I'm in the habit of including 3 on cmdline in all stanzas on all my

customizing Grub stanzas during installation. I also include
kexec_reboot=0 on installation cmdline. As a result, first boot, a
full boot to POST, doesn't start X, and firstboot doesn't run. If I
immediately reboot, remembering to remove the 3 from cmdline,
firstboot still does not run. Another boot, leaving 3 on cmdline,
trying yast firstboot from root login on tty starts yast with message
"No workflow defined for this installation mode." The same happens
from yast2 firstboot. How can one get firstboot to run prior to first
X login after having forgotten to leave 3 off the first boot's

Hi Felix,
What version do you use? If factory, then new installation work-flow do
not contain second stage (first boot). So it is correct that it do not
show and also that there is no work-flow. Intention is that because
majority of users use autoconfig, then configure it in first stage and
other can modify what they need using yast modules. It also allows to
install system with no yast on it, if someone want it or want to manage
configuration automatic e.g. via chef or puppet.
If you use 13.1 or older, then it is strange that it doesn't work and
we probably need logs for it.
