Description Branko Grubić 2013-10-20 21:56:11 UTC
Description of problem:
I tested Fedora KDE Live image (BETA TC5 (and older)), If I skip user account setup in anaconda, and just set root account, after install system boot up to login screen, where user cannot log in. I need manually to switch to tty, and create a new user account. Initial setup doesn't run.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know which version is used on TC5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run liveinstall
2. don't set user account (I tested with root account enabled/configured, no user, maybe no_root and no_user is not possible?) 
3. restart into new system

Actual results:
Initial setup doesn't run on new live installs if no user account is created in installer

Expected results:
Initial setup runs on new installs when no user account is created in installer

Additional info:

Comment 1 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-10-21 11:07:21 UTC
Can you please attach the output of the 'journalctl -u initial-setup-graphical.service' command?

initial setup log

Comment 3 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-10-22 08:59:41 UTC
There is no error in the log. And I've just tested the installation from the F20 Beta TC5 live image and the initial-setup utility ran successfully on the first boot letting me create a user account. Can you please retest this once more?

Comment 4 Branko Grubić 2013-10-22 18:54:57 UTC
You tested BETA TC5 KDE? (maybe this is KDE live specific?), I'm now not 100% sure, but I think I tested TC5, and initial-setup didn't show up after first boot, but sddm and empty login screen. 
I cannot test it now, but tomorrow maybe.

Comment 5 Branko Grubić 2013-11-02 23:00:17 UTC
I tested F20 Beta-RC2, initial-setup doesn't start if regular user account is not created in anaconda, last time you said it works ( comment #3 ), did you tested KDE live image or not?

Comment 6 satellitgo 2013-11-03 00:10:15 UTC
f20-Beta-2 x86_64 DVD dd USB install to usb Hard Disk:
Anaconda 20.25.5-1

Use Case to test:
Root Password set but no user:

On Reboot after install: 
"No user will be created" 

Click on it to get User creation Spoke:

 [ ] Make this user administrator
 [x] Require a password to use this account

 * Administrator ****will be created

                                   [Finish Configuration]
Logs in to KDM? with USER and blank password box

enter password in box and KDE starts

Comment 7 satellitgo 2013-11-03 02:09:28 UTC
f20-beta-2 Live KDE x86_64 burned to DVD
Booted live DVD install to Hard Disk

Connected to wireless AP

Use Case to test:
Root Password set but no user:

Exactly the same behavior as seen in Comment 6

Comment 8 Branko Grubić 2013-11-03 06:28:24 UTC
satellit, thanks for testing, I don't understand why it doesn't work for me, on two different machines!? :(

journalctl output for initial-setup-graphical.service

Log from latest install, probably the same as old one?

Nothing that bugs me in that log.

Could you please try running 'initial-setup' from a shell as root when logged in the KDE session of the newly installed system? If you hit Quit instead of Finish Configuration it won't do any changes to the system. That should tell us if it runs, skips itself or what. Thanks!

Comment 11 Branko Grubić 2013-11-12 17:18:38 UTC
Now I tested Beta-RC5 xfce live, same problem, initial-setup doesn't start. I tried starting it from a tty also from X (as root), doesn't show up. (I have user created already, (with useradd))

In anaconda, as before I just configured 'root' account, no user account.

Comment 12 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-11-13 13:39:55 UTC
What was the output and return code when you tried to run Initial Setup on a tty and X server?

Could you please attach 'journalctl -u initial-setup-graphical.service' from that machine?

initial-setup log

There is no output when I try to run it, it always return 0. (using "echo $?") 
And when I try to run it (with or without X running) from a tty, it starts new X session I think, shows mouse cursor and a black screen, and after few seconds it dissapers. (I think this also happens on every boot?) (systemctl is-enabled initial-setup-graphical.target, says 'enabled')

Comment 14 Branko Grubić 2013-11-13 15:09:23 UTC
sorry about .target, it is .service, I don't know what happened to me :(

Comment 15 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-11-14 07:22:35 UTC
Sorry for bothering you again, but I cannot reproduce the issues you describe so I'd need a bit more information from you.

Could you please try to run:
'sudo yum update initial-setup --enablerepo=updates-testing'

and then reboot? That should install a new version if the initial-setup which has better logging. The please attach the output of 'journalctl -b1' (all logs from the last boot).

Also, could you please attach the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file from that system?

I already have latest initial-setup installed ( initial-setup-0.3.10-1.fc20.noarch )

Are you really sure this boot log is with the latest initial-setup installed? It is from 'Nov 12' and I cannot see the debugging messages in it.

initial-setup is upgraded after install (from yum history, transaction ID 2,  2013-11-12 17:39 | I, U           |  227 EE )
   Updated     initial-setup-0.3.7-1.fc20.noarch                           @koji-override-0/$releasever
    Update                    0.3.10-1.fc20.noarch                          @updates-testing

I booted the machine today and rebooted again, and then did 'journalctl -b1' then saved that to a file. 

Oh, I see,  -b1  will get first log file, so that is the problem I think? 

from man journactl  (searching for '-b')
"If the boot ID is omitted, a positive offset will look up the boots starting from the beginning of the journal,
           and a equal-or-less-than zero offset will look up boots starting from the end of the journal. Thus, 1 means the
           first boot found in the journal in the chronological order, 2 the second and so on;"  

new log file with 'journalctl --since=today'  maybe that helps?

Comment 20 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-11-14 12:12:20 UTC
Oh, I meant 'journalctl -b', sorry about that.

Comment 21 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-11-14 12:16:58 UTC
Could you please try replacing the /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/initial_setup/__main__.py file with the following one: http://paste.fedoraproject.org/54003/31340138 and try running it from a terminal or console?

Comment 23 Vratislav Podzimek 2013-11-14 14:28:18 UTC
Oh, wonderful, now we finally know what happens. It seems like an anaconda bug to me, because it produces an invalid kickstart file.

Actually, I believe python-blivet produces those kickstart lines.

Pushed a fix out for this, will do a new pykickstart build eventually.
