Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439967
Messages past password prompt
Last modified: 2008-08-14 05:00:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the updates as of this date.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the system
2. get to the place where the password prompt for encrypted volumes should be
3. it is displayed, but the screen keeps scrolling.
3 additional messages are displayed.
hub 1-0:1.0: hub_suspend
usb usb1: bus auto-suspend
usb usb1: suspend_rh
that you can type the password right after the prompt instead of having this
confusing set of messages, which at first meant that I thought that the boot
hand hung. If you do type in the passwrd everything else works.
Not sure this is fixable without just nuking the kernel messages entirely.
Having quiet on in the final should "help", but mostly due to the fact that the
messages don't appear :)
As a comment and suggestion how about a couple of blank lines before the prompt.
That should at least make it stand out a little more and make it less
confusing if this occurs. It also would help make it stand out and be easier
to spot that user interaction is needed even if no other issues are in place.
This seems to be fixed in beta
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Tried this with the production release and it seems to be fixed there too.
Comment 3 would still be nice, but that is probably more of a RFE for version 10
or something. Seems to be to be time to close this one.
based on comment #4 and my personal experience with F9 encrypted block devices I'm closing this issue.
