Description Doncho Gunchev 2007-03-07 21:29:27 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-keyboard requires firstboot?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  It sounds logical that firstboot may/should requires lots of system-* 
chkconfig, authconfig... tools, but the oposite sounds very strange (I for one 
always remove firstboot* after install).

Comment 1 Richard Dawe 2007-06-13 10:29:46 UTC
On one of my systems, firstboot actually hangs the machine (see bug #244006). I
used to be able to uninstall it easily. Now I have to "rpm -ev --nodeps" it,
which makes me feel dirty. ;)

Comment 2 Doncho Gunchev 2007-06-13 11:30:53 UTC
You can simply 'chkconfig firstboot off'.

Now I feel stupid. Thanks for the tip. 8)

Requires firstboot due to placing files in the firstboot directory structure.

Comment 6 Tim Landscheidt 2009-03-19 13:23:21 UTC
system-config-language-1.3.2-3.fc10.noarch seems to use the firstboot directory structure as well, but to be able to do that without a package requirement:

| [tim@lockfix ~/Desktop/Agenda]$ rpm -qf /usr/share/firstboot/
| system-config-language-1.3.2-3.fc10.noarch
| firstboot-1.102-1.fc10.i386
| [tim@lockfix ~/Desktop/Agenda]$

It would be really nice if the dependency of system-config-keyboard on firstboot could be lost as firstboot draws in metacity and other packages in return.

Comment 7 Matt McCutchen 2010-04-02 18:20:59 UTC
The firstboot dependency could be moved to a subpackage, like smolt-firstboot.  Please reopen.
