Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100894
confirm and graphical boot together cause problems
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:37:39 EDT
Description of problem:
If you have GRAHPICAL boot enabled and boot into runlevel 5 with "confirm" on
the commandline, the boot hangs once the graphical boot starts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
9.0.93, initscripts 7.28-1
always, I assume...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. with GRAHPICAL=yes in /etc/sysconfig/init, boot into runlevel 5 appending
"confirm" to kernel comandline
Graphical boot starts and then fails to make progress.
I would expect "confirm" to automatically apply "nogui". It seems to me that
this would be an easy fix. I think this is better than disregarding confirm
since a commandline argument should always take precedence over a configuration
file, and I think it's silly to have to type both confirm and nogui.
I had already added DontZap to my XF86Config file, so I don't know whether
CTRL-ALT-Backspace would have shut down the X server that was showing the
graphical bootup status since I know it wouldn't work for my configuration.
Will be fixed in initscripts-7.41-1, in combination with rhgb-0.11 or later.
