Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 527426
(plymouth) No text prompt for encryption password (but keyboard input is accepted)
Last modified: 2009-10-26 23:00:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting an encrypted system that does not have KMS available, there is no text prompt for the encryption password. The boot just stops with a blank screen.
Entering the password and pressing Return continues the boot, so if you know that's why it's paused it's OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the same here, with plymouth-0.8.0-0.2009.29.09.9.fc12.x86_64
if esc is pressed when there is blank screen waiting for passphrase, the passphrase prompt shows up

A fix for this is building into koji now:

.12.fc12 did not fix this issue.
Same here. Updated the initrd with dracut, but no password prompt.
Oh, it works fine now. The kernel update must have done something I didn't do when testing before.
I don't think it's fixed. Warren showed it to me still broken, and I've got a stream of dupes coming in daily that I plan to dupe to this report when I get to triaging them.
It's fixed for me too
I spent some time trying to reproduce this today, as well, and was unsucessful. I'm going to close this one out. If anyone still sees this, please reopen.
