Photo of screen hanging on boot...... This is just about where passphase would be requested.....
Description of problem:
Booting kernel-2.6.29-0.38.rc1.git4.fc11.x86_64 hangs.
If booting with plymouth, it fails to prompt for password to unlock encrypted partitions, and eventually hangs.
If booting without plymouth (e.g., without "rhgb quiet"), it appears to hang just after probing for keyboard, and just about when it would prompt for passphrase.
I attach "photo" of screen when it hangs.
kernel-2.6.29-0.35.rc1.git4.fc11.x86_64 continues to boot just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time. (Every install and every time)
Steps to Reproduce:
One addition detail: ctrl-alt-delete does cause reboot. Get 2 or 3 messages about shutting down.
Same here. I have no encrypted partitions.
Should have added system detail:
Thinkpad X200, fully rawhide.
My system boots OK with kernel-2.6.29-0.40.rc1.git6.fc11.x86_64, encrypted partitions and all.....
Both kernel-2.6.29-0.40.rc1.git6.fc11.x86_64 and kernel-2.6.29-0.41.rc2.fc11.x86_64 boot fine on my system.
I'm guessing that was just a "DOA" build (at least for my system).
Jerry, reopen if your system still doesn't boot.
