Description phostetl 1999-03-17 22:27:59 UTC
Boot mode configuration
Default operation mode
(o) Graphic & Network
{ ) Text mode & Network

This option does not work anymore.


Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-24 18:58:59 UTC
I have verified that linuxconf does not change the initdefault line
in /etc/inittab when the Graphic & Network line is chosen.

I have added Jacques to the CC line so that he can follow this
bug.  Jacques, I would like to suggest that you map this option
to id:5:initdefault: for Graphic & Network and id:3:initdefault:
for Text mode & Network.

Almost right in linuxconf-1.14r2...
It correctly sets initdefault, but the very first time you run
it, it assumes graphical even if initdefault is set to 3.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-09 16:37:59 UTC
Looks to be fixed in linuxconf 1.14r4
