Please attach the logs from /tmp as individual, text/plain attachments.

What I suspect happened is that the boot.iso was built with libblockdev-1.3, which moves the python gi overrides into a separate package, but that it does not have the new python-blivet that pulls in the separate package as a dependency.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2015-10-28 17:28:34 UTC
It looks like the new libblockdev landed yesterday:


but there's been no new python-blivet, the last Rawhide build of python-blivet was python-blivet-1.15-2.fc24 on 2015-10-06.

This broke all Rawhide tests (and Cloud images, as they're built through anaconda) for today's nightly. It crashes early enough that the crash handler doesn't kick in so I don't have any useful logs from openQA, but if we want to be double-plus-sure I could grab an image and reproduce manually, it seems very likely it just needs a new python-blivet, though.

(In reply to David Shea from comment #1)
There are no anaconda log files in /tmp yet when the crash occurs. There is only /tmp/syslog which, however, does not reveal any related entry.
