Anaconda installer doesn't start after boot[edit | edit source]
When booting from network using a kickstart file, Red Hat/CentOS/Rocky Linux is stuck on a systemd screen
Starting Hardware RNG Entropy Gatherer Wake threshold service Starting Hold until boot process finishes up... Starting Login Service... ** Stuck here **
You most likely selected text mode. For some reason, on Rocky Linux 8, Anaconda doesn't appear on tty1 anymore. Instead, it gets started inside a tmux session. If something is causing the kickstart to require user intervention, you need to enter tty2 (Alt - Ctrl - F2) and then enter the tmux session (tmux attach).
