This came up on the user@ list recently so I filed a docs bug. The
gist is that because it boots graphically, and Anaconda inst.rescue is
text based, there's no rescue. Further, rescue.target and
emergency.target aren't functional either because systemd requires
root login password for those, but the lives don't have a root
So what I've suggested in the bug for docs is the user can use
init=/bin/bash if they need access to a shell, but... I'm not really
sure if there's a better way to handle this? Suggest the user download
a netinstall image for rescue?
This isn't a new question, FWIW; anaconda rescue mode is explicitly a
feature of images that boot directly to anaconda. We should make this more
clear and offer alternatives for live image operations, probably. Thanks
for bringing it up!
