After installing latest kernel from repo (4.1.7), dracut-init repeatedly comes up with seg fault message and boot does not continue. Console floods with this message, with it coming up approximately once every few seconds.
Rebooting and selecting 4.1.6 kernel works, so filing it under kernel.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up with 4.1.7-200 kernel
System repeatedly displays seg fault message.
Please attach a photo of the screen with the message. Also please verify that the initramfs file for this kernel in /boot is of similar size to the other initramfs files.
I removed the offending kernel, but will try reinstalling at will provide if it reoccurrs.
So far, apart from the normal nouveau flood, the dracut-init seg faul hasn't appeared, so perhaps regenerating the initramfs files as part of the reinstall fixed. Will keep this open for now and will post if I see the error again.
Closing as no longer appearing.
