How do I check if plymouthd is running when I don't see the boot messages
and boot.log is empty?

# ps ax | grep plymouth
  105 ?        S      0:02 /bin/plymouthd --attach-to-session

# ps axZ | grep plymouth
system_u:system_r:kernel_t:s0 105 ? S 0:02 /bin/ plymouthd --attach-to-session

# ls -lZ /var/log/boot.log
-rw-r--r--. root root system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0   boot.log


Are all the other log files in /var/log working fine ? Your rsyslog.conf should have a line like this:

# grep local7 /etc/rsyslog.conf
local7.* /var/log/ boot.log
