Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 107121
rhgb doesn't display fsck output
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
Description of problem:
After every N boots, fsck.ext3 gets run at startup. In this case rhgb doesn't
give any indication of what is going on on either the undetailed or detailed
screens. Since running fsck is rather time-consuming these days, some kind
of visual feedback for this would be very nice to have.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I was just about to report this as well.
It's rather nasty cause the machine appears hung, no feed back
on anything(except HD flashlight is on). rhgb just shows nothing,
and after a couple of reboots I realized switching (ctrl+alt+f1) might
help, and there it was, doing a fsck..
Unfortunately (bug 131899) Ctrl-Alt-F1 doesn't work any more.
Ctrl-Alt-F1 should be fixed on rhgb-0.13.1-1
it also should fix this issue assuming the patch from #132665
is also applied. In which case the fsck progresses and results
are shown in the rhgb detailed view.
Anyway rhgb-0.13.1-1 is being pushed to rawhide and should fix this
