Description of problem:
kickstart in F15 had the config parameter 'firstboot --disabled', which would prevent firstboot from running on subsequent boots.
However, this does not work on F16-Alpha. The firstboot screen pops up (noted in text mode), then is covered up by plymouth, and plymouth hangs waiting for it to finish, which can never happen.
If instead in %post you put:
systemctl disable firstboot-graphical.service
systemctl disable firstboot-text.service
this works, and prevents firstboot from starting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16 Alpha
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use a F15 kickstart that included firstboot --disabled
firstboot still runs
firstboot doesn't run
I'm experiencing the same problem. If I run "systemctl is-enabled" for either "firstboot-text.service" or "firstboot-graphical.service" it reports enabled where it should report disabled. I also noticed that /etc/sysconfig/firstboot has "RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO" but this is ignored.
