Bug#914517: linux-image-4.19.0-4-amd64: System freezes with nomodeset set and boots in a loop without

Robert Pommrich
Hi,

I really don't understand why the severity of this bug was lowered.
Plus, this was the only action taken on this bug beside my actions.

The system doesn't start completely, instead it is caught in a boot
loop, which renders the system unusable.

I tried every new kernel that hit backports and the problem existed on
and on. Even worse, booting with nomodeset freezes the system.

Please, take a further look on this bug. I suggest raising the severity
as the only workaround doesn't work anymore.

Thank you.
Robert

The phrase "renders package unusable" means that the package is
unusable in general, or on a large proportion of Debian systems.

I don't believe that that is the case for this bug.

Okay, what would be the right phrase for a system, that doesn't start?

https://kernel-team.pages.debian.net/kernel-handbook/ch-bugs.html#s9.1.2
has some info on how the kernel team interprets the severity field.
