Description Bill Nottingham 2005-01-14 22:40:57 UTC
Boot in runlevel 5 on first boot.

firstboot fails (b/c X is busted on this box.

Log in.

Run 'telinit 3'.

Textmode firstboot then tries to run on the same terminal I ran
telinit from, with predictably bad results.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2005-10-11 17:20:54 UTC
Right, this is because firstboot didn't run to completion in runlevel 5 yet so
it didn't write out /etc/sysconfig/firstboot, so it'll try to run again. 

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-10-17 18:48:25 UTC
Not sure. Perhaps it should unilaterally open a new terminal in text mode, so it
least can work right?
