auto-saved traceback of firstboot run
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.
should be fixed in up2date-4.3.29 (doesnt include the
registration modules, which arent needed for fedora)
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
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
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.
