Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453320
Booting into runlevel 3 leaves screen "in the black hole"
Last modified: 2008-08-12 14:21:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Like plymouth a lot. Good job!!
But, booting into runlevel 3 (by adding a 3 to the end of the grub prompt),
leaves the screen completely black.
Entering cntl-alt-F1 restored the familiar "login:" prompt.
Not sure what makes sense here: remaining in non-graphic mode for runlevel 3?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on machine.
2. Add "3" to grub boot prompt
We should probably just run plymouth on tty1 for now, at least until we
coordinate between plymouth and GDM's X better.
(at which point we'll need to handle "there won't be X" and either not vt switch
to 7 at all or vt switch to 1 on exit)
Ray says this should be fixed in current rawhide.
Please reopen if you still see it.
