Description Jerry Williams 2008-08-09 17:25:42 EDT
Description of problem: After reboot from TEXT install, the blue bar just goes back and forth forever.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 Alpha

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from DVD and hit TAB and add text to commmand line
2. Skip media test
3. Do install, just take defaults.
4. Install finished and says reboot.
5. Hit enter to reboot.
6. Blue bar goes back and forth, forever.

Actual results:
Just sits at the blue bar screen.

Expected results:
Should show blue bar, maybe.
And then it should pop up the firstboot menu.

Additional info:
If I hit a key when it boots and take out the rhgb and quiet then it seems okay.
Maybe text install shouldn't put rhgb in grub.conf for text install.

Also text firstboot menu doesn't look very good, boarder characters don't seem correct.

If I hit a key just a little after blue bar I see a message:
failed to find sysfs mount point
