Description Will Woods 2008-04-22 17:59:02 EDT
If you do a text-mode install with anaconda-184.108.40.206 (F9Preview), there's a nice '#' prompt on VT2. In graphical installs it's a root shell, but that says 'sh-3.2#'. Anyway. You can type something at the prompt and hit Enter, but nothing will happen. I'm not sure how to debug this further without actually having a shell.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-22 18:09:52 EDT
Pretty sure it was working for me earlier today with a rawhide install -- the difference in prompts is because in one case, you're getting minstg2.img and the busybox shell and in the other case, it's bash. What install method was this with?
Comment 2 Will Woods 2008-04-22 18:22:44 EDT
Figured it was busybox or something. This is with a minstg2.img preupgrade, using http:// as the fallback method.

*** Bug 443265 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-22 18:54:21 EDT
Reproduced. Although, ugh, going to be a pain to track down
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-29 17:15:20 EDT
Should be fixed (switched minstg2.img to just use bash and I've tested that bash is working in minstg2.img)
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-30 14:35:42 EDT
Will, can you test this with today's tree?
Comment 7 Will Woods 2008-04-30 16:23:17 EDT
No good - I'm still getting the plain '#' prompt, which probably indicates busybox instead of bash. And it doesn't work.
Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-30 21:41:30 EDT
This is because I'm a moron and didn't add the binary to the file list. Fixed
Comment 9 Will Woods 2008-05-01 11:25:57 EDT
Works fine with anaconda-220.127.116.11 (rawhide-20080501).
