Description Dennis Gilmore 2015-04-08 18:37:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Doing a pxe install onto a cubietruck which is a dual core Arm machine with 2GiB of ram. the progress bar never updates. if i switch to the root spoke and back it will update to the status at that point in time and not update again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pxeboot installer

Actual results:
progress bar does not update

Expected results:
progress bar indicates how far along in the install we are

Additional info:

Comment 1 Paul Whalen 2015-04-08 18:53:58 UTC
The progress works as expected on a Highbank system with 4G ram, however when it finished the "Reboot" button did not appear. When the system was manually rebooted the installation had indeed completed and booted normally.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2015-04-08 19:00:15 UTC
Didn't we already have a report for this? It sounds vaguely familiar.

I'm not seeing any criteria it violates, if the install works. My inclination is -1 blocker.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2015-04-08 20:33:59 UTC
Yeah, -1 beta blocker. We should of course try and fix it before final...

Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-04-09 09:17:06 UTC
For the original report - does installation complete? I know it might be tricky to know when it completed but in such case, I think we are ok for Beta. Also as it is confirmed to work on the other ARM machines... -1 blocker for now, we can talk about it later.

Comment 5 Martin Kolman 2015-04-09 09:42:57 UTC
This looks like an architecture specific GUI toolkit issue (screen redraw not working), so reassigning to GTK.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2015-04-09 10:22:36 UTC
anaconda-widgets appears to use gtk3 rather than gtk+, so reassigning.

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2015-04-09 14:22:46 UTC
I don't have any arm hw to test this. Do you see similar screen redraw issues with other gtk apps after install ?

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2015-04-10 04:25:59 UTC
Discussed at 2015-04-09 Go/No-Go meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting: https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-2/2015-04-09/f22_beta_gono-go_meeting.2015-04-09-17.00.html . Rejected as a Beta blocker: doesn't prevent the install from running, just makes it a bit harder to see where it's up to. No criterion seems to be violated.

it is unknown, I installed Fedora Server. so there is no X on the installed system. what would be a good test? I can install and run what is needed to see.

Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2015-04-14 18:27:15 UTC
gtk3-devel has gtk3-demo, which has a progress bar in the Assistant demo (last step), and gtk3-widget-factory, which has activity-mode progress bars on its first page.

Comment 11 Dennis Gilmore 2015-04-14 19:42:22 UTC
gtk3-demo's progress bar does not update, in gtk3-widget-factory the activity bar bellow 50% updates updates, though I tried to compare what I saw on my x86_64 machine and it was not updating on x86_64, nor was it at all readable. I will attach a screenshot of what I saw

seen with f22 KDE x86_64 RC2 disks-restore USB (dd) to usb HD 
froze installer at "Installing software 64%

Retry with DVD to usb HD  using terminal "liveinst" which worked correctly

Comment 15 Matthias Clasen 2015-04-15 14:53:14 UTC
the arm screenshot looks basically as expected. 

the x86-64 one looks pretty far from it. Whats going on there ? Some custom theme ?

Comment 16 Dennis Gilmore 2015-04-15 15:36:44 UTC
standard theme. I am running kde. I have not tweaked anything. but I guess that is a side distraction that belongs in a different bug. should all the different activity bars update? or just the one? gtk3-demo's progress bar did not update, so it is repeatable.

Comment 19 satellitgo 2015-05-25 12:17:25 UTC
I see this in a Centrino 2 core MSI Windbox with 2 GB of memory with install of f22-live- KDE RC-3 from DVD. The same DVD in a system 76 i7 laptop with many cores shows progress all the way to completion. I think it may be related to more than 2 GB memory being required for updates to continue.

Smaller DE's seem to complete or go farther in update of XX%

As a test I also see this in a VM
It seems that the xx% progress gets farther, before stopping, in a VM with more memory assigned.
