This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-10-14 06:48:11 EDT
The firstboot utility is deprecated and no longer developed in Fedora 19 and newer releases. It was replaced by the initial-setup utility with a completely different codebase. If you still have any similar problems with Fedora 19 or later, please file a new bug against initial-setup or gnome-initial-setup if you did a GNOME install.
