Description Adam Williamson 2018-03-29 04:24:03 UTC
Until this PR is merged:


and a fedora-release update sent out for F28, checking for and installing updates on FAW will require authentication. As GNOME does this automatically, that means that as soon as you log into an FAW install, you get prompted for a password, which looks kinda bad.

I'm proposing this as a Final FE as we really ought to fix this for Final, so I want to make sure it's on the list in case we don't get it done between Beta release and Final freeze.

Comment 1 Patrick Uiterwijk 2018-03-29 08:13:58 UTC
+1 FE for Final.

Comment 2 Stephen Gallagher 2018-03-29 12:23:23 UTC
Sure, +1 Final FE

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2018-03-30 02:03:14 UTC
The PR has now been merged, but we still need a package build...

Comment 4 Geoffrey Marr 2018-04-02 17:20:35 UTC
Discussed during the 2018-04-02 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedFreezeException was made as this affects the polish of the first boot on FAW installs and cannot be fixed with an update.

I think this update fixed it https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-88566d5117

Doing an `rpm-ostree upgrade` got me that package anyways, and after updating, WFM:

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2018-04-16 23:38:21 UTC
openQA tests are still hitting the auth request...e.g. https://openqa.fedoraproject.org/tests/223967 hit it on 2018-04-16.

Comment 7 Kalev Lember 2018-04-17 12:40:08 UTC
https://pagure.io/fedora-release/pull-request/135 that was merged yesterday fixes a syntax error in the original fix and should really make it work this time :)

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2018-04-17 21:43:44 UTC
OK, but now we need a package build. Mohan, can you please do a build with the fix and submit an update? Thanks!
