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

Bug Fix

The code handling the response to a two-button dialog prompted the user to click one of the buttons. After clicking the close button or pressing the Escape key, the response was ignored, and the post-installation process continued even after disagreeing to the end-user license agreement (EULA) in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. With this update, the code has been modified to close the dialog and stay on the underlying screen. As a result, clicking the close button or pressing the Escape key works as expected.
Users of firstboot are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
