I did a fresh install of F28 (which I then promptly updated) on a Dell Precision M6700 laptop (old laptop, equipped with a Amd Fire Pro M6000 2Gb graphics card). I was finally happy to sport a open source supported card in my system but for some reason at every boot plymouth doesn't show itself but instead three dots appear. I even tried to remove it (by dnf) and reinstall it, rebooting, but still same behaviour.

Didn't have this happening on a Dell Latitude laptop of the same age with a Nvidia card.

Any chance I can fix it?

The laptop BIOS is the latest one (april 2018!) and there's no hybrid graphics or other settings to play with. The machine has 2 drives, system is installed in the one in the secondary compartment (/dev/sdb, a SSD), the other one in the primary compartment (/dev/sda, a HD) is just a big empty (just created) ext4 partition.

Thanks :)
