Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 485847
installing bootchartd/booting with 'init=/sbin/bootchartd' on systems with encrypted root kills boot
Last modified: 2010-12-15 07:51:15 EST
Description of problem:
Installing bootchartd (or adding 'init=/sbin/bootchartd' if already installed) causes "non-bootable" kernels.
Appears that boot is looking for '/sbin/bootchartd' before luksOpen/mount....
Never prompts for passphrase.....
[Suppose some could argue that bootchart-ing a system with encrypted root is a bit of a stretch.....]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
the culprit is plymouth_should_ignore_show_splash_calls()
quickfixed packages here:
Installed above packages and re-installed kernel.
why do you close it? it is not fixed!
Sorry, I got carried away....
Works for me. Just assumed it had made it into rawhide.
I just got bitten by it too ... and I can confirm that the updated plymouth package (and kernel reinstallation!) fixes the problem
Does the new rawhide package plymouth-0.6.0-3.fc11 include the bootchart fix?
The given fix doesn't appear to work with plymouth-0.7.0-0.2009.03.06. The patch applies, but the system doesn't boot/passphrase isn't prompted.

I retract my statement. It helps to rebuild the initrd so the rebuilt plymouth gets used :-)
Is this fix already in "plymouth.x86_64-0.7.0-0.2009.03.09.1.fc11"?
Do I need to pass "init=/sbin/bootchartd" or "init1=/sbin/bootchartd" as kernel command line to make bootchart work with my encrypted setup?
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 does not only occur when root is encrypted. I have an encrypted /private partition, and bootchart made my system nonbooting.
yep. same here on F12. yum remove bootchart && yum remove kernel && yum install kernel made it work again.
ehh. I can't change the version to F12, can I?

> yep. same here on F12.
please, could you provide exact reproducer steps for F12?
- I've just tried to do a stock install of F12 with encrypted disc, installed bootchart and booted successfully, after giving passphrase it said unlocked and I got to login ...
It works on F12 for me. The fancy graphical boot thing doesn't show up but I couldn't care less.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
hm, I don't like this being marked WONTFIX when it obviously works - I've just retested with F14
hope "CLOSED RAWHIDE" makes better sense :-)
