[solved] systemd 220 hangs systems with rootfs encrypted via luks

Today systemd 220 hit the testing repo. I was eager to test if the bug reported here (frequent hangs during boot) was gone and updated my system with

pacman -Syu

My system booted fine and to complete the change I regenerated my initramfs with

mkinitcpio -p linux

Guess what? Now the system hangs at the prompt for the rootfs encryption password. I can enter the password and press return, the cursor advances but nothing happens. Reverting to systemd 219-6 and regenerating my initramfs again brought me back to business. Duh! This is perfectly reproducable as it happens the same way on my laptop with encrypted rootfs.

Had the same issue with 220-3 (plain dm-crypt), compiled systemd from git, did mkinitcpio and now it's gone.

Odd, I can't reproduce with vanilla kernel or my custom one. I am running LVM on LUKS with gummiboot as my boot manager.

I thought, from what I was reading from the bug reports, that the arch systemd 220-3 was also compiled from git. Odd

If you had run mkinitcpio first then you wouldn't have to rebuild anything. tongue

To be clear, initramfs images generated with systemd 220-1 are buggy; a rebuild of the initramfs is needed after installing systemd>=220-2.

systemd>=220-2 packages are built from the v220 tag (with a couple of backported commits); they are not git master builds.
