Description Jesse Keating 2003-11-11 23:58:20 UTC
Description of problem:
During system init, rc.sysinit checks for the existance of
/.unconfigured file.  This file causes rc.sysinit to call a few text
based configuration tools.  At the top of the .unconfigured section,
there is a check to see if rhgb is running, and if so, change back to
vt1.  After all of .unconfigured's stuff is ran, it does not return
you to vt8 for rhgb, and so if firstboot is also configured to run,
the end user will never see it.  Instead they'll sit enternally at vt1
seeing no output.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the %post of a kickstart, or just during the install, touch
2. Make sure rhgb is configured
3. Boot the system.

Actual Results:  rc.sysinit will switch to vt1 to run .unconfigured
scripts, but never returns.

Expected Results:  After .unconfigured is ran, rc.sysinit would return
to vt8 to finish RHGB and possibly run firstboot.

More Info:  I'll be attaching a patch to rc.sysinit that fixes this issue.
