Description Joe Krahn 2001-12-13 15:30:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
Booting a machine with an ext3 fs containing errors,
you get prompted to press "Y" for an integrity check.
This prompt appears to grab the "I" pressed to activate the
interactive startup. (I think nteractive startup probably
still works if the "I" is pressed after ext3 init,
but I did not test this.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Kill power (or similar) on an ext3 system to get an unclean ext3 root fs
2. Reboot
3. Press 'I' when prompted, to try to start an interactive startup

Actual Results:  Startup goes non-interactive

Expected Results:  Ineteractive startup

Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of

This should be fixed on current releases - the prompt for fsck is no longer there.
