Description charles_fisher 2001-02-24 00:32:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686)

Booting with new kernel pauses at "Real Time Clock Driver v1.09"; must
press key to continue

System is a 133mhz Gateway Pentium running the new 2.2.17-14 kernel. The
next kernel message, "Toshiba System Managment Mode driver v1.7 22/6/2000,"
will not appear until I press a key. Perhaps /dev/random needs entropy?
This is wierd.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot the system.
2. Look at the monitor.
3. Press a key.

Actual Results:  System booted normally.

Expected Results:  If the system loses power, it would be best if it would
boot unattended.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
