Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 725566
firstboot doesn't default to enabled after rawhide/F16 install
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:57:46 EDT
Description of problem:
firstboot isn't enabled after a default install. It seems that F15 versions of firstboot enabled themselves in %scripts (unless I'm reading the f15 %scripts wrong). However, this support doesn't exist in the current F16 package (from what I can tell).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a default package set of rawhide/F16 from http://serverbeach1.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/20110721-3/
firstboot never starts
firstboot-graphical.service should be enabled after a default graphical install
If the firstboot package doesn't enable itself by default, should anaconda be responsible for turning it on?
diff --git a/pyanaconda/packages.py b/pyanaconda/packages.py
index a2c061c..1e4c3c9 100644

This pretty clearly hits the following F16 alpha release criterion:
In most cases, a system installed according to any of the above criteria (or the appropriate Beta or Final criteria, when applying this criterion to those releases) must boot to the 'firstboot' utility on the first boot after installation, without unintended user intervention. This includes correctly accessing any encrypted partitions when the correct passphrase is supplied. The firstboot utility must be able to create a working user account.
+1 alpha blocker
I am curious if this bug is related to the fix for bug 723526.
Confirmed fix with firstboot-16.1-2.fc16. This package wasn't in the rawhide
repo and needed to be downloaded and tested manually.
Let's keep this open until we are certain that firstboot is in a branched f16

Moved to VERIFIED. Can move to CLOSED once TC1 is available
Discussed in the 2011-07-29 blocker review meeting. Accepted as F16 alpha blocker due to violation of criteria listed in comment #1.
James, can you confirm the fix in TC1 and close the bug? Thanks.
Just tested TC1. Firstboot correctly ran on the first boot after install, and did not run on the second. I'd say this is OK to close.
