Inserting install disc 3 in "Install Documentation" causes firstboot to terminate before completion
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:10 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.
Not sure, only did it once.
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?
Created attachment 93210 [details]
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.
I got this problem once. But i can't reproduce it.
Should be fixed in firstboot-1.1.14-1. Thanks for the report.
