Subject: plymouth: Kernel null pointer deference at boot time
Date: Fri, 13 May 2011 18:07:57 +0200
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: plymouth
Version: 0.8.3-18+b1
Severity: normal

At boot time, kernel displays a null pointer dereference error on screen,
instead of display manager (kdm in my case).
This NPD is always reproductible, at each boot.

All other parts of boot sequence are correct, and shift to graphical console
(ctrl+alt+f7) redisplay kdm and I can login and use the computer without any
other problem.

Hi,
your bug has been filed against the "linux-2.6" source package and was filed for
a kernel older than the recently released Debian 7.x / Wheezy with a severity
less than important.

We don't have the ressources to reproduce the complete backlog of all older kernel
bugs, so we're closing this bug for now. If you can reproduce the bug with Debian Wheezy
or a more recent kernel from testing or unstable, please reopen the bug by sending
a mail to control@bugs.debian.org with the following three commands included in the
mail:

reopen BUGNUMBER
reassign BUGNUMBER src:linux
thanks

Cheers,
        Moritz
