Description Steven Cook 2001-08-22 22:13:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801

Description of problem:
using the text installer to install (either with elilo linux text or
ftp/http installs), selecting a text login instead of default graphical
doesn't set text login.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Perform a text installation of roswell on ia64 Big Sur (properly
configuring XFree86)
2.  At the X configuration dialog, choose text login, instead of graphical
3.  complete the installation and reboot the newly-installed system

Actual Results:  graphical login prompt is presented.

Expected Results:  text login prompt is presented.

Additional info:

tested this on UP & DP configurations, with 1GB RAM.  Verified the
graphical installer (CD/NFS install) does not have this issue.  No errors
were reported on virtual terminals before the end-of-installation reboot
took place.

This entry was logged against roswell2 (7.1.94 w/ kernel 2.4.7-2smp and
2.4.7-2), although it was also observed under roswell1.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-08-24 15:52:05 UTC
We (Red Hat) really need to fix this before next release.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-24 19:45:35 UTC
I can't reproduce this here.  Note that text defaults to text login so if you
changed it, you changed it to graphical from being text.

Comment 4 Steven Cook 2001-08-25 01:37:50 UTC
I can no longer reproduce this issue, either.  Leaving closed as operator error.
