Description of problem:
While the Red Hat graphical boot application (rhgb) appears on a clean install,
it failed to install when upgrading from Shrike (9.0) to Severn (9.0.93).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on an older Red Hat machine (especially 9/Shrike).
2. When asked if upgrading or installing, choose Upgrade.
3. Complete installation
4. When machine reboots, the graphical boot screen does not appear.
Actual Results: I saw the boot-time text notifications scroll across my screen.
Expected Results: I would have seen the graphical boot screen after a few of
the text messages scroll across the screen. The next-to-last message would have
been the "Welcome to Red Hat Linux" one.
The only mention of "rhgb" in the /root installation logs is in the upgrade.log
file, and it appears to be simply in the context of a full package listing.
Upgrades don't pull in every new feature -- doing so would regularly pull in
things that people may have removed from previous releases.
