Description Deji Akingunola 2007-08-17 02:55:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Please re-enable the progress meter for force fsck. With the current set-up,
novice users might be tempted to just reboot the system thinking the boot-up
sequenced has hanged. In my case, auto fsck took well over 5mins to complete. (i
think rhgb should also fall back to the detail view when auto-fsck runs).

What does your /etc/sysconfig/init look like?

[deji@agape ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/init
# color => new RH6.0 bootup
# verbose => old-style bootup
# anything else => new style bootup without ANSI colors or positioning
BOOTUP=color
# Turn on graphical boot

RES_COL=60
# terminal sequence to move to that column. You could change this
# to something like "tput hpa ${RES_COL}" if your terminal supports it
MOVE_TO_COL="echo -en \\033[${RES_COL}G"
# terminal sequence to set color to a 'success' color (currently: green)
SETCOLOR_SUCCESS="echo -en \\033[0;32m"
# terminal sequence to set color to a 'failure' color (currently: red)
SETCOLOR_FAILURE="echo -en \\033[0;31m"
# terminal sequence to set color to a 'warning' color (currently: yellow)
SETCOLOR_WARNING="echo -en \\033[0;33m"
# terminal sequence to reset to the default color.
SETCOLOR_NORMAL="echo -en \\033[0;39m"
# default kernel loglevel on boot (syslog will reset this)
LOGLEVEL=3
# Set to anything other than 'no' to allow hotkey interactive startup...
PROMPT=yes
# Set to 'yes' to allow probing for devices with swap signatures
AUTOSWAP=no

With that configuration, you should already be seeing the progress bar.

Comment 4 Deji Akingunola 2007-09-05 04:43:41 UTC
Unfortunately, I'm not seeing the progress bar (coincidentally, I have to endure
another forced fsck booting up this session, today, with no progress bar).

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2007-09-05 04:48:38 UTC
If you run 'fsck -C <add other options as necessary>' by hand, do you see it?

(For the relevant code, see rc.sysinit line 488)

Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2011-12-13 20:43:56 UTC
This has moved to systemd; initscripts will no longer change in this area.
