Description Sindre Pedersen Bjørdal 2003-10-14 12:47:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031009 Description of problem: I would like it very much if the redhat-config-boot tool could turn graphical booting on and off using a checkbox or similar. Even though I have no real experience in programing I feel quite certain this is not that hard, and its a nice little feature for the ones of us who don't like to mess with config files to turn things on and off. I'm not really sure this is the right redhat-config for this, but the name says redhat-config-boot, not redhat-config-grub so I guess other boot options that the ones in grub could be added.

Another useful feature would be the ability to erase old kernel packages. The GUI could highlight the currently running kernel (uname -r) and refuse to allow this one to be deleted. It could also give a warning if the kernel to be deleted is newer than the currently running one. My father is using RH but I have to walk him through erasing old kernels each time. For a novice, such a tool would be much safer than doing it via command line.

patches are welcome... deferred for Fedora Core 2

I would really argue that the the lack of ability to turn of graphical boot/login easily is a bug. Both ATI and Nvidia's drivers require you to halt X before installing the OpenGL drivers. So, after you install Fedora the first thing you do is want to halt X... but you can't. This makes setup more than a little bit of a hassle. I'd just like to see the option come back for Graphical or Text login in Anaconda. Currently, Fedora is too much of a hassle to install so we've decided not to use it, sadly.

Or Timeout could go down to zero in GUI field (currently timeout>=1)

I think that would be a great idea also, to add a theme boot switcher. It's really nice could configure your theme boot with a graphic interface.

Also, in case an fsck in run, the graphic boot looks like as if it run an infinite loop... Toggling on details is impossible. This is quite annoying when this happens the first time before you discover what is happening.

Does that pretty install program have an X server running when it tries to install the Nvidia driver, which is not working?

[This is a mass update sent to many bugs that missed earlier such messages due to having their version set to a test version.] This bug was originally filed against a version of Fedora Core which is no longer supported, even for security updates. Many changes have occured since then. Please retest this bug against a still supported version. Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not get to this bug earlier. This bug will be closed after a few weeks if no information is given indicating that the bug is still present in a supported release.
Comment 12 Darlene J. Ford 2006-10-31 23:31:27 EST
This is a feature request, not a bug. Is any of this functionality supposed to be implemented in FC5 or FC6?
Comment 13 Jon Stanley 2008-04-23 16:30:01 EDT
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
