Description of problem:
It's not possible to do initial-setup configuration using ssh on RHEL-8.0.0-20190129.0 / s390x. initial-setup starts on the main console (ttyS0) after reboot to installed system, but doesn't start when logging in to the system via ssh (pts/0). After logging via ssh, only a warning message is printed and it's not possible to provide any input using ssh, moreover the initial-setup main menu (hub) is printed for a second time to the main console. I could at least finish initial-setup configuration using the main console though.
This is the warning after ssh login to the machine:
warning: consoletype is now deprecated, and will be removed in the near future!
warning: use tty (1) instead! More info: 'man 1 tty'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL-8.0.0 on an s390x machine using kickstart with initial-setup package included, as well as 'firstboot --reconfig' kickstart command
2. Log in to the installed system for the first time using ssh
Just a warning appears, user can't finish initial-setup configuration using ssh.
User can successfully finish initial-setup configuration using ssh.
Doc text looks good to me.
Should be fixed by the following pull request: https://github.com/rhinstaller/initial-setup/pull/103
Moving to VERIFIED based on testing with initial-setup-0.3.81.5-1.el8.
