Description Berthold Cogel 2004-10-04 02:43:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
firstboot is started in runlevel 3.
According to firstboot itself it should only be started in runlevel 5.
  We are booting with serial console which makes running firstboot
even more useless.


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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install System with kickstart
2.Boot with serial console
3.Watch the fun

Actual Results:  First boot is started

Additional info:

I'm trying to reproduce it with the next installation.
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2004-10-04 17:40:21 EDT
odd. 1.1.19 has code to explicitly detect
if its in runlevel 3.

whats the output of `/sbin/runlevel` say on
that box?

It happened again yesterday on another machine during a fresh install.
I got a 'firstboot [OK]' during the first boot after the installation.
This time on the local console.
And /sbin/runlevel gives 'N 3'.

firstboot has a text mode now and is intended to start in all default runlevels.
