Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 904228
Horrifically bad UI/messages when user doesn't enter password for encrypted root in time
Last modified: 2013-01-25 16:04:22 EST
Description of problem:
If you have an encrypted root and reboot your machine, it used to stop at the prompt for password box ... now this dialog goes away after a set amount of time and systemd prints a message that looks a _lot_ like your drive/installation is completely broken and needs rescuing/reinstalling.
There is also no way out of this (that I could see) other than to hard powercycle the machine.
This is a known and well documented issue.
