Description Matt Domsch 2011-08-30 04:00:27 UTC
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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use a F15 kickstart that included firstboot --disabled
Actual results:
firstboot still runs

Expected results:
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.
