Description of problem:
Right at the beginning of the boot there is a kernel panic (with 4.9.x kernels).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- not affected: kernel-4.8.16-300.fc25.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot System
2. Boot one of the named kernels above
There shouldn't be a kernel panic.
will add info soon...
- Acer Aspire V3 771G
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU
- /boot/ is located on subvilume root in btrfs in luks encrypted volume
I also use dracut-044-78.fc25.x86_64.
After running re generating the initramfs (`dracut -f`) this also happens with kernel-4.8.16-300.fc25.x86_64. So it looks to be a dracut problem...

The Kernel Panic Output
Fatal: no entropy gathering module detected
traps: init general protection ip:... in libc-2.24.so
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0b
This is a dracut issue, not an actual kernel issue. Do you have dracut-fips installed? If so, please remove and rebuild your initramfs
Thanks Laura for your response and pointing me in the right direction.
Uninstalling dracut-fips solved the problem.
So did I understand it correctly that I need hardware entropy generators for FIPS? So this isn't a bug at all because I think there is no such thing in my pc (accessing /dev/hwrng says "No such device" and there is no tpm)...
Is dracut-fips included in a standard installation or did I install it recently? :D
