- Don't check /etc/inittab for default runlevel since it may no longer be
We still ship a /etc/inittab, and this is what anaconda is writing out for now.
What's happening is that after a text install, we have runlevel 3 in the
inittab and GRAPHICAL=yes in the /etc/sysconfig/init file. upstart starts up in
runlevel 3 as indicated by /sbin/runlevel, but rhgb runs anyway.
The end result is that text mode firstboot starts up in the rhgb expanded
window. That quickly dies and leaves us with a wonderful expanse of blue on the
screen and nothing else.
Fixed in 9.0.0-3.
