no prompt for password to encrypted disk - boot sequence hangs
Last modified: 2012-10-29 11:00:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Boot hangs on system with encrypted disk.
I didn't see a prompt ... sometimes its hard to see because its not always the last message on the screen .. but entering the password like normal had no effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
System hung during boot sequence, at roughly the point where it should be asking for the password for the encrypted file system.
Normal boot of system with encrypted file system
kernel-3.6.1-1.fc18.x86_64 works OK
I don't see anything in 3.6.2 that would lead to this, it is possible that your initramfs got mangled in creation? Does installing 3.6.3 currently in updates-testing fix this for you?
Before I reboot.... isn't kernel-3.6.3-3.fc18 the one with the reported EXT4 FS corruption problem?
FS corruption problem sounds rare, so I took the risk and rebooted...
Prompt for FS encrytion passwd is OK with kernel-3.6.3-3.fc18.x86_64
You can close this. Thanks,
