Description David Jansen 2017-11-24 10:00:00 UTC
Created attachment 1358584 [details] anaconda.log Description of problem: Installation using a kickstart file seems to work fine, except when the 'lang' setting is used to select a langage. It doesn't matter which language is selected (en_US, en_UK, en_US.UTF-8, nl_NL etc), in all cases, the installation crashes shortly after the main anaconda gui screen is shown (which then disappears replaced by a black screen plus mouse pointer cursor). At that point, virtual console 1 shows that anaconda received signal 11 and dumped core. PS: I have tried this with the kickstart file in various places, just to see if that makes a difference (on usb stick, over http, over nfs). Also tried in VNC (my preferred method) and on the local console, and tested this on 3 different computers.

Hello, Could you please provide us the kickstart file you are using. It looks to me like there is some specific settings which is causing the crash. Thank you.

Created attachment 1359428 [details] A minimal kickstart file that can reproduce the bug The logs from the actual install attempt had an more elaborate kickstart, but the attached version is sufficient to reproduce the crash for me. When the 'lang' setting is removed, installation proceeds normally. Other valid versions for the lanugage give me the same results

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life. On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.

Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
