Description Mike Kwong 2016-03-12 19:52:36 EST
Description of problem:
On boot to kernel-4.4.4-301.fc23.x86_64, graphical interface doesn't start. Instead we drop to the terminal interface, eventually the boot gets stuck on systemd-ask-password-plymouth and the boot does not proceed.

Dropping down to kernel-4.4.3-300.fc23.x86_64 works as normal.

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

How reproducible:
Always fails the same way

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up the machine and select kernel-4.4.4-301.fc23.x86_64

Actual results:
The machine boots up, drops to terminal with the boot messages. Eventually a message shows up referring to systemd-ask-password-plymouth and the boot does not proceed.

Expected results:
The machine boots up, Plymouth starts, and the dialog box for inputing the decryption password shows up.

Additional info:
The machine has an LUKS encrypted boot disk. The graphics card is an AMD Tonga 285.

Same issue on a DELL Inspiron laptop with AMD R7 M265 GPU and SSD disk without LUKS. Same workaround works (boot 4.4.3).

Kernel 4.5.0 also works (updated to F24 Alpha)
Comment 4 Mike Kwong 2016-03-19 17:31:14 EDT
Kernel 4.4.5 also works. Closing this since this now works in F23.
