Boot in runlevel 5 on first boot.

firstboot fails (b/c X is busted on this box.

Log in.

Run 'telinit 3'.

Textmode firstboot then tries to run on the same terminal I ran
telinit from, with predictably bad results.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2005-10-11 13:20:54 EDT
Right, this is because firstboot didn't run to completion in runlevel 5 yet so
it didn't write out /etc/sysconfig/firstboot, so it'll try to run again. 
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-10-17 14:48:25 EDT
Not sure. Perhaps it should unilaterally open a new terminal in text mode, so it
least can work right?
