Description Dave Hansen 2003-03-22 05:15:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT) Description of problem: This is an IBM x440. It has an integrated Service Processor which allows a user to view the text console remotely, and interact with it to do things like enter the BIOS. If this redirection is enabled, the GRUB prompt never appears, and the machine hangs. If the Redhat-specific "splashimage=" line is removed from grub.conf, it functions like expected. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): grub-0.92-7 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. have "splashimage=" in your grub.conf 2. get into the Service Processor 3. reboot 4. wait for SCSI BIOS, etc to go by 5. machine freezes Actual Results: the machine is hung and must be power-cycled Expected Results: the grub prompt should appear Additional info:

This is because the direct vga16 access used for the grub graphics is not handled by the console redirection.
Comment 2 Dave Hansen 2003-03-22 06:04:02 UTC
Would this be prudent to add to the release notes? The x440 is listed as RH certified hardware.
