Description H. Peter Anvin 2014-03-10 16:04:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Since upgrading to Fedora 20, dracut sometimes fails to set up all LUKS volumes.  Pressing <Esc> shows it sitting in a loop doing "Crypto setup for <volume>", where <volume> is the same number for every iteration.

The end result is that a boot takes a long time, or even fails (maybe ~20% of the time?).  Oddly enough sometimes (~25% of the time) it works fine without problems or undue delays (which is why this isn't a complete disaster.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
MOST boots have excessive delays.
SOME boots fail.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a system with multiple LUKS volumes
2. It might be relevant that this is an F19 system upgraded to F20?

Actual results:

Expected results:
