Description Stephen John Smoogen 2002-10-02 13:08:03 EDT
Description of Problem:

If during the firstboot, the RHN servers are not available then the user is left
in an awkward state. There is no feedback that anything/nothing is going on, and
if the sub-process dies... it seems to just come back asking if you want to
register or not.

How Reproducible:

Very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install system and reboot
2. do the NTP etc.. but cause RHN not to be available somehow
3. watch the system sit there without any feedback.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2002-10-14 16:56:30 EDT
Agreed.  This did not get much testing for various reasons.

Comment 3 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-26 15:14:18 EST
Tested in latest beta. Problem seems to have been fixed. Firstboot is also MUCH
more graceful when dealing with not being able to start X.

Kudos.
