Description Jan Pazdziora 2010-05-18 02:23:51 EDT
Description of problem:

The textual firstboot in RHEL 6 Beta does not offer RHN Register even if rhn-setup is installed. This is a regression against RHEL 5.5. Based on discussion with firstboot and setuptool maintainers, it's because RHEL 6 does not have TUI firstboot like RHEL 5 had, which had hardcoded

class TextWindow:
    def __call__(self, screen):
        toolList = [(_("Authentication"), ("/usr/sbin/authconfig-tui"), ("")),
                    (_("Firewall configuration"), ("/usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel-tui"), ("")),
                    (_("Keyboard configuration"), ("/usr/bin/system-config-keyboard"), ("--text")),
                    (_("Network configuration"), ("/usr/sbin/system-config-network-tui"), ("")),
                    (_("Printer configuration"), ("/usr/sbin/printconf-tui"), ("")),
                    (_("System services"), ("/usr/sbin/ntsysv"), ("")),
                    (_("Timezone configuration"), ("/usr/sbin/timeconfig"), ("")),
                    (_("RHN Register"), ("/usr/bin/rhn_register"), (""))]

in /usr/share/firstboot/textWindow.py. Instead, setup is called, and that expects the interested tools to "register" themselves into /etc/setuptool.d or /usr/share/setuptool/setuptool.d. And rhn_register does not do that.

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

# rpm -q setuptool rhn-setup
setuptool-1.19.9-2.el6.i686
rhn-setup-1.1.5-1.el6.noarch

How reproducible:

Deterministic.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On RHEL 5, run
  # ( sed -i "s/=NO/=YES/" /etc/sysconfig/firstboot ; unset DISPLAY ; firstboot )
2. On RHEL 6, run the same.
  
Actual results:
