Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 474733
Use Network Login crashes firstboot
Last modified: 2008-12-12 09:23:44 EST
Description of problem:
When running firstboot after installing Fedora 10 off the i686 KDE Live CD, I click the "Use Network Login..." button on the "Create User" screen and the screen goes black, leaving me just the mouse. I can't switch to another tty, and keyboard input is ignored, though I can move the cursor around.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot this Live CD: http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/torrents//Fedora-10-i686-Live-KDE.torrent
2. Install the system using the installer.
4. Continue through screens until you get to the "Create User" screen, then click "Use Network Login...".
Screen goes blank, does not recover.
I'm not sure. I'm going to try a different Live CD now.
Dell Vostro 200 on internal company network. X3000-series graphics card, I believe.
Afterwards, is there a /tmp/firstboot.* file available? That file might explain what happened, though it seems to me that either X has crashed or authconfig-gtk has crashed.

Do you have the authconfig-gtk package installed? It looks like firstboot is missing a Requires on that package and for some reason you probably do not have it installed. If so, just yum install it to fix the issue on your end and I'll add the Requires to make sure it's fixed for the future too.
$ rpm -q authconfig-gtk
package authconfig-gtk is not installed
Okay, install that package with yum and I'll make sure this is fixed in the next build of firstboot. Thanks for the bug report.
