Description of problem:
Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 23 Alpha TC1 on a qemu-kvm guest (I chose to install from the live of KDE x86_64).
2. Do not create an user with Anaconda.
3. Boot the installed system.
4. Observe that initial-setup keep failing (with a looping exception).
5. The system must be shut down improperly (I used CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE in order to reboot mine).
1. But the system in single mode.
2. Log in as root.
3. systemctl disable initial-setup-text.service.
4. Reboot and observe that initial-setup-graphical works as expected.

Proposed as a Blocker for 23-beta by Fedora user juliuxpigface using the blocker tracking app because:
This bug seems to violate the Alpha criteria "2.4.1 Expected installed system boot behavior" (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_23_Alpha_Release_Criteria#Expected_installed_system_boot_behavior).
"A system installed without a graphical package set must boot to a state where it is possible to log in through at least one of the default virtual consoles."
As it appears to me, initial-setup-text's mainloop crashes and loops until the system's shutdown.
initial-setup-text does seem to work in Beta TC4. I tested with the Cinnamon live since KDE live compose failed. On my first boot try, it seems like initial-setup-graphical ran but was not visible (I saw the cinnamon login screen). I booted to rescue mode and forcibly disabled initial-setup-graphical, which forced initial-setup-text to run, and it ran OK.
Discussed at 2015-09-10 blocker review meeting: https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2015-09-10/f23-blocker-review.2015-09-10-16.00.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per criterion cited in #c3 - this would be violated for the ARM minimal disk image, which relies on initial-setup-text for user creation.
23.19.2-1 went stable, so closing. Note, we should check if the ARM KDE and minimal images actually work in TC5, make sure no other issues are lurking.
