Description George Karabin 2003-07-26 18:32:47 EDT
Description of problem:

I wasn't sure if any of the discs I burnt had Documentation on them or not. I
decided that disc 3 would be the most likely of the 3-disc set available for
download to contain docs, so I inserted it and tried to use it for the
documentation installation option during firstboot.

When I did this, firstboot quit executing with no feedback, and gdm executed. On
my next reboot, firstboot again ran. I finished it without installing documentation.

How reproducible:

Not sure, only did it once.

Expected results:

firstboot should have told me that the inserted disc wasn't a documentation
disc, and should have given options to continue onward without exiting firstboot.

Was there any traceback data in /var/log/messages?

tracebacks of firstboot execution from first and second boots

Here's the traceback, showing an "additional cds" traceback for the first
firstboot session. The second one was OK.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-08-28 14:51:34 EDT
Should be fixed in firstboot-1.1.14-1.  Thanks for the report.
