Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-08-29 16:49:26 EDT
Right now rc.sysinit quits plymouth if it needs to ask for a password.

Plymouth recently gained the ability to ask for a password with a custom prompt after the root filesystem is mounted.  rc.sysinit should do that instead.

See bug 460700 for some changes that will improve the quality of the prompt message. bug 459094 is the plymouth side of things.

I think something like the attached patch is what we want.

it'd be good if we could get this (or your udev hack?) in before the beta.
