Fedora 26 Workstation installer hangs for 30+ seconds after selecting language and keyboard layout
Last modified: 2017-07-15 02:15:41 EDT
Description of problem:
On the very first screen after launching the Fedora installer, you're presented with a list of languages and keyboard layouts. After making a selection here, it hangs for about 30 seconds or longer before continuing to the next screen. During this time there's no indication of what's happening, and users might assume that there was an error and Anaconda is going to crash, or force Anaconda to exit prematurely, as I did the first time I encountered this today.
Happens every time I launch the Fedora live usb.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install live image of Fedora 26 Workstation x86_64 onto a thumb drive, using Fedora Media Writer.
2. Boot into live OS.
3. Launch Anaconda by clicking on "Install To Disk" in the welcome message.
4. Choose a language.
Anaconda hangs for about 30 seconds when I choose English (US). It hung for about a minute when I chose Español (Mexico).
Anaconda should proceed almost immediately, or else give some sort of progress indicator, preferably with a brief note on what it's doing ("Setting up your chosen language").
