luks: Mis-entering password three times == crash + trace
Last modified: 2010-01-12 10:31:27 EST
At the luks password prompt, enter a nonsense password three times.
After the third time Fedora will try to boot giving a "No such device or address" error and a nash trace.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is a mass edit of all mkinitrd bugs.
Thanks for taking the time to file this bug report (and/or commenting on it).
As you may have heard in Fedora 12 mkinitrd has been replaced by dracut. In Fedora 12 the mkinitrd package is still around as some programs depend on
certain libraries it provides, but mkinitrd itself is no longer used.
In Fedora 13 mkinitrd will be removed completely. This means that all work
on initrd has stopped.
Rather then keeping mkinitrd bugs open and giving false hope they might get fixed we are mass closing them, so as to clearly communicate that no more work will be done on mkinitrd. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you are using Fedora 11 and are experiencing a mkinitrd bug you cannot work around, please upgrade to Fedora 12. If you experience problems with the initrd in Fedora 12, please file a bug against dracut.
