Description

Kexec process can still freeze terminal when discovered menu (tty1) is active during kexec.

Switching terminal to tty2 (journald) will prevent that. Two patches required:

  • Install kbd package on the discovery image to have chvt command.
  • Call this from smart proxy plugin during kexec API call to switch the terminal.
