Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443700
shell on VT2 doesn't work in text-mode installs
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:25:57 EDT
If you do a text-mode install with anaconda-126.96.36.199 (F9Preview), there's a
nice '#' prompt on VT2. In graphical installs it's a root shell, but that says
Anyway. You can type something at the prompt and hit Enter, but nothing will happen.
I'm not sure how to debug this further without actually having a shell.
Pretty sure it was working for me earlier today with a rawhide install -- the
difference in prompts is because in one case, you're getting minstg2.img and the
busybox shell and in the other case, it's bash. What install method was this with?
Figured it was busybox or something. This is with a minstg2.img preupgrade,
using http:// as the fallback method.

Reproduced. Although, ugh, going to be a pain to track down
Should be fixed (switched minstg2.img to just use bash and I've tested that bash
is working in minstg2.img)
Will, can you test this with today's tree?
No good - I'm still getting the plain '#' prompt, which probably indicates
busybox instead of bash. And it doesn't work.
This is because I'm a moron and didn't add the binary to the file list. Fixed
Works fine with anaconda-188.8.131.52 (rawhide-20080501).
