Description Tim Waugh 2009-10-06 07:29:54 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting an encrypted system that does not have KMS available, there is no text prompt for the encryption password.  The boot just stops with a blank screen.

Entering the password and pressing Return continues the boot, so if you know that's why it's paused it's OK.

the same here, with plymouth-0.8.0-0.2009.29.09.9.fc12.x86_64

if esc is pressed when there is blank screen waiting for passphrase, the passphrase prompt shows up

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2009-10-14 15:11:38 EDT
.12.fc12 did not fix this issue.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2009-10-14 16:06:28 EDT
Same here.  Updated the initrd with dracut, but no password prompt.
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2009-10-26 05:12:38 EDT
Oh, it works fine now.  The kernel update must have done something I didn't do when testing before.
Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-10-26 11:15:23 EDT
I don't think it's fixed.  Warren showed it to me still broken, and I've got a stream of dupes coming in daily that I plan to dupe to this report when I get to triaging them.
Comment 10 Michal Hlavinka 2009-10-26 11:32:04 EDT
It's fixed for me too
Comment 11 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-10-26 23:00:18 EDT
I spent some time trying to reproduce this today, as well, and was unsucessful.  I'm going to close this one out.  If anyone still sees this, please reopen.
