Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135895
after minimal install X tries to spawn, but is not installed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
I did a "minimal" install, and after rebooting I got: Id "x" respawning too
fast... repeatedly. I suspect this is because firstboot was trying to run, but
I didn't have X installed. Not sure what the best thing to do here would be. I
guess just assume people doing minimal installs know what they're doing, and
just not add firstboot to the inittab or whatever.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. minimal install
Is your default runlevel runlevel 5?
I think so. Not entirely sure though. I've already installed X and
stuff now, so I can't check.
Was this via kickstart or a manual install? Can you attach
/root/install.log and /var/log/anaconda.log?

This was a manual install.
Hrmm, this just worked fine for me.
What type of install did you select of workstation, desktop, server,
I think I actually selected the default (Desktop, right?), then went
on later, and found it needed 3 CDs, while I only had the first 2. So
I kept trying to remove things to make it only require 2, but couldn't
find what was on CD 3 easily, so I just gave up and checked "minimal"
in the "configure packages" screen.
Aha, the going back is key. Fixed in CVS
Cool, thanks, I'm glad you're able to get even these relatively minor
