Fix for hanging at bootup

September 01, 2019 — BarryK

A couple of the guys testing Easy 1.2 and 2.1 have reported that bootup hangs at the message "Making the filesystem usable...". I have also got that a few times in the past.

I think that I have figured out where it is hanging. Not quite sure why, but think it is in a while-loop that never exits, while waiting for usb-storage devices to become available, in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit. Actually, don't think that we need that waiting loop, so have removed it. The problem should be fixed. That wait was really a leftover from the Quirky days, but the initrd of EasyOS provides the required wait.
