Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469168
unable to complete boot on kernel-184.108.40.206-58.fc10.x86_64 and beyond
Last modified: 2008-10-30 23:58:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Ever since the upgrade to -58 and beyond my machine fails to boot correctly. Plymouth will come up and the progressbar will reach the end but it will never ask for the password to my encrypted partition.
It works with -52 but not beyond (testing up till -68)
This is using x86_64, da_DK.UTF-8 locale, and an ATI card (R6X0 on AGP) with encrypted LVM. Plymouth invoke with vesafb (0x346)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to -52+ kernel
no unlock dialog, endless plymouth bootsplash
smooth boot as with -52
Airlie set on CC.
Me too. I have a Dell C620 laptop with an encrypted root running an x86_64 kernel. Nvidia card and US locale.
The bootsplash comes up and shows progress, but never prompts for the volume password. Interestingly, in previous kernel if I hit enter in the bootsplash it would drop to text and show me the service loading status lines. From -58 on I cannot escape out of the bootsplash.
I have the same issue on both a Dell XPS 400 and IBM x60 both experience the same issue as described although I am running a 32bit kernel. On the IBM I was able to boot to 4-51 kernel successfully. On the Dell I can boot to an earlier kernel although I can't get into X.
Getting rid of rhgb and quiet from the 220.127.116.11-58 kernel I get the following;
Loading i2c-core module
Loading i2c-algo-bit module
Loading drm module
Loading radeon module

Mount failed for selinuxfs on /selinux: No such file or directory
Switching to new root and running init.

Booting has failed.
That's it! Not sure why it's not locating the vg as I can boot successfully to a prior kernels specifically 3-39
