Description Steve Grubb 2010-05-10 16:40:01 UTC
Description of problem:
When RHEL6 beta is installed using the minimal install option, the keyboard arrows/tab do not display correctly. For example, if I type "chk" and then hit tab, the cursor jumps to the right about 8 spaces and I do not see any tab completion.

Hitting up arrow should show me the history, but all I see is ^[[A  the down arrow gives me ^[[B.

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-10 18:23:33 UTC
This is fallout from a problem in the patch in bug 582265

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-10 18:26:44 UTC
Note this bug also causes usernames to show up hidden and passwords to show up visible on tty1 when logging in.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-10 18:36:30 UTC
This was actually fixed in plymouth-0.8.3-1.el6.  After installing it, make sure to rebuild your initrd by installing a kernel or running /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd

Comment 6 Steve Grubb 2010-05-10 20:11:58 UTC
Installing 0.8.3 is confirmed as fixing both login password being displayed as well as the tab completion.

Comment 8 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-14 14:01:52 UTC
Something is funny here.  I'm going to need to do another build.

Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-14 14:31:19 UTC
Should be fixed in plymouth-0.8.3-2.el6

I think what happened was:

1) At some point I added the patch to the source tree and did a local build and verified it.
2) I then got distracted by some other issue and forgot about it
3) Then this bug came along I went to my cvs checkout and saw the patch was already applied, wrote comment 5 and moved to MODIFIED, not realizing it wasn't built in brew yet.

What I don't understand is how plymouth-0.8.3-1.el6 fixes the problem for those hit by it.

Anyway, we definitely need the patch, so I've built -2 now.

Sorry for the confusion and mistakes.

Tested and Verified after clean minimal install on plymouth-0.8.3-17.el6.x86_64, moving to VERIFIED.
