Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209267
Firstboot crash on firewall configuration, when setting it to disabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
This happens in FC6 Prerelease, I'm pretty sure it didn't happen in test3.
Description of problem:
Firstboot crashes (and I get GDM login shortly after that) if I change setting
to disabled on Firewall configuration page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whichever is in FC6Pre, I haven't updated anything.
This happens on i386, haven't tried anywhere else.

Are you getting a /tmp/firstboot-crash.log file that you can attach to this bug?
Sorry, I can't reproduce it after booting second time (logically, it didn't set
firstboot to done if it crashed). I will try to reinstall and see.
OK, this still happens.
What I did was the following:
1. Reinstall FC6.
2. Before first starting it, set /etc/sysconfig/firstboot to *not* run
3. Get in, log in as root. Do a "yum update firstboot firstboot-tui"
4. rm /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
5. Reboot. Firstboot appears, it's centered nicely and everything.
1. Keyboard does not work. This was bug 208620, and it's supposed to be fixed
if firstboot is centered, however it's not in my case.
2. It crashes on clicking the firewall (enabled/disabled) dropdown and I'm not
getting any /tmp/firstboot-crash.log
Can I help anyhow else?
This is an x86 laptop Toshiba Satellite 1410 (non-mobile Celeron 2.2GHz, NV GF4
420 Go, standard keyboard, Alps touchpad).
I'm still unable to reproduce this. What sort of choices do you make during
installation? I'm thinking that one of the installation parameters is causing
this, but I'm not seeing it because I have been choosing defaults.
I'm using default parameters. I didn't change anything other than:
1. Keyboard -> Croatian
2. Location -> Croatia/Zagreb
3. Disabled starting ethernet card on boot and used a custom hostname.
Everything else is default.
If I additionally set language to Croatian during installation, crash doesn't occur.
Also, note that crash doesn't occur next time firstboot runs. Only first time.
Any ideas about keyboard not working while it is supposed to?
firstboot-1.4.22-1 is the version you've got right now, correct? You can use
rpm -q firstboot to determine that. Please upgrade to firstboot-1.4.23-1 from
development and see if this fixes some of your problems. I believe at the least
the keyboard problem will be solved and I'm unreasonably hopeful that this
mysterious s-c-sl crash will disappear too, even though I know that won't happen.
> OK, this still happens.
I was using 1.4.23 when I reproduced it for second time. Both keyboard didn't
work and it crashed. However, note that I *did*not* upgrade anything other than
firstboot, so I'm using everything else from FC6 Prerelease.
Sorry for bugspam, but do you have any ideas? I would like this to be fixed
before Fedora Core 6.
Nope, no ideas. I am completely unable to reproduce this bug despite a lot of
I believe there were some problems with rhgb, selinux, and X keyboards that were
discovered right before FC6 and hopefully fixed before the release. Please try
again with FC6 final and let me know if this is still happening. I know that's
a pretty lame answer, but I'm not having any luck reproducing this over here and
therefore I don't know what to do about it. Thanks.
Can't reproduce it with FC6. Fantastic work! Thanks a lot.
