Description chris desjardins 2007-08-07 18:26:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Deselecting GDM during DVD installation causes First Boot to not run and 
instead drops to login prompt.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Deselect GDM during installationg
Actual results:
Drops to login screen (i.e. no X)

Expected results:
I have KDE installed (and thus KDM) as I selected it during installation.  I 
would have expected KDM to boot up instead of GDM without issue.  The running 
of this wizard should not depend on whether or not GDM is installed.    

Additional info:

So what's probably happening is you're ending up in runlevel 3.

Can you attach your /etc/inittab ?

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-08-07 18:45:21 UTC
This is expected behavior, as we only set the default runlevel to 5 if gdm is
installed.  So the question here is whether we should change that check to be
more permissive.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-08-07 19:13:47 UTC
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
