Description wintonian 2015-08-12 17:00:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When upgrading Fedora using 'fedup' and if using LUKS to encrypt disk drives as well as a wireless Logitech keyboard, the user cannot enter a password to unlock them due to missing 'hid-logitech-dj' driver.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start upgrade using 'fedup' and reboot,
2. wait for LUKS password prompt to appear and attempt to enter password using a Logitech wireless keyboard,
3. Attempts to enter characters results in no output,

Actual results:
Nothing happens - there is no output.

Expected results:
Characters to appear on screen as typed but masked by dots.

Additional info:
This is caused by 'hid-logitech-dj' missing from '/usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/90kernel-modules/module-setup.sh'

This has been fixed (dracut-041-14) for new/ existing installs for Fedora in F22 & F21 see bug #1229650 & bug #1232318, but not upgrades using 'fedup'.

However the bug still persists if using 'fedup' to upgrade to F22, I presume due to an older version of drcaut being used for the upgrade?

The workaround is to use wired or non-Logitech wireless keyboard to enter the password. After the install has compleated the installed version will work as patched in bug #1229650.
