7.59. firstboot

Updated firstboot packages that add one enhancement 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.


Previously, the Firstboot utility allowed displaying only the English version of the End User Licence Agreement (EULA), which could be problematic for users who do not understand English. This update modifies Firstboot so that it uses the $LANG environment variable to find the localized EULA file according to the language set during installation. If the EULA file in the selected language is not found, the default EULA file, which is in English, is used. Users can now read the EULA document in the language chosen during installation before accepting it.
All users of firstboot are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
