Britty process takes forever to shutdown

Everytime I need to shutdown or reboot the computer, there is this Britty process that takes more than a minute before it shutsdown:

It is happening on my host machine, not guest machines for some odd reason.

And when I turn on the computer and boot into endeavour I get these error messages from Britty (though OS still works fine):

Not too sure why this happens?

Do you real need brltty? Do you have an external braille display for blind people?

If not I suggest you tell dracut do omit it. You can do that in a congfig file in /etc/dracut.conf.d.

This is what I have in /etc/dracut.conf.d/myflags.conf:

omit_dracutmodules+=" brltty resume multipath tpm2-tss "
omit_dracutmodules+=" iscsi dmraid network-wicked rngd biosdevname bootchart "
omit_dracutmodules+=" dash busybox memstrack brltty dbus-broker "
omit_dracutmodules+=" fcoe fcoe-uefi cifs nbd nfs nvmf lvm mdraid "
omit_dracutmodules+=" zfs bluetooth "
omit_dracutmodules+=" network iscsi mksh "

Do I need to run something else for dracut to take effect?

THanks for your response I will do this :slight_smile:

just one thing:

omit_dracutmodules+=" brltty resume multipath tpm2-tss " do I need all of this resume multipath tpm2-tss if I am just disablinh britty?

No, you don’t need any of that other stuff. They were just showing their config as an example.

omit_dracutmodules+=" brltty "

Note there are leading and trailing spaces inside the quotes.

You will have to rebuild your initramfs afterward as well (sudo dracut-rebuild, or just reinstall your kernels), and then the reboot after next will be on the new image.


Also, to the OP, make sure you spell it correctly. It’s brltty not britty, with an L. :wink:
