Description Kam Leo 2003-11-03 17:22:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit has two if-blocks which contain the following:

if fgrep rhgb /proc/cmdline > /dev/null 2>&1 && [ "$BOOTUP" = "color"
-a "$GRAPHICAL" = "yes" -a -x /usr/bin/rhgb ]; then

The release note has this section regarding graphical boot:

Fedora Core 1 now uses a graphical interface while booting. The
graphical boot screen will appear once the kernel has loaded.
Graphical booting is controlled by the GRAPHICAL  line in the
/etc/sysconfig/init file; set it to "no" to permanently disable
graphical booting. In addition, the parameter rhgb must be appended to
your bootloader command line.

The release note does not mention that "BOOTUP=color" needs to be set
in /etc/sysconfig/init in order for graphical boot to run.

Which file has the correct scoop?  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Search
for section regarding rhgb.
2. Use text editor and search /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit for rhgb section

Actual Results:  RELEASE-NOTES.HTML contains no reference to BOOTUP while
rc.sysinit contains logic requiring "$BOOTUP" = "color" for rhgb to run.

Expected Results:  Release note and rc.sysinit to be in sync.

Bill, do we really need to key off of BOOTUP here?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-11-04 10:44:16 EST
Having both BOOTUP and GRAPHICAL and a CLI is a little overkill.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-30 16:37:29 EDT
Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of
Realistically, we probably won't change this until we kill off rhgb.
