Problem description:
Installing oracer1 (opteron e326 system) with the 12/20 rawhide x86_64 build
installation completes, but on reboot the following displays:
An error has occurred in the Date and Time module.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 494, in loadModules/vbox, 
pix, title=module.launch()
File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py". line 77, in lauch self, 
File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 55, in setupScreen self, 
dateWindow=mainWindow (firstboot=True, showPages=["datetime", "ntp"])
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'showPages'

Since there is a problem with the Date and Time module, Red Hat Setup will not 
load this module and will attempt to run the remaining modules.

Please file a bug against "firstboot".

Report in /root/firstboot.1135201870.58.
The system boots up, but there is a blank box titled "Question" on the screen, 
and as soon as it is closed it pops back up.  I can't select Applications, 
etc, and can't open a terminal, so I haven't accessed the report mentioned 
above.  The system is unusable.

If this is a customer issue, please indicate the impact to the customer:
     System is unusable.

Hardware Environment
    Machine type (p650, x235, SF2, etc.): e326
    Cpu type (Power4, Power5, IA-64, etc.): x86_64
Is this reproducible?  Yes, I did it twice.
    If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it?  1 hour
    Describe the steps: Install rawhide on an x86_64 opteron system and   
reboot.  During installation I selected all the base choices. Did not choose 
GNOME, X development, print, office, games, graphics or some other unnecessary 
packages.  Did select other development packages.  Time chosen was America, 
Chicago, and I checked "Uses UTC clock".  If these choices are important, I 
can go back through and write down exactly what was chosen.

Is the system (not just the application) hung?  No,
Did the system produce an OOPS message on the console?  No.

Is the system sitting in a debugger right now?  No.
