Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 853415
firstboot isn't installed and run during first boot
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:32:00 EDT
Description of problem:
firstboot isn't installed and run during first boot - so no user is created. There is no user which could be used after system start (if user didn't set root password).
This happens with Gnome desktop installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot, choose language
2. choose some mirror in installation source
3. choose Gnome desktop in software selection
4. choose default disk layout
5. continue to the installation
firstboot doesn't run and it is no installed
firstboot is installed and run during first boot
I propose this bug as alpha blocker due to criterion:
'In most cases (see Blocker_Bug_FAQ), 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, unless the user explicitly chooses to boot in non-graphical mode. 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'
firstboot is part of the base-x group, which does not appear to be listed in the grouplist for any environment in comps. I think that's where this needs to be fixed. anaconda never selected firstboot in the past.
Fixed in comps.
*** Bug 853557 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
+1 blocker per criterion cited in report.
Still present on TC-5
johann: TC5 was built before the comps change had propagated (it takes several hours after a change to comps before a compose will reflect it), as dennis didn't have time to wait before doing the compose. next compose will have the fix.
Discussed at 2012-09-05 blocker review meeting. Accepted as a blocker per criterion cited in original report.
Due to bug 855310 I can't really check whether this is fixed in Alpha TC6.
This is fixed at least on pretc7-1 netinstall. Will test with DVD
This is fixed with F18 Alpha RC2.
Then it can be closed, since it was a comps bug - no update to push.
