problem on video
Description of problem:
After selecting language in anaconda, there is a white background shown and anaconda wont't proceed to next screen (virtualized) or is extremly slow (bare hardware)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 20 Alpha RC2 (both 32 and 64bit)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot netinst
2. Select language and be ok with your fate
White background is shown and nothing else happens
Next screen of setup should be shown
Actually it proceeds to the next screen eventually, even in VM. It just takes a long time (30 seconds or more). I guess it depends on the network speed and mirror selection. My guess is that anaconda threading is broken somewhere and the GUI waits until a (part of) metadata is downloaded, only then it is refreshed.
This occurs on both architectures, VM and bare metal. There's no such problem with DVD. Proposing as a Final blocker and an Alpha freeze exception.
Lukas, please wait until the screen is refreshed and then append logs, thanks.
It does have white screen after language screen but only 5-10 sec here in VirtualBox on i7 with cable access. (RC-2 x86_64 boot from.iso -1440 memory in VB)
Yes, it took a very long time for me with the netinst (over a minute with my 3 Mb/s DSL) but eventually proceeded. With the DVD, it proceeds quickly, presumably since it doesn't have to download.

anaconda-20.17-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
Seems that anaconda 20.17-1 solved the problem for me
Yes, F20 Alpha RC3 netinst is quick again when showing the main screen.
Discussed in 2013-09-18 blocker review meeting . While not a release blocking issue, this bug is an annoyance and would be good to fix before f20 alpha release. A tested fix would be considered past freeze.
anaconda-20.17-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
