How reproducible:
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 05:10:22 EDT
and with dracut-004-27 "console=tty" works?
Comment 2 CAI Qian 2010-07-30 05:20:54 EDT
Not sure, and I did found a workaround - console=tty0 is working.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 05:34:03 EDT
care to share your tricks? :)
Comment 4 CAI Qian 2010-07-30 05:37:11 EDT
changing "console=tty" to "console=tty0" cured the problem.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 05:54:35 EDT
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2010-07-30 05:56:37 EDT
does "console=console" work? :-)
