Description Adam Williamson 2016-08-03 18:03:21 UTC
Since this systemd package change:


Fresh F25 and Rawhide installs have no tty on vt1. This is because /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty does not exist.

Note this, starting from a 2016-07-24 install that used the old scriptlets:

[root@localhost system]# systemctl preset-all
Removed /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty.


[root@localhost system]# systemctl preset getty@.service
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty → /usr/lib/systemd/system/getty@.service.

So for some reason running 'systemctl preset-all' results in no getty.target.wants/getty , but running 'systemctl preset getty@.service' - which is what the old scriptlet did - results in getty.target.wants/getty being created.

This is a clear Beta blocker: "A system installed without a graphical package set must boot to a working login prompt without any unintended user intervention, and all virtual consoles intended to provide a working login prompt must do so." - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_25_Beta_Release_Criteria#Expected_installed_system_boot_behavior

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2016-08-03 18:08:36 UTC
Note preset-all does lots of other suspiciously incorrect-looking stuff, when run from a 2016-07-24 install:

[root@localhost system]# systemctl preset-all
Removed /etc/systemd/system/syslog.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/NetworkManager.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/rolekit.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/nfs-client.target.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/rsyslog.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/basic.target.wants/firewalld.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/rpcbind.socket.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.nm-dispatcher.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.fedoraproject.rolekit1.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/remote-fs.target.wants/nfs-client.target.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.timedate1.service.
Removed /etc/systemd/system/default.target.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2016-08-03 18:26:50 UTC
To be clear, preset-all shouldn't be doing a lot of those things, according to /usr/lib/systemd/system/90-default.preset and /usr/lib/systemd/system/90-systemd.preset - those say that firewalld and rolekit and nfs-client and getty@tty1 should be enabled and so on. I think preset-all is flat out broken.

This bug is why most openQA tests are failing lately.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2016-08-03 18:40:57 UTC
Possibly related upstream issues:


As this is breaking openQA and clearly behaving wrong, I've reverted the change (going back to the old explicit 'systemctl preset' calls) for F25 and Rawhide until systemd folks can look at fixing preset-all to actually work right. 231-3 will have the change reverted.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2016-08-05 20:05:53 UTC
The reversion seems to have worked, so closing this...please don't re-apply the change without fixing the behaviour of preset-all...
