Description Miroslav Suchý 2010-06-01 08:18:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When I hit Esc during boot to see which service starts etc. I see only "Starting udev" and nothing more. No progress. When I hit Esc again I got back to ring theme of plymouth, but the rings are stuck. Nearly they move very very slow. I wait several minutes and saw no progress. If I hit Esc again, then "starting udev" message is duplicated, but nothing more.
If I do not touch Esc during boot, then system will boot up as usual. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa |grep plymou
# rpm -q kernel

How reproducible:
I done it twice in row.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. hit Esc - I usually done it when the inner ring was in position 3 o'clock
Actual results:
no messages from startup is seen
when return back to plymouth the rings move very very slow

Expected results:
I see which services are starting.
after second Esc I see plymouth theme with normal progress.

You're seeing two separate bugs here:

1) system not booting: bug 515413
2) Weird rendering artifact bug 598448

Marking this as a duplicate of the first one, since it's the most severe
