Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16295
can not fix drives with to many errors to autofix
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:15:52 EDT
On boot if a drive has to many errors to fix, you are prompted for
root password to fix drive or Ctrl-D for regular boot.
If you enter root passwd the system reboots as if you had entered
CTRL-D. Resulting in still having a drive with to many errors, and
the same prompt with no way to fix. Slackware rescue disk scores
fixed in the bash package currently in rawhide.
