Arrow Cannot get into Interactive Mode on RHEL-Itanium


HW: Itanium
SW: RH Enterprise

I don't seem to be able to go into 'interactive Mode' (by pressing the I-button) when the system starts it's daemons. I DO see the prompt, but don't seem to get enough time to enter the I, after which the system simply carries on...

You can hit the key before the prompt shows up. Alternatively, change /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to add a sleep:

if [ "$PROMPT" != "no" ]; then
 echo -en $"\t\tPress 'I' to enter interactive startup."
 /bin/sleep 5
