Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 466694
F10snap1 live CD appears to hang while checking medium
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:51:03 EST
Description of problem:
When selecting "Verify and boot" in the grub menu, a
white/bright-blue/dark-blue grows in text mode's last
line. Then finally the "Fedora 9.92" text on the right
turns white... and the system appears to hang while the
CD drive remains running.
OK, the system is actually doing the media verification,
but it needs to give at least *some* indication to that
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F10-Snap1 (whatever anaconda version that corresponds to)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F10-Snap1 Live CD
2. Select "Verify and boot" in grub menu
3. Wait until last text mode line has turned to white bar ending
in "Fedora 9.92"
4. Watch apparently hung system for 5 or 10 minutes
5. Be surprised that it was just doing the media verification
without telling you anything about that
System appears hung.
System reports it does media verification.
Easy reproduction of the issue:
$ qemu -m 512 -cdrom path/to/F10-Snap1-i686-Live.iso
Ping me if you need the ISO image without waiting a week for the torrent to finish.
Sounds like media check is being automatically run from an init script on the live cd and isn't playing well with plymouth. Reassigning to someone who hopefully has a better idea what's going on here than me.
Will fix hopefully in the next day or two
Fixed in git, will be in the next version of mkinitrd
