Description Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2021-04-01 08:20:14 UTC
1. Please describe the problem:
Today I switched my laptop on, entered the passphrase into the graphical crypt prompt and.... it sat there with the spinning icon.
I managed to get to the text console and it showed the systemd saying it was waiting for the root and swap.

2. What is the Version-Release number of the kernel:

3. Did it work previously in Fedora? If so, what kernel version did the issue
   *first* appear?  Old kernels are available for download at :

5.11.11-300 it fails (twice out of 2 goes), I switched back to 5.11.10 and it's fine.

4. Can you reproduce this issue? If so, please provide the steps to reproduce
   the issue below:
Switch laptop on
Enter luks passphrase

5. Does this problem occur with the latest Rawhide kernel? To install the
   Rawhide kernel, run ``sudo dnf install fedora-repos-rawhide`` followed by
   ``sudo dnf update --enablerepo=rawhide kernel``:
Not sure yet.

6. Are you running any modules that not shipped with directly Fedora's kernel?:

7. Please attach the kernel logs. You can get the complete kernel log
   for a boot with ``journalctl --no-hostname -k > dmesg.txt``. If the
   issue occurred on a previous boot, use the journalctl ``-b`` flag.

It didn't get to unlock root so it didn't store the logs.

This is not kernel related, this is a dracut bug (don't rebuild your 5.11.10 initramfs).  I believe the fix is

Comment 3 David Sanz 2021-04-02 14:07:20 UTC
Same error here after upgrading from F33, using LVM for all partitions.

Using old boot line on grub from F33 works fine

Comment 4 Chris Murphy 2021-04-04 02:17:27 UTC
See also bug 1945596 and bug 1945901 and 1945950.

Comment 5 Chris Murphy 2021-04-04 04:28:47 UTC
OK never mind, as figured out in bug 1945596, this is the fix.

Fixed after applying that.

Complete instructions:

- Boot with any old kernel (for example, the one from F33 before upgrade)
- Edit file /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/35network-manager/nm-run.service with the new line specified on the commit
- Regenerate initramfs:  dracut -v --force --kver 5.11.10-300.fc34.x86_64 (check the correct kernel version on your system, it could be newer)
- reboot

Comment 7 Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2021-04-06 08:23:09 UTC
OK, given comments above; thanks all and duping to 1945596
