Description Peter Jones 2005-05-04 21:10:02 UTC
Description of problem:

On x86_64, the kernel wrongly adds "console=tty0" to the end of /proc/cmdline .

Although I doubt if it's even remotely sane to add this at all, it needs to at
least add it to the _beginning_ of the list -- otherwise, "init=/bin/bash" and
similar situations break, because the arguments after init= are passed on to the
init program.  It'll then exit because of bogus command line arguments, and
you'll get a panic.

wierd. I wonder why it adds it.
I'll have a poke around and see if I can find out why.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-06-27 23:22:52 UTC
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done
