Description Hassan Aurag 2007-04-04 02:59:19 UTC
Description of problem: Reconfig mode does not work at all. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.4.6-1 How reproducible: All the time.Either boot and pass on reconfig or touch '/etc/reconfigSys' and reboot. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot and at grub prompt pass on reconfig or 2. touch /etc/reconfigSys and reboot Actual results: Nothing happens Expected results: Firstboot reconfiguration starts Additional info: This is fixed in fc6 package 1.4.23-1. I diffed the packages and found some differences, notably in the mayRun function etc... But there are also other fixes such as potential crashes (no vbox etc...). My question is really can I just copy the rpm files for firstboot from fc6 to fc5? We are shipping systems and would like the customer to be able to reconfig their system.

I don't know that you are going to be able to use the FC6 firstboot RPM on FC5 as-is due to the rhpxl (1.4.8) and system-config-soundcard (1.4.16) changes. Try it and see. If you have the ability to distribute a patched package, you can just isolate the patch that fixes the reconfig issue. That was the only thing fixed in 1.4.10.
