rescue mode: no shell on VT1 for empty rescue
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
If you select no partition to rescue, then rescue mode says it is giving you a
shell, but instead it does nothing on VT1. You have to know to type <alt>F2 and
use the shell on VT2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot: linux rescue
2. Select language, keyboard, no network, no partition to rescue.
"When finished please exit from the shell and your system will reboot." but no
shell prompt on VT1, and typing on VT1 does not echo, and VT1 does not respond.
On VT2 there is a shell, where "ps axl" shows anaconda in state "wait S+".
"top" reveals that no process is using CPU (anaconda, loader, two sh, two init,
Shell prompt on VT1.
Chris Lumens fixed it in rawhide.
Confirmed: works for me in anaconda-126.96.36.199-1.
