Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121715
RHGB switches to detailed mode when the init process starts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
The subject line says it all: rhgb starts in suppressed mode, then
switches to detailed mode when the init process starts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the machine with rhgb passed to the kernel
2. Watch rhgb start with details hidden
3. As init starts (for me, starting runlevel 5), rhgb switches to
Details are shown
Details should remain hidden
Note that no errors are encountered (as this otherwise brings rhgb
into detailed mode)
I also see this.
Was that on a really slow machine ?
I slightly modified how all this worked in rhgb-0.13.1 (being
pushed to rawhide) and made sure rhgb returned to non-detailed
view as soon as the initscripts are making progresses.
My machine is a 2.4Ghz celeron /w 512 Mb PC3200 RAM. Not really a
snail, nor a hare.
Are you seing the issue with fedora devel ?
I have FC2 here with packages updated from the base, updates-released,
and freshrpms channels only (not including the development channel).
I have seen this also - it has not happened for a while (FC2 with
updates), but previously the Details mode would open for no apparent
reason during bootup. IIRC it was during the "Starting networking"
phase that it would happen.
FC5 here. Bug still there (rhgb-0.16.3.1).
So what's going on is, rhgb will automatically go to detailed mode if a service
seems to be taking too long to start.
Note we no longer wait for gdm to start before exiting rhgb, so the original
problem should be fixed.
Any other problems that come up, probably need to be fixed by the individual
