Can not run nor install Fedora using dvd
Last modified: 2018-05-29 08:26:35 EDT
Description of problem:Can not execute Fedora 26 installation from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Consistent
Steps to Reproduce:Boot from dvd
could you please provide us more information. Especially logs from /tmp/*.log would be useful.
Are you able to get inside of Live environment and you can't just start Anaconda, if yes what error are you getting? Or you are not able to get even to the Live environment?

Jiri first of all thanks for your reply. My being out of town delayed this answer.
I can not get to the Live Environment. After the message " Started User Manager for UID 1000" the boot process continues for several seconds, then the monitor screen turn gray and with cursor arrow at its center and the machine freezes requiring a hard shutdown. After re-starting # ls -a /tmp/*.log indicates no such file or directory.
I have successfully booted this dvd in a different box with no issues. I installed Fedora 26 in this box by first installing Fedora 25 and then upgrading with dnf.
Attachment 1319268 [details] show the last several messages before the crash.
Thank you for the response.
This is not related to Anaconda. You are not able to get to graphical environment on Live media and Anaconda is started after you are there. This looks to me like you have a problem with Wayland.
Di I need to take any further action or just
wait for Wayland?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 26 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.
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
