Description Marian Ganisin 2013-05-22 08:14:31 EDT
Description of problem:

For manual installation it may be useful to have a chance to instruct anaconda to reboot machine right after completion of installation.

This may be improvement for user's experience. User will start the installation, then he can leave the computer unattended and once he will return back Welcome screen will be displayed.

Actual result:
At this moment Anaconda stays running as long as the Reboot button is untouched.

Expected result:
Button which will cause reboot after installation however it can be pressed during installation.
This button can be enabled only in case of all required steps completed (root password set for example).
Automatic reboot may be cancelled in case of some error or any circumstance which would require user's interaction.
For example 'Reboot' button can be enabled with label 'Automatically Reboot' during installation.

If you really need to reboot after install you can use kickstart. But we're not going to add another button for this.
