Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-16 14:56:40 EDT
what version of plymouth?
Comment 2 Jaroslav Reznik 2008-10-17 04:35:46 EDT
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-23 10:41:55 EDT
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?
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-30 17:56:37 EDT

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.
Comment 5 Jaroslav Reznik 2008-10-31 08:23:22 EDT
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.
