If you do not have an internet connection at the first boot after
installation and you choice for RHN is "subscribe later" there is a
traceback and you can do nothing to come to a normal end of firstboot.
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2004-11-22 12:39:21 EST
The traceback in comment #1 is fixed in firstboot-1.3.37 and
the latest up2date
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2005-01-14 04:49:15 EST
Fix has been confirmed with the latest code.
