don't use it)
- Video Drivers: Intel modesetting driver (+ I deactivated nouveau)
- WM: dwm
- plymouth version: 0.9.5-6 from official Arch repos
I didn't customize any xorg settings for the intel video drivers.
I also have this same issue on my system. When I hit shutdown, the aniamtioj plays, then screen goes black, then turns back on and shows frozen animation, then finally shuts down.
Here is my system -
Kernel - 5.11.14.arch1-1
CPU - Intel Core i5-1035G1
GPU - Intel UHD G1 Graphics, modesetting driver
DE - KDE Plasma 5.21.4
Plymouth - plymouth AUR package (non-git)
I can also confirm that the issue is only present from 5.11.x. The issue does not exist with kernel 5.10.16.
Shutdown / restart:
Computer hangs on shutdown or restart and shows the following symptoms:
Watchdog error message and then takes up to 15 minutes to shut down / restart
Computer shuts down with black screens (both monitors are switched off). But then alternately activates one of the two monitors (one remains switched off and the other is switched on).
Occasionally only one of the two monitors is activated when the system is started. Or, both monitors are activated. But the attitudes regarding the position are no longer correct. Or: Mirror mode has been activated.

Installing plymouth built from git, resolves the issue!
That is no solution.
The same error occurs on Ubuntu Studio with playmouth.
Only Sparky Linux, with Kernel 4.9, runs without any problems.
This is a problem with the 5.x kernel.
I've already reported a bug for this.
I still don't understand, is it a kernel or plymouth issue? If it's a kernel issue, which version fixes it?
> Installing plymouth built from git, resolves the issue!
What version it was?
I tried plymouth_0.9.5git20210323-0ubuntu1_amd64 without any change.
With Linux 5.13.0-11-generic #11-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 29 06:57:28 UTC 2021 no change.
The problem introduced with Kernel 5.10
But then I installed the git build of plymouth and it was gone! So I assume the problem brought up by changes in kernel, and plymouth patched their app to resolve the issue.
Your git build seems fairly outdated. Could you build directly from git and test again?
The problem was not introduced with 5.10, 5.10 always worked fine. The problem appeared with kernel 5.11.
The plymouth git works (Ubuntu 21.10).
