Summary: systemd-sysvinit: when this is installed, I can't
boot, nm crashes, other issues
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.1
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

When systemd-sysvinit is installed, I can't boot.
Specifically, it boots up to the point where the gettys are available, however:

a) X is not started
b) I can punch my username + password in, and I see "the last time you logged
in was..." but never a shell.
c) control-alt-delete shows a networkmanager traceback on the screen

Furthermore, when booting with init=/bin/sh, control characters don't work
(control-c, for I dearly hope you don't less something or start something that
might hang, control-s, control-q, control-z -- none of them work).

I have a digital photo of the network manager traceback.

Lastly, if you hit control-d or type 'exit' + return (with init=/bin/sh), init
crashes and the entire box panics instead of rebooting. I have a screenshot of
that, too, but since it happens 100% of the time it should be easy to test for.

Reproducible: Always
