firstboot leaves wrong virtual console active after reconfiguring system
Last modified: 2008-10-23 15:38:09 EDT
Description of problem:
When firstboot runs in reconfigure mode, it leaves the wrong virtual console active, so the screen shows gibberish until you press Ctrl-Alt-F7 to switch to X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an already-configured system with X installed and runlevel 5 as the default, set firstboot to run on the next reboot:
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
chkconfig firstboot on
2. Reboot the system
3. Walk through the firstboot steps
4. When firstboot exits, notice the screen shows junk, until you press Ctrl-Alt-F7 to switch to the X console
This is fixed in the current release of firstboot in rawhide, which means it'll also be fixed in F10.
