Comment 2 Shawn M. Jones 2004-08-23 22:00:27 EDT
I've got this one too.  After hitting enter on the grey X screen, it
asked me if I would like to "Reread the License Agreement" or
"Shutdown".  I chose "Reread" and now I'm back to the grey screen.

I had to kill X with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE.

I'm still seeing this with rawhide-latest as of 08-27.

The traceback indicates that the traceback is coming from the RHN
registration modules, which shouldn't even be installed on a Fedora
system.  I don't know if I should change the component of this bug
report to up2date or not.  Adrian will see it either way.
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2004-09-02 14:19:32 EDT
should be fixed in up2date-4.3.29 (doesnt include the
registration modules, which arent needed for fedora)
Comment 6 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2004-09-07 20:55:56 EDT
it's not throwing an activate exception anymore, but it doesn't run
properly either.  There are quite a few problems with the rawhide tree
at the moment on my test machine so I don't know where problems are
Comment 7 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2004-09-28 11:33:41 EDT
Firstboot failed to run properly on my machine again.  Rawhide of
2004-09-27.  The X session blinked a few times, but again there was a
failure to connect and no appropriate/useful error messages from
Comment 8 Jef Spaleta 2004-09-28 22:22:27 EDT
confirming that the orignal reported problems of throwing an exception
and a traceback is no longer occuring. I'm not sure what comment 7 is
speaking of, the firstboot in the development tree seems to work for
me when i re-enable the firstboot service and reboot.

I'm closing this as resolution rawhide. 
Please file a new bug report with specifics about the odd behavior you
describe in comment 7 if you think there is a bug unrelated to the
original report concerning the tracebacking.
