anaconda failed to run 'pdb'
Last modified: 2016-12-02 04:32:00 EST
Created attachment 1067922 [details]
Description of problem:
As is shown in the screenshot,anaconda showed 'Pane is dead', instead of running 'pdb'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do a default installation
2.run 'kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/anaconda.pid` to make anaconda crash
3. try to enter into debug mode by clicking the 'debug' button
Please try running this again with inst.updates=https://dshea.fedorapeople.org/anaconda-dump-core.img added the kernel command line. After the crash, there will be a core file in /tmp. The core file may be too large to attach to the bug, but if you could make it available somewhere that would be helpful. Thanks.

I have put it into email@example.com:~/public_html,and hope it would help :)
pdb is attempting to import the readline module, and for whatever reason readline is ending up with libedit instead of libreadline, causing a crash.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
