Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184013
After text-mode install, system is configured for runlevel 5, rhgb

Description of problem:
Due to driver compatibility issues with my video card, I had to perform a text-
mode install of FC5test3. However, after successfully installing the system,
whenever I attempted to boot it, it would go through some of the usual startup
and then show me a screen full of garbage. This appears to be because it was
configured for runlevel 5, with rhgb and the GUI post-install screen, none of
which work on my system because the X server does not work with my card (which
is why I was doing a text install in the first place).
As it seems reasonable to assume that if somebody has chosen a text-mode
installation it is because for some reason or other the GUI mode installer (and
thus presumably X) does not work on their system, it seems rather dumb to
configure things to require a GUI mode X session on first boot. At the very
least the text-mode installer should ask what mode things should be configured
for before finishing the install and rebooting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a text-mode install of FC5test3
(on my system) a screen full of garbage
A bootable Fedora Core system.
