Description Tom London 2008-06-29 12:57:54 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):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on machine.
2. Add "3" to grub boot prompt
Actual results:

Expected results:

We should probably just run plymouth on tty1 for now, at least until we
coordinate between plymouth and GDM's X better.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-06-30 14:26:13 EDT
(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.
