Feature changed by: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh)
Feature #309373, revision 3
Title: end of installation: please stop

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Maciej Pilichowski (truemacias)

Description: When you install the
system, installer install all the packages, at some point everything is
done, and installer reboots. Now, here is the problem -- installing can
take some amount of time, so it is not a guarantee user looks at the
monitor. When user comes back, she/he cannot be sure everything was
fine -- maybe installer crashed in 99%, maybe there was power outage,
and so on. So the wish is -- when everything is done, and installer is
about to reboot _stop_. Don't do any countdown timer, wait for the
user, so he/she could see everything was fine, and can click "next" to
reboot and start his/her freshly installed system.

This behaviour (automatically reboot after having completed phase1) is
actually considered a feature by some people.

+ #2: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-05-06 23:02:40)
+ If yast2 crashed, it will return to linuxrc and stop there.
