Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 529006
(plymouth w/o KMS) Encryption password prompt does not appear until ESC button
Last modified: 2009-10-14 11:38:35 EDT
Boot F12 on a system not capable of KMS (like kvm). The blue text progress bar appears for a split second, but the screen goes to black with a blinking cursor. Upon hitting ESC the user sees that they need to type the passphrase to unlock encrypted root.
