Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 493035
time spent waiting for password contributes to progress bar
Last modified: 2009-07-01 07:33:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I have my root filesystem encrypted. Plymouth asks for the password early in the boot process. When I enter the password quickly, the progress bar starts correctly near the left side of the screen and grows to the right. If however I take my time to enter the password, the progress bar is already very long when it reappears.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an encrypted root filesystem. Start booting.
2. Go make tea. Or coffee. Or love.
3. Return and notice plymouth's password prompt.
4. Enter the password.
The progress bar reappears and it covers almost the whole width of the screen already. That's because the time you spent at step 2 has been accounted as boot progress.
The progress bar should reappear and be still very short, because we're not really that far in the boot process. Time spent waiting for user input should not be accounted as progress.
That one is my fault. I made the pausing optional but made the default to not pause. Reversed to pause by default and pushed to the upstream git.
When not paused it reaches the next event it expects and turns to crawl speed which takes like 3 minutes to complete so I forgot about this and didn't notice (especially as all the activities you state in step 2 take less than 3 minutes).
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:
That one seems to be fixed in rawhide x86_64. The progress bar acts as it should after 2 minutes coffee break.
Is it fixed for you too?

Looks fixed in plymouth-0.7.0-0.2009.05.15.1.fc11.x86_64 too. Thanks.
