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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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?
Having both BOOTUP and GRAPHICAL and a CLI is a little overkill.
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.
