Description Robert Allerstorfer 2007-04-03 04:03:59 EDT
Description of problem:

Shipped "/etc/yaboot.conf" misses quotes in init-message entry

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

all so far released, including those coming with FC5, FC6, ...

How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot your ppc based computer into Linux (by pressing "l" at the first yaboot
prompt)
2. Watch the first lines on the new screen
  
Actual results:

Welcome

Expected results:

Welcome to Fedora Core!
Hit <TAB> for boot options

Additional info:

To solve this bug, "/etc/yaboot.conf" has to be changed:

currently (not correct):
init-message=Welcome to Fedora Core!\nHit <TAB> for boot options

properly:
init-message="Welcome to Fedora Core!\nHit <TAB> for boot options"

FC5 and FC6 are EOL. Is still problem in FC-7 and above?
Comment 3 Robert Allerstorfer 2008-03-26 10:53:12 EDT
Yes, nothing changed since I submitted this bug one year ago.
Comment 4 Roman Rakus 2008-03-27 08:30:47 EDT
Yes. I have take a deeper look at the problem and probably it's anaconda's
cause. Adding anaconda-maint-list@redhat.com to CC.
Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2008-03-31 10:58:07 EDT
This will be fixed in the next build of booty.
