No USB driver in "recovery" mode
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:00:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to boot a system in "recovery" mode doesn't load the USB drivers. In
other words, if you have a USB keyboard, you're screwed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On a system with USB keyboard, try to boot a system in "recovery" mode,
Steps to Reproduce:
By recovery mode, do you mean init=/bin/bash, or single-user-mode? Or something else?
I mean the mode that is called either "emergency" or "recovery" (don't recall at
the moment.) It drops into a shell after mounting root.
Hm. Anything that starts a shell (whether it's fsck failure, or single user
mode), is well after we start udev. So any relevant hardware modules *should* be
loaded at that point.
Are any modules outside of what's on the initramfs loaded at all for you?
USB modules do not seem to be part of what is loaded on the initramfs.
Is udev running?
Should be fixed in rawhide mkinitrd.
