Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133351
firstboot didn't run
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
I just did a workstation install of rawhide-20040923, and I didn't get
firstboot during the first boot.
It worked fine when i ran it manually from the console as root.
This is pretty bad, as it means you can't change the resolution from
800x600, nor create a user.
Looking in /var/log/messages there is a line:
cc'ing DV, since I think this might be related to #132736
(patch for which, is in 1.3.26, if thats the issue)
What version of rhgb, firstboot and initscripts were used ?
Do you have a /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file ?
is firstboot listed in chkconfig --list firstboot ?
Is firstboot fails to start if you reboot again ?
As I said, I used the ones in rawhide-20040923, ie:
but that is after i ran firstboot manually...
chkconfig --list firstboot gives:
service firstboot supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any
runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add firstboot')
After the initial install i rebooted, and firstboot didn't run.
Then i ran firstboot manually from the console.
firstboot-1.3.25-1 ? then it's normal, you need 1.3.26 to work with
rhgb-0.13.2 , issue raised in 132736,
