aboot.conf entries with 'console=tty'
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
The installation creates an aboot.conf on the drive with entries containing
'console=tty' -- not just tty0 or ttyS0. The cases where this occurs are cases
where in the past console was not explicitly specified. (for example boot option 0)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.2 rc (0222.1 iso)
Steps to Reproduce:
2. look at /boot/etc/aboot.conf, option 0
option 0 contains 'console=tty'
either unspecified console in option 0 or 'console=tty0'
Since /dev/tty is a pseudo-device meaning the current tty, setting console to
'tty' seems like an odd thing to do - was tty0 intended?
should be tty0, typo on my part. Fixed in anaconda for next release
appologies. On the bright side it works...
Fixed in next release.
