Description Kamil Páral 2014-07-29 10:36:39 UTC
Description of problem:
If you start anaconda on Live, get to the main hub and then close the window using X button (either in the overview mode, or by using global menu -> Quit), anaconda seems to be closed (to they eyes of a common user), but in fact anaconda process is still running.

If you start anaconda again, *another* process is started. The user thinks he/she simply closed and restarted anaconda, but in fact there are two anaconda processes running. That can potentially cause a lot of problems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 20 Live GNOME

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot live
2. start anaconda, go to main hub
3. close the window in the overview mode or using global menu->quit
4. see anaconda process still running
5. start anaconda again from system menu
6. see two anaconda processes running

Expected results:
1. Anaconda should present "Do you really want to quit" dialog if it receives window-close event. The same it does when pressing Quit button on the main hub.
2. Anaconda should not start when another anaconda is running, instead it should inform the user that another anaconda is already running.

Additional info:
This is probably very closely related to bug 864470.

I have tested just with F20, but I assume there was no change since then, so marking as rawhide.

I think you will pleasantly surprised by rawhide. Let me know if you see any issues with the behavior in the F21 or rawhide live image.

Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2014-07-30 10:09:04 UTC
I tested with Fedora-Live-Workstation-i686-21-20140727.iso and window closing seems to work well. Instead of silently closing the window, a dialog is displayed asking me whether I really want to quit. Great.

A note: When I ran liveinst in terminal and hit Ctrl+C, the liveinst process was terminated (I returned to the prompt), but anaconda was still running. I would expect Ctrl+C to do nothing (or display the same quit dialog) instead of returning back to the prompt. But that's just a side remark, not that important.

Closing as fixed. Thanks.
