5.69. firstboot

Updated firstboot packages that add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The firstboot utility runs after installation and guides the user through a series of steps that allows for easier configuration of the machine.

Enhancements

BZ#704187
Prior to this update, the firstboot utility did not allow users to change the timezone. This update adds the timezone module to firstboot so that users can now change the timezone in the reconfiguration mode.
BZ#753658
Prior to this update, the firstboot service did not provide a status option. This update adds the "firstboot service status" option to show if firstboot is scheduled to run on the next boot or not.
All users of firstboot are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these enhancements.
