note: I have pressed 'ENTER' on the black screen and wait long time enough.

Comment 2 Yaacov Zamir 2021-05-26 06:33:40 UTC
We use a patternfly component: https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly-react/tree/master/packages/react-console
We only send this component a VMI resource, It looks like the bug is in PF - once a fix is found, it should be propagated to PF

Note II:
This but is in the same PF component as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1964789

Serial console loading

Comment 6 Phillip Bailey 2021-06-29 13:57:19 UTC
Guohua, please see the video I have attached. This is from a clean master branch. Did you hit enter after clicking in the console area? The console text won't show up until you do for some reason. I think that's something we should try to fix in a separate PR.

Comment 7 Guohua Ouyang 2021-06-30 02:52:44 UTC
It's fixed indeed, not sure why it didn't load yesterday.
Move the bug to verified.
