Description of problem:
Not really a bug, just a few installer quirks...
One is that I wish the installer would prompt at the end for the
(presumed) root person to add a regular user. I really hate to log in
fully as root and I am sure most others would just prefer to su to root
Two is that I wish the installer would ask us for the runlevel we want
to boot into (text/graphical) instead of just assuming graphical if we
do a full install. Or perhaps include the videocard configurator RH9
did where it allowed you to change what Anaconda found to be your
my two cents
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install from scratch and follow steps
Actual Results: I was not prompted to create a regular user.
I was not allowd to choose to boot into text mode (runlevel 3) or
correctly identify my video card.
Expected Results: I wanted to create a regular user, boot into text
mode, and correctly identify my video card.
Creation of a user is done in firstboot, which is done on firstboot.
Adding back screens to work around bugs is the wrong answer, the right
thing to do is to fix things so that X comes up right and not add
hacks so that people can work around misdetection.
