Description Colin Walters 2004-10-15 13:51:57 EDT
User-Agent: Build Identifier: I did a "minimal" install, and after rebooting I got: Id "x" respawning too fast... repeatedly. I suspect this is because firstboot was trying to run, but I didn't have X installed. Not sure what the best thing to do here would be. I guess just assume people doing minimal installs know what they're doing, and just not add firstboot to the inittab or whatever. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. minimal install 2. ... 3. Profit!

Is your default runlevel runlevel 5?
Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-10-15 16:12:32 EDT
I think so. Not entirely sure though. I've already installed X and stuff now, so I can't check.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-15 16:17:32 EDT
Was this via kickstart or a manual install? Can you attach /root/install.log and /var/log/anaconda.log?
Comment 5 Colin Walters 2004-10-15 16:23:17 EDT
Created attachment 105304 [details] anaconda's slitherings
Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-10-15 16:23:45 EDT
This was a manual install.
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-19 13:20:43 EDT
Hrmm, this just worked fine for me. What type of install did you select of workstation, desktop, server, custom?
Comment 8 Colin Walters 2004-10-19 13:28:24 EDT
I think I actually selected the default (Desktop, right?), then went on later, and found it needed 3 CDs, while I only had the first 2. So I kept trying to remove things to make it only require 2, but couldn't find what was on CD 3 easily, so I just gave up and checked "minimal" in the "configure packages" screen.
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-19 14:43:20 EDT
Aha, the going back is key. Fixed in CVS
Comment 10 Colin Walters 2004-10-19 14:49:13 EDT
Cool, thanks, I'm glad you're able to get even these relatively minor bugs :)
