Description drago01 2012-11-04 00:21:55 UTC
Description of problem:

When doing an offline system update (by clicking on the "apply updates & reboot" entry). The system reboots and applies the updates but does not show any progress indication while doing so.

This is quite dangerous because the user might think that the boot process hangs and hard power off the system, leaving it into an inconsistent state.

While this does not violate a specific criteria literally, we simply cannot ship like this hence I am marking this as a blocker.

This should be fixed in plymouth-0.8.8

OK but:


has been unpushed due to other regressions ... so we have to keep this open until we have a fixed build.

0.8.8-3 got pushed stable. Is that sufficient? Can we close this now?
