First Boot Fails To Run On First Boot, Runs On Second Boot
Last modified: 2008-08-04 11:44:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Following installation of Fedora 8 the first boot wizard failed to run on first
reboot. Instead I was presented with a GDM login and a system with only a root
user created. I logged into gnome as the root user created a normal user from
the GUI tool, logged out and logged back in as normal user.
The first boot wizard actually ran upon the second reboot.
Was this a default installation? Did you happen to look at the contents of
I just did a default F8 install (basically clicked next on everything in
anaconda) under VMWare, and firstboot ran normally. Are you in a position to be
able to reproduce this?
This was a default installation from the Fedora DVD. Default packages were
installed. Was installed on a clean system, not under VMWare.
I will do a reinstall in the next day or two to see if it happens again.
I did not look at the contents of /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
