Description Bruce Schuck 2004-09-12 01:43:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Gecko/20040804 Netscape/7.2 (ax)

Description of problem:
Installed Fedora FC2, chose custom installation and not workstation or
server.  On reboot (or boot from a powered off state), the console
will go blank after the choice for interactive startup is shown.  

Log in using ssh from another computer and firstboot is hung:

[root@sponge log]#  ps -ef | grep firstboot
root      2240  1356  0 15:13 ?        00:00:00 /bin/bash
/etc/rc5.d/S95firstboot start
root      2247  2240  0 15:13 ?        00:00:00 /bin/sh
root      2248  2247  0 15:13 ?        00:00:15 /usr/bin/python2
root      2353  2272  0 15:40 pts/1    00:00:00 grep firstboot

/var/log/messages is attached.

Is the system trying to use the parallel port for a console?

From /var/log/messages:
