User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
During boot, if I click "show details", I see the text boot script messages.
Then it changes back. I have to click "show details" again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2005-03-16 15:14:44 UTC
Make that five times.
Four times before "staring pcmcia", and one time after that (not exactly sure when).

Tested by running from VMware under high load.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-07-06 09:20:18 UTC
This is still broken.

To reproduce:
 1. Turn on the PC
 2. Click "Show details" when it shows
 3. Wait for it to switch back

So "Show details" is broken.

Comment 3 Mary Ellen Foster 2005-11-01 13:52:39 UTC
I think what's going on is, rhgb is set up so that if something takes a while
(for me, it's ntpdate), it switches to details view, and then when that
time-consuming thing finishes it switches back to non-details view.

Problem: it does the "switch back after time-consuming event" thing even if you
had *manually* switched it to details view.

I think it should only automatically switch *back* from details view if it
automatically switched *to* details view.

Stop rhgb switching back automatically when it was switched manually

Here's a proposed patch against Rawhide rhgb to make it not automatically
switch back to "no details" view if it was manually switched to "details" view.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-10 15:45:41 UTC
Thanks, Mary.

I've applied it. It should be in tomorrow's rawhide.

Updated patch

Okay, whoops, that previous patch didn't actually fix the issue. Here's an
updated version -- actually *tested* this time -- that I think should actually
make the change in the correct place.

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2006-01-20 20:45:25 UTC
This seems to be broken in FC5T2.

Comment 8 Wade Mealing 2006-01-24 04:57:26 UTC
Didnt see the problem in FC5T2.

When did you try ?

Comment 9 Need Real Name 2006-01-24 07:06:06 UTC
I tried yesterday (is that what you mean?).
I'll try again later if rawhide has no broken dependencies.

Comment 10 Rahul Sundaram 2006-02-20 10:17:52 UTC

Cant reproduce this problem on the latest rawhide. Assuming fixed. Closing

Comment 11 Need Real Name 2006-02-20 14:25:24 UTC
I can.

Comment 12 Need Real Name 2006-03-02 10:58:56 UTC
Still broken.

Comment 13 John Newbigin 2006-05-09 04:11:47 UTC
This is also a problem with EL4.  I see it with the delay on starting networking
(it takes ages for use to get DHCP addresses) and with ntpd (it's just slow).

It seems silly to file a new bug under EL4.

See bug 251321 for some relevant discussion

Comment 16 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-08 15:45:10 UTC
This should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.  We can reopen it if there are any
further problems.
