Description Jan Pazdziora 2019-07-15 07:47:34 UTC
Description of problem:

When booting RHEL 8.0 VM with virt-install, I see

  console=ttyS0 console=ttyS0,115200n8

in the grub entry.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get rhel-8.0-update-1-x86_64-kvm.qcow2 from https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/479/ver=/rhel---8/8.0/x86_64/product-software.
2. Run the VM virt-install --connect qemu:///system --name rhel-8 --import --disk rhel-8.0-update-1-x86_64-kvm.qcow2 --network network=example.test --os-variant rhel8.0
3. Press 'e' on the prompt to display the first RHEL entry in grub.

Actual results:

  set gfx_payload=keep
  insmod gzio
  linux ($root)/boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-80.4.2.el8_0.x86_64 root=UUID=9c3d4ce1-341c-\
  401d-8f8f-8e9c13c00f40 ro console=ttyS0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 no_timer_check \
  net.ifnames=0 crashkernel=auto
  initrd  ($root)/boot/initramfs-4.18.0-80.4.2.el8_0.x86_64.img $tuned_initrd

Expected results:

The double console entry is confusing and probably shouldn't be there.

Hi Jon,
Is it possible you let someone from the RCM team review that change?
