Description Menanteau Guy 2018-09-03 15:10:22 UTC
Panel to enter encryption passphrase after reboot is fuzzy or not displayed after installing a f29 workstation on ppc64le. Unable to enter a passphase and to boot.

A fuzzy panel could be displayed (not sure is the expected one) but it is not possible to enter the passphrase even if you try to enter it in a blind maner, everything seems stuck even on the console.

I tested it in english but it occurs in any languages, see openqa tests:
https://openqa.stg.fedoraproject.org/tests/350057
https://openqa.stg.fedoraproject.org/tests/350083
https://openqa.stg.fedoraproject.org/tests/350071

Notes that installing a server iso that boot in mode text works fine (we can enter the passphrase normally in text mode).
Also a workstation not encrypted boots fine too.

repo used to choose fedora workstation:
https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/latest-Fedora-29/compose/Everything/ppc64le/os/
At anaconda install, repo is specified in "installation souce" panel and "fedora worksation" is choosen in "software selection" panel.

I wonder if this is Workstation related or it would exist also with encrypted disk in Server or Everything.

Comment 2 Menanteau Guy 2018-09-27 14:21:14 UTC
Workstation ppc64le is not available, the problem appears when the VM is installed with Everything. With server is ok (no graphics).
see "chapter 4" in my description above.

Is this still an issue?

What happens when nomodeset is added to the kernel commandline?
