Spinfinity falls back to terminal with timeout assertion
Last modified: 2008-10-31 08:23:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Spinfinity falls back to terminal with timeout assertion.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot Fedora Rawhide with Plymouth enabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Plymouth
2. Boot Fedora
Plymouth falls back to terminal with error message:
plymouthd: ply-event-loop.c:875: ply_event_loop_watch_for_timeout: Assertion 'seconds > 0.0' failed.
Plymouth boots without falling back to text mode.
what version of plymouth?
I can't find any place in the code where watch_for_timeout would have seconds <= 0.0.
Maybe you have a stale version of plymouth in your initrd?
if you run
/sbin/mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
does the problem go away?
I'm going to go ahead and close this out because I think you may have had a stale version of plymouth in your initrd.
If you see this again, please reopen.
ok. Sorry for not responding but I'm not able to boot to this testing virtual machine - problems with VBox. If I see it again, I'll repopen it. Thanks.
