Cannot reboot directly from rescue prompt
Last modified: 2015-08-25 18:19:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot reboot from fedora rescue prompt
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Instead of booting fedora directly, boot to the rescue prompt
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to rescue prompt
2. Do not login
3. Observe that you cannot reboot
Cannot reboot without logging in/hard resetting the machine.
Should have some way of rebooting without logging in.
If the login here fails for some reason...you're pretty much screwed. That's why it would be good to be able to reboot from this prompt.
grub2 isn't involved with rescue, other than presenting the boot option. rescue is booting the installed system, just using a different kernel and initrd. It wouldn't be safe to let just anyone reboot the system so I don't think there is much we can do here.
