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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a text installation of roswell on ia64 Big Sur (properly
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.
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
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.
We (Red Hat) really need to fix this before next release.
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.
I can no longer reproduce this issue, either. Leaving closed as operator error.
