Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456838
What should happen if you "touch /forcefsck" and reboot? (Seemed to freeze)
Last modified: 2008-08-14 15:50:02 EDT
Description of problem:
I made the mistake of not clearing the "rhgb" option the next time I rebooted
after touching /forcefsck.
The animation ran for a long, long time, but finally froze. No disk activity
Forced reboot (this time with no "rhgb") redid the fsck and completed to
runlevel 5 (and removed /forcefsck).
1. Bug here? Does plymouth not play well with fsck running?
2. What should the screen show in this case? Continued animation? Some other
progress indication? text?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Probably text for now.
We need to sprinkle some plymouth --hide-splash calls throughout rc.sysinit
this should be fixed in rawhide.
