Description Bernd Bartmann 2003-01-22 21:17:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: I just installed Phoebe2 on my notebook and configured it to come up in text mode (runlevel 3).On the first boot I noticed that the system tries to start firstboot. "Starting firstboot: " stays there for at least 1 minute and then I get my login prompt. It even creates /etc/sysconfig/firstboot containing RUN_FIRSTBOOT=no. Is this really the intended behaviour for runlevel 3? Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Installe Phoebe2 and configure it to come up in text mode (runlevel 3) 2. Watch the firstboot message during system startup 3. Additional info:

No, it's supposed to pop up a text-based dialog asking if you want firstboot to run or not. Something is wrong in the initscript because the chars are being sent to /var/log/messages instead of starting the tui interface. I'm trying to sort it out.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-01-31 20:58:27 UTC
I've run out of time to fix this properly. I've changed firstboot so that if it detects that the machine is booting into runlevel 3, it assumes that you don't want to see firstboot at all, so it writes the /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file and disables the initscript with chkconfig so that firstboot is never run. Should be implemented in firstboot-1.0.5-1.

There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period of time. I am closing these as Rawhide now. If you find that the issue is not fixed, please reopen this report.
