Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 09:10:22 UTC
and with dracut-004-27 "console=tty" works?

Comment 2 Qian Cai 2010-07-30 09:20:54 UTC
Not sure, and I did found a workaround - console=tty0 is working.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 09:34:03 UTC
care to share your tricks? :)

Comment 4 Qian Cai 2010-07-30 09:37:11 UTC
changing "console=tty" to "console=tty0" cured the problem.

Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 09:54:35 UTC
NOTABUG?

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 09:56:37 UTC
