Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 590472
slow booting without rhgb option
Last modified: 2010-12-03 09:53:31 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Setting up the kernel option without rhgb.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. delete the option rhgb from /etc/grub.conf kernel line
It takes 30s to 5 minutes to the start Fedora.
Booting without rhgb (see the services strating) should be fast as it was before eg (kernel-184.108.40.206-105.fc12.x86_64).
I didn't try to add the rhgb option to kernel-220.127.116.11-114.fc12.x86_64 but it had the same symptoms.
You can use plymouth-set-default-theme to change the theme to "details" if you want to see the services starting.
No, it doesn't work. Setting up plymouth-set-default-theme to default has no influence to showing the services start. I tried with both kernel options "kernel /vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-115.fc12.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/fedora-system quiet" and "kernel /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-115.fc12.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/fedora-system rhgb quiet". If there is quiet option the system just waits with black screen (if you switch by typing Esc to the "blue bubble loading" you can see, how it is fill up - but this all is before the kernel boot ends.) If there is a quiet option the kernel waits between "firewire_core: created device fw0: GUID cff45a84fffcf2fe, S400" and "dracut: Scanning devices sda2 for LVM volume groups" (or sometimes other random stage). It sometimes works fine (kernel boots quick).

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
