Description Tom London 2008-07-27 20:57:28 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).

Two questions:

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?

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-07-28 16:07:18 EDT
Probably text for now.

We need to sprinkle some plymouth --hide-splash calls throughout rc.sysinit
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-08-14 15:50:02 EDT
this should be fixed in rawhide.
