Firstboot log

Description of problem:
After installing F10 Snap3 and then rebooting, I am faced with Firstboot.
When I complete all the steps, I should be presented with GDM. Instead of that, all I get is a black screen.

Switching VTs work so that I can login, launch gdm myself, startx or do whatever I want. But shouldn't the transition from Firstboot to GDM be automatic ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The versions available on the F10 Snap3 x86_64 image.

How reproducible:

Note that I was faced with this issue since beta (but unfortunately, I should have reported earlier).

Additional info:
I'll attach the firstboot log.

Smolt fails to send my hardware profile, so I'm attaching its output too, for informations on my hardware.

For the record, I posted a comment (as well as smolt full error message) on bug 447703.

Could the two be related ? Like smolt failing would not let Firstboot to move to GDM ?

Shouldn't be too hard to test that - what happens if you choose to not send the smolt data?
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2008-11-03 14:14:51 EST
Ah yes, reproducable in all cases.  This should be fixed in the next build of firstboot.  Thanks for the report.
