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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
This is still broken.
1. Turn on the PC
2. Click "Show details" when it shows
3. Wait for it to switch back
So "Show details" is broken.
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.
I've applied it. It should be in tomorrow's rawhide.

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.
This seems to be broken in FC5T2.
Didnt see the problem in FC5T2.
When did you try ?
I tried yesterday (is that what you mean?).
I'll try again later if rawhide has no broken dependencies.
Cant reproduce this problem on the latest rawhide. Assuming fixed. Closing
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.

This should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide. We can reopen it if there are any
