Description Uttiya Chowdhury 2004-10-17 18:26:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
In case of unclean shutdown, during fsck during bootup, normally a
progress bar is shown with rotating /, -, | and \. This is not
happening. Reproducibility 100%.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown uncleanly (I have ext3 only)
2. During reboot, when it asks whether file systems should be checked,
select y.
3. You will note that filesystem check will start, but no progress
indication will be shown.

Actual Results:  No progress indication.

Expected Results:  Progress indication bar with increasing === bar and
rotating \, -, | and / with % done indication.

Are you using rhgb?

I have the same problem.  I am using rhgb, and when it gets to the point where
it recognizes that the machine was shutdown improperly, it switches to text mode
and asks whether to do a fsck.  When you answer yes, it just sits there -- no
output is produced (note, you are still in text mode).  Eventually it finishes
and goes along with the rest of the boot, switching to graphical mode.  Some
status is really needed here, otherwise, you think that the machine is hung.  An
fsck can take quite a while.

Seems to be a problem with rhgb.
Assigning to rhgb.

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.  This bug was
originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant
changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
