Description Adam Williamson 2015-08-05 20:55:37 UTC
To reproduce: do a clean install of Fedora 23 Alpha RC1 Server DVD and boot it.

Result: systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service fails. Errors:

● systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service - Create Volatile Files and Directories
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2015-08-05 15:43:43 CDT; 10min ago

This could perhaps be to do with Server using xfs for /?

Proposing as a Final blocker: "All system services present after installation with one of the release-blocking package sets must start properly, unless they require hardware which is not present." - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_23_Final_Release_Criteria#System_services

Comment 1 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-08-06 01:34:43 UTC
This is because of XFS. Apparently every filesystem behaves differently.
Downgraded to a warning in https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/560.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2015-08-20 17:57:41 UTC
Discussed at 2015-08-20 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2015-08-20/f23-blocker-review.2015-08-20-16.05.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per criterion cited in description.

Note: we are generally of the opinion that 'carry on failing, but call it a warning instead of an error' is not a good fix here. tmpfiles exists for a reason, it not working properly would appear to be something of a problem.

Comment 3 Petr Schindler 2015-09-16 08:28:45 UTC
This still happens with Beta RC1 Server (DVD).
