Description Matthias Clasen 2005-04-11 12:13:22 EDT
Firstboot needs an X server. Two possible fixes are

- cheat and don't do early-login on the first boot, by looking at 
  the stamp file which firstboot uses for that purpose.

- make firstboot start an X server
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-14 12:37:33 EDT
It turns out that firstboot already contains code to start an X server, it just
needs some little fixes, and then firstboot can just be moved earlier in the
boot sequence.

Ok, scratch that. Firstboot needs network.
Here is a modified gdm-early-login initscript which simply bails out if it finds
that firstboot will run.
