Description Gene Czarcinski 2006-09-29 18:28:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Fresh/clean NFS install from development on download.fedora.redhat.com as of
20060929.  Booted up and got to firstboot.  Mouse worked fine but when I had to
enter stuff from the keyboard (e.g., defining the initial user), I was ignored.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
development as of 20060929 from download.fedora.redhat.com

Workaround for now:  don't use rhgb.  Looks like some interaction problem among
rhgb, X, and firstboot.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2006-10-02 17:21:19 UTC
Looks like this is fixed by setting the resolution of the firstboot window to
800x600 instead of trying to fullscreen it.  This will be in the next build of

Sorry for spam, but this isn't fixed for me in rawhide's firstboot 1.4.23-1. It 
centers, but keyboard isn't working.
