https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256395 Bug ID: 256395 Summary: Kernel waits 30 seconds for CD drive before mounting root filesystem Product: Base System Version: 13.0-RELEASE Hardware: amd64 OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org I dual-boot Fedora Silverblue (which I'm using for this bug report) and FreeBSD. When booting FreeBSD in verbose mode and with boot_mute off, I can see that the kernel waits 30 seconds from getting ready to mount the root filesystem and actually doing it. In this time, it repeatedly prints out this message, once every second: Root mount waiting for: usbus1 Root mount waiting for: usbus1 ...and so on... If I put a CD or DVD in my laptop's DVD drive, or a USB in one of the ports, this does not happen, which means it can't be one of the ports specifically, or whatever usbus1 is changes. I have very little FreeBSD experience, but have used Linux for nearly a year and as far as I can tell, Linux avoids waiting for a root filesystem on a USB or CD by making GrUB specify the root device in the command line. Is there a way to specify the root device in loader.conf or something or is this a bug without a workaround? -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
