Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238297
"What next" prompt after livecd install would be helpful
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:17:32 EST
Description of problem: After installing FC7 test4 from the liveCD, the installation ends with a
"installation successful" window that has a quit button as the available action. A reboot is needed to
complete the first-time install routines. It would be nice if that were an option, or if at least the
"installation successful" window include a note that a reboot is needed to finish.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Haven't tried it a 2nd time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from FC7 test4 CD
Actual results: successful install
Expected results: suggestion to reboot or a "reboot now" dialog.
Unfortunately, at this point we are completely string frozen and thus can't do
any more changes to the text.
I want to look at doing some better wrapping of anaconda for this for F8
*** Bug 437814 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Present the user some installation summary after Live CD install. Suggest that
if user want to use his freshly installed system that he should reboot - or to
keep working in live cd enviroment without reboot.
And during the restart or shutdown eject the CD so it doesn't start again but
grub from Hard Drive starts Fedora.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Added something along these lines to anaconda git
The eject on reboot is being tracked as bug 239928
