#3670 closed enhancement (no change required)

KDL inital menu

Reported by: RandomInsano Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc: RandomInsano

Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

When starting the KDL, either tell the user they're able to try and continue by typing 'continue' or maybe instead ask them if they want to debug the kernel. If they choose not to, try and continue processing.

It took me awhile to find out that I was able to actually get out of the KDL and it seems that many of the small blips that send me to the debug land aren't severe enough that I need to reboot. The word 'continue' takes awhile to type when you need to do it four times in a row :P

Kernel Error Occured:
What would you like to do
 >  Continue
    Continue (ignoring future errors)
    Debug
    Reboot

(after trying to continue 5 times without success

We were unable to continue processing
What would you like to do
 >  Debug
    Reboot

Just an idea.

You can type just "co". I don't think there is a need for KDL to be user friendly, especially as attempts to continue may make things worse, lead to data corruption, etc.

Instead we should make sure the system doesn't KDLs on unsuspecting users.
