Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170017
blue screen without message while %post script(s) are running
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:08 EST
Description of problem:
The installer does not display a message window while running the kickstart
%post script(s). If the script run for a long time, the blue screen might
the user think that the installation failed or hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-126.96.36.199-1
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create kickstart configuration with a %post script with "sleep 60"
2.run kickstart installation
The blue screen displays a message window "Post Install", then "Bootloader",
then no message window at all (while the %post script is executed, which
can be seen on virtual console F3).
The blue screen should display a message window that the %post script(s) are
being executed instead of the empty screen.
Added to HEAD for future releases
